千蠃国际官网“Smart Manufacturing (SM) systems are “fully-integrated, collaborative manufacturing systems that respond in real time to meet changing demands and conditions in the factory, in the supply network, and in customer needs.”
– National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
Smart Manufacturing is Proven
At plant (e.g., factory) level, the estimates that the demand-driven, efficient use of resources and supplies in highly optimized plants leveraging smart manufacturing techniques will lead to*:
千蠃国际官网improvement in overall operating efficiency
千蠃国际官网reduction in safety accidents
improvement in energy efficiency
千蠃国际官网reduction in cycle times
千蠃国际官网reduction in consumer packaging
reduction in water usage

These tools will help you get started on your journey.
The sample exercises, combined with the IBE and Smart Tech Update, are used to develop clear data and information requirements that steer selection of actual devices. The progression planning process looks like this:
We advocate a deliberate process of progression, working over time toward greater capability. The key is time, and the sooner you get started the better.
Modernizing your equipment for Smart Manufacturing requires establishment of new practices, awareness of performance benchmarks, and cultural change. These references are a great start to help expand your scope.
