What is the goal of a smart factory solution? What capabilities are needed for a smart factory!

2023/05/24


Each company's competitive environment, internal resource capabilities, products and processes are different and so are the Smart Factory design goals and objectives. However, for engineering companies, the overall objectives of smart factory design are as follows (but not limited to)

Deep integration of modern management theories such as lean production, agile manufacturing, networked collaborative manufacturing and intelligent manufacturing with information technology, automation technology, network communication, information-physical systems, big data, cloud computing and other technologies. Using a series of industrial software to build smart factories with intelligent design, intelligent products, intelligent operations, intelligent production, intelligent services and intelligent decision-making.

At the same time, the horizontal integration of the entire value chain, including customer demand, product design, process design, material procurement, manufacturing, inbound and outbound logistics, production logistics and after-sales service, is realised with the support of the information-physical system. Integration of equipment and control levels, manufacturing verticals Execution levels, management administration and business decisions. Shortening of product development and design cycles, procurement and production cycles and structuring of manufacturing operating systems in a flexible, economical and high-quality manner. The main conflicts faced by companies vary from plant to plant and from period to period of development, and companies can add or subtract from the above design goals.
