The road to Industry 4.0:
Reimagine your production and supply-chain operations with real-time intelligence and smart digital solutions

 

 

We have the solutions to help you achieve operational excellence and environmental sustainability, reduce production costs and waste, and adapt faster to market disruptions.

Transform your production and supply-chain operations for greater business agility, resilience and sustainability

The pandemic impacted factories and industrial sites worldwide, highlighting the renewed importance of business continuity and supply-chain resilience for our industrial customers. Connecting industrial sites and production equipment, digitizing and automating operations, and acting upon real-time data are critical for the future of your industrial and manufacturing operations.
We have the solutions to help you achieve operational excellence and environmental sustainability, reduce production costs and waste and adapt to market disruptions more quickly:

  • Use sensors and IoT solutions to enable condition monitoring and predictive maintenance of your production equipment onsite
  • Increase IT-OT convergence for better data-driven decision making while protecting your OT equipment and machines from cyber threats at all times
  • Track your assets and get full visibility across your manufacturing, supply chain and logistics operations to increase utilization of machines and tools, accelerate movement of inbound and outbound raw materials and goods, and optimize your logistics operations
  • Ensure quality control of your production output with computer vision and visual recognition algorithms that can identify defects more accurately than a human workforce can
  • Adopt digital twinning to monitor your production facilities, drive business process optimization and streamline the development of new connected products
  • Automate administrative and time-consuming tasks to allow your field workers to dedicate more time to complex tasks
 

Empower and protect your employees in the new reality

Worker safety is paramount at industrial sites and manufacturing plants where workers handle hazardous materials and dangerous equipment, sometimes in hard-to-reach locations. We have IoT solutions and wearables that send warnings about workers in potentially harmful situations:

  • In your manufacturing plants, warehouses or mines: avoid accidents with alerts of potential collisions  of moving vehicles or equipment
  • For lone or remote workers: detect unforeseen and sudden movements, such as a fall, and initiate timely rescue operations
  • As a protective measure against COVID-19: ensure social distancing of onsite workers, and monitor air quality in your indoor production and distribution facilities

Technology also has the power to transform the way your employees work and generate new levels of productivity and cost efficiency. New collaboration solutions and digital tools can make their jobs easier and enable them to focus on value-generating tasks. For example, revolutionize working practices throughout your organization by:

  • Using AR/VR for remote onboarding and training of new employees – particularly relevant where social distancing is still required to mitigate the pandemic
  • Enabling remote assistance and maintenance by providing AR/VR solutions to your field workers so they can request expert intervention and guidance from afar
  • Deploying cutting-edge digital workplace solutions and driving user adoption to facilitate data sharing, collaboration and innovation across departments and functions
  • Digitizing and automating repetitive administrative tasks so workers can spend more time on value-generating tasks

Use AR/VR for remote onboarding and training of new employees – particularly relevant in a context where social distancing is required.
