Amid increasingly uncertain market conditions, more companies in recent years have been working to improve their resilience by comprehending the real circumstances throughout the entirety of their manufacturing processes, and by making speedy management decisions. Mechanisms for swift data linkage and utilization are essential for making this possible.
At the same time, one reason that has been pointed out for why digital transformation (DX) has not progressed much in the manufacturing industry is that many companies have built and operated different production and manufacturing systems for each of their factories and processes. This had obstructed the advancement of system linkage and negatively impacted the utilization of data to transform business.
To solve this problem, we present the Factory IoT Platform—a manufacturing IoT solution that integrates, visualizes, and utilizes manufacturing process information managed decentrally by multiple systems to optimize entire value chains in manufacturing.
