Increase automotive manufacturing efficiency with AWS

Leverage innovative technologies with data from existing shop floor systems to improve processes, identify bottlenecks, and detect anomalies in real time.
Automotive manufacturers need to connect millions of disparate machines (including legacy systems with different protocols) and analyze massive amounts of data to uncover insights, develop automation tools, and predict potential issues such as equipment failure or product defects.


Purpose-built solutions
AWS provides the most comprehensive and advanced set of Industrial IoT, AI, and ML solutions available to connect and manage machines and systems inside the four walls and across the supply chain, generate actionable insights with real-time and predictive analytics, and improve quality and efficiency while reducing downtime and costs.
Unmatched experience
For more than 25 years, Amazon has improved its distribution operations using cutting-edge automation, machine learning, and robotics, with AWS at its core. We bring the technology innovations, experience, and knowledge from this experience of running the world’s largest retailer to our customer engagements.
Broadest community
The AWS Partner community offers the broadest suite of partner solutions to address more automotive manufacturing workloads than any other cloud provider.
