Smart Factory and Thailand 4.0 - Partnering With You For Success
Fujitsu will help you to create a Smart Factory environment, in line with the government's Thailand 4.0 economic strategy, by analysing and understanding your situation while focusing on your business requirements (Smart Factory Journey infographic). As a strategic partner, we will create a Digital Roadmap together with you to achieve your business goals.
Our smart manufacturing solutions use industrial iot (IIOT), AI and other digital technologies to enable factory automation by bringing together various business applications, platforms and network infrastructure. The benefits of a Smart Factory are improved plant productivity through digitalized inspections, preventive/predictive maintenance using AI, better worker safety through contractor management, centralized remote operations monitoring and lower costs.
Covid-19, Industry 4.0 and Smart Factory in Thailand
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a significant impact on the manufacturing industry in Thailand resulting in supply chain disruptions, issues with shipping and distribution, and staffing challenges.
In response, Thai manufacturers are accelerating their adoption of Industry 4.0 measures to digitalize their operations by integrating IT and OT systems to maintain basic levels of operation. However, with the current trend toward future-proofing manufacturing plants and consequent need for big data analytics and insights, manufacturing in Thailand is becoming “smarter” through technologies such as AI and IoT.
Your Digital Roadmap for Success
We will consult, assess and build a smarter factory environment with you by accelerating your digitalisation end-to-end, encompassing IoT platforms, analytics and device solutions.
Greater visualisation and analysis solutions will drive your business toward greater quality management and production efficiency.
Fujitsu's Smart Factory Approach to Digitalization in Manufacturing
To achieve this, Fujitsu focuses on three key areas which are the foundation for a truly Digital Manufacturing Enterprise:
1. Availability and Safety
We connect environmental alarms, sensors, equipment, people and processes into a single pane of glass and alert you on what to do in the event of any incident or disaster. Our sensor connected devices enable you to gain better visibility into asset availability and maintenance processes. Using the real-time mobile application, your maintenance team scan inspect and assess the health of critical components in your facilities and machines, and access the necessary information. Our connected solutions deliver real-time asset monitoring and condition-based predictive maintenance to unlock the full potential of your asset investment.
Through real-time monitoring of employee and contractor environment and location, in conjunction with work permit and skill mapping, your workers’ abilities, wellbeing and safety can be significantly improved.
2. Performance Efficiency
We deliver a full set of manufacturing solutions and IT services that underpin the requirements of digitalization to support decision making by management. Our solutions leverage the convergence of IT and OT to enable smart, connected operations. Through the implementation of wireless technology, Industrial IOT (IIOT), data analytics and real-time data collection technology, 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- in real time, to drive better and immediate decision making.
3. Quality Assurance
Fujitsu Advanced Image Recognition technology revolutionizes any operation that involves a visual inspection for defect identification. Our solution applies AI Machine Learning to achieve greater automation across inspection processes. It offers much more than previous machine vision capabilities. The system captures all quality control findings which are then compiled into a Real Time Report, complete with defect summary, enabling future product improvements leading to cost reductions.

It’s time to think outside the factory
Manufacturing is being transformed by digital technologies and rising volumes of data, which the entire sector needs to think and act differently. A narrow focus on what happens inside the factory will slow digital transformation. It’s vital to think about the entire end-to-end ecosystem – from supply chains to customer outcomes. And it’s the customers who are driving change. It’s vital to respond quickly to their rapidly evolving needs.
