Manufacturing companies traditionally have relied upon automating the manufacturing processes within the four walls of the factory by implementing Automation systems like SCADA and HMI to monitor and control operations. While enormous amount of data is being collected, manufacturers are not able to recognize and unlock business potential as processes and data are locked in dispersed silos.
Machines and shop-floor devices are now equipped with sensors and actuators as part of digital transformation in manufacturing which can communicate over the network using standard protocols. With advancement in cloud, computing along with areas such as artificial intelligence, robotics, augmented reality and analytics, there is enormous potential for cyber-physical systems to improve productivity in the production process and the supply chain. Digital manufacturing and digital transformation in manufacturing are bound to transform the entire manufacturing value chain and the digital manufacturing system.
