A smart factory underlined by machine connectivity
Infosys undertook a digital transformation of the company’s global manufacturing facilities, connecting machines in factories, offering end-to-end visibility across production, and providing constituents with a macro view of the shop floor.
The Infosys team inspected the client’s workshops and plants to review sensor and wireless capabilities of machinery, and their maturity. We developed a machine connectivity solution and incorporated smart equipment into machines to provide managers with real-time visibility into machine performance.
Infosys implemented the smart factory solution at three of the company’s maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) facilities in Singapore, connecting more than 100 machines. In the United States, we undertook a digital transformation of eight OEM factories, connecting more than 400 machines.
Our smart factory solution improved operational equipment effectiveness by 20%.
Our smart factory ecosystem solution harmonized processes on the shop floor, offered real-time visibility into operations, and accelerated production while reducing turnaround time.
Our proactive approach allows early intervention to inspect engines and replace parts while matching demand for spare parts with inventory.
Infosys established a smart factory ecosystem to drive just-in-time manufacturing and optimize production capacity.
