Manufacturing journalist Thomas R. Cutler and John Maher, Vice President of Product Strategy at Synchrono, Inc., recently discussed the evolution of manufacturing technology in the recent IOT Now publication, titled, “Manufacturing Moves from Tech Silos to Synchronized Factories to Demand-driven Factory of the Future.”
Demand-driven manufacturing is a process which describes production that is based on actual customer demand with the aim to synchronize everything (workforce, method, materials, machines, and information) in order to drive flow. This process is accelerated by technology that automates, digitizes data, and connects every function within the demand-driven organization (as well as every layer of the supply chain).
The Internet of Things refers to connectivity between products and systems across nearly every aspect of life. This concept within the manufacturing industry, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) represents the ability to collect, analyze, and share data about materials, machines, and processes in the production environment, in real-time.
Manufacturing equipment, products, planning, and execution systems are more connected, allowing the people that use them to see what is really going on as it happens. The synchronized factory enabled by IIoT is able to visualize and effectively overcome obstacles and bottlenecks that once prevented and disguised true priorities.
