Smart manufacturing is a broad category of manufacturing that employs computer-integrated manufacturing, high levels of adaptability and rapid design changes, digital information technology, and more flexible technical workforce training. Other goals sometimes include fast changes in production levels based on demand, optimization of the supply chain, efficient production and recyclability. In this concept, as smart factory has interoperable systems, multi-scale dynamic modelling and simulation, intelligent automation, strong cyber security, and networked sensors.
The broad definition of smart manufacturing covers many different technologies. Some of the key technologies in the smart manufacturing movement include big data processing capabilities, industrial connectivity devices and services, and advanced robotics.
Smart manufacturing is a broad approach of manufacturing utilizes computer-integrated manufacturing, Internet-connected machinery to monitor the production process, and digital information technology. The objective of Smart Manufacturing is to optimization of the supply chain and use data analytics to improve production performance.
Smart Manufacturing covers many different technologies such as big data processing, advanced robotics and 3D printing. A smart factory concept has interoperable systems, intelligent automation, strong cyber security, dynamic and highly scale modelling and simulation and networked sensors.
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) plays an important role in the smart manufacturing which serves as a platform for all the technologies and data analytics to be obtained.
