Smart Manufacturing is a technology-driven approach that utilizes Internet-Connected machinery to monitor the production processes. The goal of Smart Manufacturing is to identify opportunities for Automation operations and use data analytics to improve manufacturing performance.
Smart Manufacturing is a specific application of the Industrial Internet of Things. Deployment invoked embedding sensors in manufacturing machines to collect data on their operational status and Performance
Smart Manufacturing, otherwise also called Industry 4.0 is revolutionizing the Industrial world, making each industry have full control of their processes, unlike before where information typically was kept in local databases on individual devices and used only to assess the cause of the equipment failures.
Now, by analyzing the data streaming off an entire factory’s worth of machines, or even across multiple facilities, manufacturing engineers and data analysts can look for signs and particular parts may fail, enabling preventive maintenance to avoid unplanned downtime on devices.
