What does smart manufacturing mean for manufacturers?
As business models are increasingly becoming non-scalable, non-replicable, overly complex, and costly, it is increasing the difficulties for small manufacturing firms. Using smart manufacturing technology, small and medium companies in the manufacturing industry will be able to access new and growing forms of business intelligence.
How does data drive smart manufacturing?
Smart manufacturing primarily revolves around harnessing data. Since smart factories are built on the foundation of data, cybersecurity will play a key role in the entire manufacturing ecosystem. While enabling advanced techniques such as smart manufacturing, data security is imperative. Machines, smart sensors, and robotic platforms on the shop floor generate data that is necessary for monitoring, maintenance, and the basic management of the production line.
