2018 IIC Conference - Presentations

July 26, 2016

Monday, 9/12

3:15 to 4:10 p.m. / W-194-A

Session Topic: Cloud Based Manufacturing and In-Machining Process Quality Control and Feedback

Waste exists along the value chain, mainly in the form of poor manufacturability, inefficient processes, and low machine utilization. This is creating significant opportunities to reduce capital intensity and operating expenses in manufacturing operations.

The concept of smart factories opens tremendous possibilities for next-generation, intelligent shop-floor efficiency. Connectivity, sensor-based manufacturing systems, and industrial robots aim to be human-centric and support efficient decision making in all stages of manufacturing.

Virtual factories integrating cyber physical systems (CPS) and information and communication technology (ICT) optimize efficiency in networked, collaborative value chains. A cloud-based manufacturing environment supports optimized asset tracking and asset management, autonomous control, and logistics. This will enable different stake holders of manufacturing entities to monitor and diagnose performance and secure parts quality.

This presentation demonstrates industrial cases which utilize the above technologies to take a comprehensive approach of visualizing, analyzing, and optimizing manufacturing processes, root cause effects, and process feedback to improve final parts dimension accuracy, quality, and total cost.
