Smart Manufacturing

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

Transform your business with an end-to-end data strategy

Discover how the AWS Industrial Data Fabric can accelerate the ingestion, contextualization and the ability to act on data.

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.

Get started on your journey creating an industrial data strategy using AWS Industrial Data Fabric, a well-architected framework with prescriptive guidance, to accelerate ingestion, contextualization, and the ability to act on your industrial and enterprise data across the manufacturing value chain.
