Drive Down Manufacturing Costs with AWS

The next revolution in manufacturing is here. Learn how AWS can help CPG companies transform production operations to reduce the cost of goods sold and improve yield.

How Large CPG Companies Can Act with the Agility of a Start-Up

How CPG companies can use artificial intelligence and machine learning to react faster than the competition

Reduce the cost of goods sold and improve yield
Transform your manufacturing operations with the most comprehensive and advanced set of cloud solutions available today, while taking advantage of the highest level of security. AWS allows you to focus your resources on optimizing production and improving operational efficiencies across the value chain—not on maintaining the IT infrastructure to make it happen.


Improve quality
Manufacturing companies collect vast troves of process data making it difficult to identify insights because of common challenges, like disparate data sources, stranded data, and ownership issues. AWS helps you pull all of your data sources together via a data lake and apply intelligence for real-time, predictive analytics.
Reduce downtime
Manufacturers can use the same capabilities to improve both machinery uptime and production quality. Combine siloed machine data from assembly lines and plants into a common data lake and leverage ML and AI capabilities to provide real-time, predictive analytics on your production equipment.
Enhance security
AWS customers benefit from a core infrastructure designed to meet the requirements of the most security-sensitive industries like healthcare, financial services, and even government applications. Build on the most secure global infrastructure to mitigate risk without compromising time-to-market, scale, and business agility.

Create the smart factory

With AWS, CPG companies can break down data silos and create a digital twin manufacturing environment to capture production data in real time and use predictive analytics to optimize production planning, execution, and quality—all while driving down costs.
