Digital Factory

What is Digital Factory?

A digital factory uses technology to share information digitally, including data from people, machines, and materials. A system of simulation technologies, connected equipment, and collaboration tools is required for digital manufacturing.

It combines data and intelligence from previously siloed IT and operational systems by leveraging smart sensors, affordable cloud storage, and Big Data analytics.

Digital factories may include the following technologies:

  • Big Data
  • Predictive Analytics and Artificial Intelligence
  • Automation
  • Industrial Internet of Things

Why should you invest in a digital factory?

  • Connecting and analyzing all the data
  • Predicting what will happen and giving indications
  • In some cases actively supporting human decision-making
