Smart Factories with KIWIboards
What is a Smart Factory?
A smart factory is a facility where interconnected monitors and sensors, which communicate wirelessly with each other and with the central data system, are used to collect information about the equipment's processes. This collected data is then examined to facilitate smart manufacturing. The result is improved efficiency, operational improvements, optimized production, more precise maintenance practices, and other improvements.
How does a Smart Factory work?
Unlike traditional factories, smart manufacturing operates as one through a digital network that interconnects all its components. This integrated system includes people, machinery, artificial intelligence, and Big Data. Equipped with the right tools, an intelligent factory collects and analyzes data and uses these data sets to predict trends and events. Consequently, automated processes and intelligent manufacturing procedures can continually self-adjust, transforming the environment into a safer and more productive system.
As a result of implementing innovative solutions, every part of the factory can communicate in real-time by collecting data, facilitating seamless coordination and efficient workflows in any given situation.
Benefits of the Smart Factory
The benefits of adopting smart factory technology are substantial and become evident when implementing it. These benefits include:
1. Improved Maintenance Information
In smart factories, predictive maintenance takes priority over preventive maintenance. Predictive maintenance identifies and addresses potential maintenance needs well in advance, preventing them from becoming production disruptions. Over time, this approach transforms maintenance into a more valuable and efficient process.
2. Increased operational uptime
Improved maintenance practices lead to fewer unscheduled downtime events. This ensures that planned downtime is more targeted and productive when needed. Maximizing equipment uptime improves return on equipment and smart technology investments, resulting in higher production yields.
3. Improved production efficiency
Smart factories offer real-time monitoring and fine adjustments at the most precise levels. This ensures that product quality remains consistently high because the equipment operates at peak performance more frequently.
In essence, these benefits of smart factory technology contribute to more streamlined operations, minimized disruptions, and increased overall productivity, making it a valuable investment for manufacturing facilities.
