Empowering The Factory of the Future
Far from just a concept based on longstanding aspirations of Industry 4.0, the factory of the future means going beyond the walls of production to transform the entire connected manufacturing ecosystem. Where we once imagined a factory focused on the digital, robot-driven production floor, reality has transcended the factory floor to include the entire manufacturing ecosystem—connecting employees, processes, machines, data, and customers—far beyond what was once envisioned.
Modernizing your factory floor can help manufacturers create agile and responsive end-to-end operations and provide their customers with customized products and services:
- Integrate data from IoT with other product and customer data to create new insights into customers’ desired outcomes and generate data-driven and AI enhanced products and services that differentiate in the new service economy by delivering customer outcomes.
- Increase revenue and margins by providing a connected sales and services platform that increases productivity and compliance, and can keep up with new product and service offerings.
- Innovate using digital twins and big compute to get products that customers want to market faster, by enabling more iterations on product, manufacturing, and supply chain designs.
- Engage manufacturers’ customers with differentiated buying experiences that leverage mixed reality (MR) and easy to use quote to-cash processes to increase wins and margins.
