Unified Data Source
At the centre of data-driven advanced manufacturing is the process of data acquisition. These data can first be automatically accessed from various sources using a metadata ‘layer’. The collected historical data allows
advanced analytics to explore further opportunities to increase productivity.
Flexible and Predictive Manufacturing Systems
The flexible and predictive manufacturing systems showcases how an integrated production assembly can have the flexibility to respond rapidly to sudden unscheduled changes in demand and work interruptions. It works by collecting and
analysing data real-time, deriving insights from the collected data immediately to achieved flexibility in handling unscheduled changes.
Real-Time Process Optimization
Communication delays are undesirable as it results in production waste or downtime. At the station level, the station augments and assists human operators by providing updated work instructions using computerized sensor systems to
minimize human error.
Cyber-security implementations establish a 'tunnel' to securely connect two separate hosts. As well as finding suspicious actions within the network, determining an intrusion, and responding quickly to attacks to mitigate operational
risks and protect assets.
