The demand for the consumer market is changing so fast that it is a big problem for traditional manufacturing. Customers' real-time expectations are rising, supply chains are becoming more and more complex, and it is difficult to meet current market demands through manual analysis or backward tools to manage and control the manufacturing process. Smart factories use a large amount of real-time data collected by smart sensors and the Internet of Things, and then based on the analysis of high-power servers in the cloud, and create more flexible production processes to keep up with customer demand.
The smart manufacturing model is completely different from traditional manufacturing. Based on advanced digital manufacturing technology, the factory can produce on-demand, source raw materials from suppliers around the world, avoid the risk of large inventory, and manage customer feedback through social media to achieve individuality. Manufacturing to achieve faster, more flexible, and more efficient product delivery levels.
Thanks to the development of the Internet of Things and digital technology, smart manufacturing has brought new capabilities to the factory. Although upgrading smart factories is not necessary, it is very valuable. The use of an optimized supply chain not only reduces lead times and costs, but also reduces the number of defective products in the production process based on market information.
