Smart Factory Case Study

How to Fill the Gap in the Proficiency of Workers? Iwate Murata Manufacturing Edition (Part 1)

We introduce here the process when promoting the conversion of a regular factory into a smart factory and the keys to promoting that. We do that based on the example of Iwate Murata Manufacturing, which has eliminated the gap in the proficiency of workers to achieve task standardization and productivity improvement through conversion into a smart factory.

Smart Factories: Giving Form to Digital Transformation in the Manufacturing Industry

Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) Have Evolved into Smart Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) and Are Improving the Efficiency of Operations in Factories

We give an explanation here about new transportation methods that have evolved with the progress of AI and IoT that are being utilized in smart factories. In addition to the work time of each process, the transportation of works in progress between processes and the replenishment of parts and materials have a major impact on improving productivity overall in lines that perform variable-mix variable-lot production. The use of smart AMRs has expanded in place of AGVs and other conventional transportation means.

Smart Factories: Giving Form to Digital Transformation in the Manufacturing Industry

What Is the Ideal Cell Production System Line that Responds Flexibly and Promptly to Variable-mix Variable-lot Production?

We give an explanation here about the optimization of variable-mix variable-lot production – a production structure that responds in a timely manner to the consumer market where diversification is progressing and trends are changing drastically. The application of IoT and smart robots is spreading to enhance the productivity of cell production system lines. Furthermore, expectations are also building for the utilization of AI and other technologies that predict the market environment and factory operating conditions.
