Smart Factory in a Box: easy entry to Industry 4.0 for manufacturers
24 October 2015
To enable more manufacturers to embrace Industry 4.0, Forcam has introduced ‘Smart Factory in a Box’ – a fully functional micro-pilot enabling their cloud-based shop floor management technology to be proven before full scale roll out.
The package is based on Forcam Force, a manufacturing execution system that provides supervisors, managers and operators with a comprehensive view of factory performance to improve efficiency, reduce waste and boost productivity.
The smart factory starter kit networks up to three machines for data capture, with information processed in real time in the cloud and provides customised, actionable reports on performance also in real-time.
The starter kit includes consultation and basic user training as well as set-up for up to three machines. This will allow machines to stream data to the secure Forcam servers in the cloud for real-time analysis and reporting back to devices on-machine, in the supervisor’s and manager’s offices.
Instantaneous analysis of this big data will allow role-relevant information to be given to operators, supervisors and managers. Forcam will provide full support through the three month trial and give advice on how to scale up and customise the application to optimise performance.
