Composites part fabrication requires real-time decisions based on a long and growing list of variables and constraints. As production increases, suppliers are faced with more complex manufacturing environments as well as growing cost pressures by OEMs, and thus are less likely to make optimized decisions.
Theory and practice show, that the more variables considered in solving a problem, the better the expected result. However, in attempt to consider the ‘big picture’, human beings reach their limit at some point, and resort to solving parts of the challenge bit by bit, with or without software designed to address that sub-problem. In order to meet today's challenges there is a need for intelligent software to step in and look at the big picture, we must provide it with the context in which to act, and do so digitally and in real time. While some data can be received from systems like ERP, MES or PLM, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) represents dramatic opportunities as new sensor technologies collect vast amounts of data in real time, creating a rich context as never before.
This presentation will discuss this concept and the opportunity of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and will review a set of real-life examples from OEM and Tier 1 manufacturers, demonstrating the power of the Industry 4.0 revolution to take manufacturing optimization to new levels of efficiencies.
1. Participants will learn how to leverage the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to create a rich digital context and push the productivity envelope in composites part manufacturing
2. Participants will learn how to optimize real-time decisions based on a long and growing list of variables and constraints.
3. Participants will be able to review a set of examples demonstrating how greater digital contexts enable software to make even better manufacturing decisions
