Smart and Cyber Safe Production Environments
Managing production assets continues to be a new source for cost reduction and process improvement. This is the combination of the digital and physical assets on our production floors.
As our devices get more intelligent, we have more ways to interact and manage them. This improves many aspects of production; Location management, security, preventative maintenance, guided processes, and even communicating with other devices on the floor.
We must also prepare to manage our digital assets. Information is one of the most important assets on the production floor. Production data is used for determining product build processes all the way to organizing and managing completed product data. It is essential that this information is managed as closely as our physical assets. Ensuring this information is secure, decentralized, documented, and uniform, will allow the foundation required to excel with the agility required for Industry 4.0
