Smart Factory - Manufacturing Operations in the Cloud

Focus on optimizing your factory operations, not on the infrastructure needed to make it happen.

Apply AWS Cloud IoT Services, edge computing, data lakes, and advanced analytics tools to improve manufacturing operations by capturing, harmonizing, analyzing, visualizing, and executing on silo'd plant floor data, leading to improvements across critical KPIs such as quality, yield and Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).  Leverage AI and Machine Learning for real time and predictive analytics capabilities.

Benefits

Improve Quality

Manufacturing companies collect vast troves of process data but common issues such as disparate data sources, stranded data and ownership issues make it difficult to identify insights. Use Data Lakes to pull together disparate data, along with Greengrass, Machine Learning and AI to provide for real time and predictive analytics capabilities.  

 

Reduce Downtime

The same capabilities used to improve quality can also improve machinery uptime. Combine silo'd machine data across lines, and plants in a common data lake, and leverage Greengrass, Machine Learning and AI to provide real time and predictive analytics on your production equipment.

 

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 attacks have recently risen dramatically.  Leverage S3 and other storage services in the AWS Cloud for a robust disaster recovery plan.
