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.

What Is the First Step to Converting a Regular Factory into a Smart Factory? Komoro Murata Manufacturing (Part 2)

In Part 2 of this article, we introduce initiatives on predictive maintenance and visualization of the equipment operating situation derived from realizations obtained in the EMS. We also look at the clues to cultivating an awareness to make improvements in the manufacturing site that forms the key to converting a regular factory into a smart factory.

Considering Air Quality to Reduce the Risk of COVID Infection (Part 1)—Measuring CO2 Concentration to Visualize Air Quality and Ensure Proper Ventilation

For society to recover and progress in this post-pandemic era, we need to reduce the risk of infection at schools, offices, and other places where people gather. To achieve this, we must avoid the three Cs: closed spaces, crowded places, and close-contact settings. Toward that end, ventilation is especially important for preventing airborne infections. A new method of discerning and announcing the proper timing for ventilation is gaining attention: using CO2 sensors to visualize air quality.

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

CPS: A Key Technology for Realizing Autonomous Smart Factories

A cyber-physical system (CPS), which is the core information system of future factories aiming to be smart factories, is built by concentrating together IoT, AI, big data analysis, industrial networks, and other advanced information technologies. It is an information system occupying the core in the implementation of digital transformation (DX) in the manufacturing industry that draws a clear distinction with mere process automation by conventional factory automation (FA).

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

From the Automation of Processes to Digital Transformation in the Manufacturing Industry

We give an explanation here about digital transformation (DX) in the manufacturing industry – business reform that utilizes digital technology in the manufacturing industry. The approach to business reform is gradually becoming more sophisticated with visualization, optimization, automation, and autonomy in DX in the manufacturing industry. The scope of the application of that is also expanding to systems, factories, companies, and supply chains.
