Smart Manufacturing also known as “Industrie 4.0” is based on a combination of digital and physical systems that blend communications, IT, data, device, equipment and people. These systems transform traditional plants into smart factories through highly intelligent, connected systems that create a fully digital supply chain. The value of a digital supply chain lies in its volume of rich, correlated data, which allows you to recognize and optimally respond to events in real-time, and provides a treasure trove of data to be mined and analysed to support continuous improvement efforts. And the digital supply chain is more agile than traditional supply chains, able to keep up with the pace of operational change in today’s manufacturing environment.
