HANNOVER, Germany – April 25, 2017: The machines that make up a modern factory create more than just sweatshirts or submarines. They create a lot of data. This data can tell you everything from how efficient the machine is to how likely it is to break. For plant managers, being able to see and act on this data is key. It holds the secrets to new product introduction velocity, real-time and dynamic optimization, and productivity stats at the worker level. It even allows access to a so-called ‘product pedigree’ – so customers can track a product across the supply chain.
To help plant managers tap into that data, Cisco is introducing three new solutions to the Connected Factory portfolio. In doing so, we are laying the foundation for Industrie 4.0.; and our own Digital Network Architecture, or DNA, is powering it. Welcome to the next generation of smart manufacturing.
Data must be actionable. Cisco Connected Factory brings the power of data across the manufacturing siloes of today. Our solutions provide full visibility, with a focus on three things:
