Smart Manufacturing Core
The core of industry 4.0 and smart manufacturing starts from networking the equipments on production line. The status and operation process from equipments on production line can be obtained instantly and recorded. This allows immediate reallocating various production resources. By combining smart diagnosis and decisions, the smart production system is then achieved.
The data collected from single machines, production lines and over the entire plant accumulates into a enormous database of knowledge.
Through data collection and analytical application, the overall production performance can then be improved for best production model.
This can further extend to upper levels in the plant and company
for utilizing overall production resources and improving the operation performance. Finally, strong competitiveness can then be constructed through connection between supply chains.
