Manufacturing Sector

Flexible and secure IT services that keep your multiple offices and workspaces going, day and night.

Digital transformation is disrupting the manufacturing sector. Tagged as Industry 4.0, or the fourth industrial revolution, it encompasses automation and data-centric processes and systems including cloud computing, the industrial internet of things (IIoT), robotics, artificial intelligence and machine learning.

The latest evolution of Industry 4.0 is the smart factory; a digitised production facility that uses smart manufacturing based on integrated intelligent machines, robots, sensors, analytics, autonomous systems, self-optimisation and other digital techniques. It is highly efficient, reproducible, scalable, flexible and rapidly configurable to produce many different items in a day using the same machinery.

Manufacturing digital transformation market

The digital transformation market is projected to reach $3,294 billion in 2025, growing at a CAGR of 22.7% from 2019 to 2025. This growth has mainly been attributed to the increasing adoption of AI & robotics in manufacturing industries, as well as other technological advancements within the sector. As a result, more manufacturing firms see the need to move forward to remain competitive and secure growth.

Different organisations are at different stages in the digital transformation process. However, there is no doubt that it is impacting on all aspects of the process, including rapid prototyping, research and development, production, test and performance analysis.

Multiple offices, workplaces, suppliers and markets

Manufacturing operations are highly complex. Today many manufacturers are critically dependent on just-in-time delivery and manufacturing models which require close collaboration between all aspects of the supply, production and distribution network. Components may be manufactured in one country, and they must be transported to be assembled in another.

Efficient operation of such complex systems can only be driven by efficient IT.

Supply chain digitisation

Digitising your supply chain can deliver considerable benefits in terms of speed and cost. With end to end transparency, every link in the chain has access to all the data so that strategic decisions can be made faster and more efficiently.

The edge

Manufacturing is transforming from centralised computing to on-site devices. The advantages include lower latency, improved security, flexibility, and local decision making and control taking advantage of the Industrial Internet of Things.

Asset performance management

Sharing assets amongst multiple tasks avoids excessive redundancy, capital expenditure and maintenance costs. The virtualisation of physical assets, such as servers is transforming the factory floor.

Cloud computing

Cloud computing lends itself to manufacturing, providing anywhere, anytime access to the data and services you need to keep operations running smoothly. It also facilitates the research, design and development of new products, powering innovation, reducing product development costs and speeding up the time to market.

Machine learning and data analytics

Machine learning and data analytics are playing an increasingly important role in manufacturing from assembly and analysis of manufacturing data for optimisation of production processes through to autonomous and semi-autonomous production.
