The connected factory of the future
Industrial players are gradually starting to integrate new technologies to improve the manufacturing chain, increase productivity and benefit from optimal safety. So what should a connected factory of the future look like after these innovative elements are fully integrated?
A more efficient plant
The use of interconnected sensors and equipment makes it possible to gather essential information concerning the production line which will then be studied and analysed with a view to identifying any anomalies and solutions to be applied to improve productivity and minimize losses, and thus to optimize plant performance. In addition, the exploitation of artificial intelligence and other analytical technologies accelerates data processing and decision-making.
For example, the data indicated by the sensors make it possible to know in real time the physical conditions in which the machines operate and thus to modify the environment or their mode of use to ensure their profitability. This information also helps analytical technologies predict the risks of deterioration as well as the maintenance to be carried out.
Also, sensors and other monitoring equipment can identify defects in staff organization, work schedules or even space layout that affect productivity and take the necessary measures to improve the situation.
A safer factory for workers
Automation is also one of the main goals of the connected factory of the future. As a result, dangerous, repetitive and complex tasks are entrusted to collaborative robots in order to guarantee the safety of workers and at the same time, optimize productivity. This then reduces the risk of workplace accidents and the associated expenses, including compensation and temporary salaries, if necessary.
A safer factory
On the one hand, the connected sensors installed on the machines make it possible to monitor the general condition of the latter in real time, and thus to quickly identify any malfunctionsin order to carry out repairs as soon as possible. This is essential to optimize the life of equipment and to limit damage.
On the other hand, connected cameras and other security accessories make it possible to monitor every corner of the plant in real time to spot thefts and violations of the regulations that, as we know, can reduce productivity, damage equipment and cost the company dearly.
The connected factory of the future promises higher productivity and performance, a safer work environment for workers, and an effective monitoring system to minimize loss and theft. Would you like to benefit from these advantages now?
