Aerospace and Defense Solutions
Day-to-day, aerospace or defense manufacturers need to coordinate hugely expensive assets and manage operations that involve multiple, complex processes. They often use multiple systems to help them do this, but still have very little real-time visibility of their operations. This lack of visibility makes optimizing processes and reducing costs a daily challenge and aerospace and defense manufacturers are facing pressure from every angle.
How does Smart Factory work?
Every step in the assembly process presents an opportunity; a chance to add value, cut time, or reduce risks. Smart Factory accurately pinpoints and identifies your assets and correlates this information with data from your existing plant systems and devices. Based on this real-time data, the system lets you know exactly what’s going on in your aerospace assembly operation.
Smart Factory automates or enhances quality control procedures and makes the insights it generates available for you to exploit. With it, you can drive widespread improvements to your aerospace production operation.
Smart Factory is helping companies worldwide to improve their profitability and meet the most stringent quality control requirements.
