Incremental approaches to Smart Manufacturing
These slides were presented at Productronica, 2017.
Advanced manufacturers operate under relentless pressure to reduce costs while maintaining and – in many cases – increasing quality and throughput. Smart Manufacturing provides a solution to these challenges by harnessing the power of big data and predictive analytics to streamline manufacturing processes and improve decision making. This discussion outlines two case studies that provide clear lessons learned from Smart Manufacturing implementations in the electronics and life sciences industries. An investigation into the Smart Manufacturing practices of the semiconductor industry highlights the role that standards can play in reducing the cost and time required to implement a Smart Manufacturing solution.
