Smart Manufacturing

Improve Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) and simplify digital transformation with AWS cloud services

Enable industrial transformation through IoT

From freight to factories, Industrial IoT enables cross-industry innovation. Learn how AWS enables industrial transformation through the Internet of Things.

Focus on optimizing your manufacturing operations, not on the infrastructure needed to make it happen.
Maximize productivity, asset availability, product quality, and worker safety by accessing and analyzing disparate plant data using AWS services. Use AWS machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), and robotics services to enhance real-time analytics capabilities to maximize production and enable predictive maintenance to increase uptime.
