Fujitsu Manufacturing Process Optimization - unlocking productivity and new efficiencies
Today within manufacturing, tough market competition and challenging economic conditions make production errors and waste unacceptable. It’s therefore vital that manufacturers unlock greater productivity and new efficiencies. However, overcoming the challenges of increasing flexibility and speed of production while keeping costs low, is not easy.
Typically, manufacturing production processes are complicated, and this complexity means bottlenecks often develop and go unnoticed which leads to reduced efficiency, inventory accumulation and loss of throughput. With manufacturing optimization, digital technology is used to view processes and address bottlenecks in real time. Issues can then be rapidly resolved to increase efficiency, reduce inventory and increase throughput.
Through the use of industrial IoT, manufacturers are able to gain a comprehensive view of the entire production process. They can use the insight gained to make real-time adjustments to maintain the uninterrupted flow of finished goods and avoid defects. Machinery can be remotely tracked, monitored and adjusted using the sensor data collected from across the plant(s).
