Automotive Manufacturing and Supply Chain
For more than 25 years, Amazon has designed and manufactured smart products and distributed billions of products through its globally connected distribution network using cutting edge automation, machine learning and AI, and robotics, with AWS at its core.
AWS helps automotive manufacturers transform their operations with the most comprehensive and advanced set of Industrial IoT, Data Lake, analytics, and machine learning solutions available to connect and manage machines and systems across the global supply chain and generate actionable insights with real time and predictive analytics capabilities to improve quality and operational efficiency while reducing downtime and cost.
AWS for Manufacturing and Supply Chain Benefits
AWS makes it easy to build and tailor your data lake allowing you to securely store, categorize, and analyze all your data in one, centralized repository. Add a wide variety of cost effective and powerful analytics products to process, analyze, and visualize data. Provide real-time and predictive analytics to improve overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), service levels, product quality, and supply chain efficiency.
AWS machine learning allows you to analyze data from machines, systems, and platforms across your global supply chain, combined with retail data to better match production to demand. Add connected vehicle and warranty data to preform predictive quality analytics and resolve quality problems before they impact your customers.
Lower IT/OT Costs
Focus on improving business operations and innovation, not IT and OT infrastructure. AWS pay-as-you-go microservices and serverless computing models reduce the cost of running your connected plant or smart product programs. With minimum upfront investment and nearly unlimited on-demand capacity, you can focus on differentiating your business not on infrastructure.
Cloud security at AWS is the highest priority. As an AWS customer, you benefit from a data center and network architecture built to meet the requirements of the most security-sensitive organizations. OT infrastructure cyber-attacks have recently risen dramatically. Protect your factory by leveraging S3 and other storage services in the AWS Cloud for a robust disaster recovery plan.
Machine to Cloud Connectivity Framework
Connect to your factory machines today and leverage valuable factory data to improve plant visibility, productivity, and uptime. This solution provides speedy and robust data ingestion, highly reliable and durable storage, and serverless, event-driven applications to reduce latency.
Case studies and resources
"With the help of services such as AWS Elastic Beanstalk and Amazon S3, we were able to cope with rapidly changing load requirements at a very effective cost base. This is one of the key reasons we engaged with AWS."
- Dieter May, SVP Digital Business Models
“AWS allows us to have elastic capacity for peak events, so our developers can ensure their components are working as well as possible. They can provision the elastic capacity they need and then tear it down; it’s an easy process.”
- Matt Schallert, Site Reliability Engineer
"By running on AWS we’ve been able to drastically increase the amount of development we can do. Before we moved to AWS, we added maybe one major feature every six months; now we add one almost every month."
- Thomas Riha, Architect
"AWS was the best fit because its services, scalability and market share. With other cloud providers, we would have to rewrite code to port an application. The fact that AWS makes it easy to move applications was key to our selection.”
