Product & Production Design

High Performance Computing (HPC) allows product developers and engineers to solve complex problems using model-based design and large-scale, parallel simulations.  AWS helps you:

  • Focus on product design, not the infrastructure to make it happen
  • Accelerate time-to-results and time-to-market by running large numbers of parallel tasks in the cloud
  • Reduce costs by providing optimized CPU, GPU, and FPGA servers on-demand

Smart Factory

Leverage AWS IoT Services, edge computing, data lakes, and advanced analytics tools to improve manufacturing operations by capturing, analyzing, visualizing, and executing on plant floor data.  AWS helps your Smart Factory improve business operations by:

  • Enabling access to disparate plant data to improve Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)
  • Adding AI and Machine Learning for real time and predictive analytics capabilities
  • Creating a disaster recovery plan in the cloud

Smart Products & Services

Create smart products using IoT and Data Lakes.  Innovate your smart connected product offerings using AWS services such as IoT, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Big Data to collect, process, store, analyze, and act on machine data.  AWS helps you:

  • Offer a product as a service
  • Enable post sale revenue models
  • Predict and proactively resolve issues in the field to maintain SLAs or Service Level Agreements
 

AWS for manufacturing benefits

Improve Operations

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.

Innovate Faster

AWS virtually unlimited High Performance Compute (HPC) capacity allows you to improve your pace of innovation without the need for large capital investments. Running HPC in the cloud allows designers, scientists and engineers to solve complex, compute-intensive problems quickly enabling you to reduce time-to-results by scaling to larger numbers of parallel tasks than would be practical in most on-premises environments.

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.

Enhanced Security

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.
