Digitalisation in manufacturing – the rise of the smart factory

Today, manufacturers are under intense pressure to adopt the next generation of smart technology to keep pace with change, improve efficiency, increase productivity and reduce cost. With so many challenges to overcome - increased market competition, rising customer demand for innovative new products at lower cost, security threats and workforce concerns such as improving human-to-machine interaction, manufacturers must digitally transform their processes and operations.

However, whilst 82%* of manufacturing decision makers believe that digital disruption offers many exciting new opportunities, far too many are failing to implement the digital solutions needed to increase connectivity, get closer to customers and build new service-centric business models. Manufacturers’ continued reliance on unwieldy and complex legacy IT systems and infrastructure greatly reduces their ability to thrive in the new digital world and take advantage of the opportunities digital disruption brings. Those failing to adapt to change and implement the right digital manufacturing solutions will, therefore, lose out to those competitors who do.

Manufacturing process automation and connected technologies

Within the smart factory, traditional physical processes are integrated with cutting-edge IT to connect people, networks and things. Innovative IoT solutions seamlessly connect operational technology (OT) and IT to enable smart processes that utilise the power of data analytics to lower costs and increase operational effectiveness. All lines of business from sales, customer service and HR, to supply chain, finance and R&D, can be digitalised to improve efficiency and performance.

Fujitsu Connected Enterprise
As both an IT solutions provider and world-class manufacturer with over 50 years of experience, Fujitsu is in a unique position to help you to harness the power of the connected enterprise and create a highly optimised, lean manufacturing operation. We deliver a full set of manufacturing IT services that underpin the requirements of digitalisation. Our solutions leverage the convergence of IT and OT to enable smart, connected operations. Through the implementation of mobility technology, data analytics and industrial machine-to-machine connectivity, we enable you to gain insight and understanding from the vast amount of operational data you generate every day. With our help, you can transform your processes and proactively manage all aspects of your operation, live and in real time.

Fujitsu Connected Assets
Our sensor connected devices enable you to gain better visibility into asset availability, performance and maintenance processes. Using the real-time data generated, your maintenance teams can assess the health of critical components in systems, facilities and machines, as well as automate maintenance processes based on asset health indexes. Our connected solutions deliver real-time asset monitoring and condition-based predictive maintenance to unlock the full potential of your asset investment.

Fujitsu Connected Workers
We connect people and processes in a secure way. Through real-time sensing of employee environment, location, motion, and vital signs your workers’ health and safety can be significantly improved. In addition, Augmented Reality enables maintenance technicians to increase productivity as quality inspections and installations can be guided remotely.
