Whitepaper: Smart technologies impacting industrial market dynamicsJuly 27, 2016
Smart manufacturing is the next industrial revolution. These terms embrace a multitude of technologies and ideas, including the industrial internet of things, cyber-security, big data, pervasive sensing, industrial communications, ‘the cloud’ and operator mobility. Industry has been discussing and experimenting with some of these topics for a number of years, with the dream of intelligent systems, all-encompassing and uninhibited communication, and a fully integrated value chain. This isn’t suddenly going to happen tomorrow so what do we, the industry, need to do to accelerate time to market, reduce costs, raise quality, lower energy consumption and increase customization?
The Smart Manufacturing Intelligence Service - Annual will provide news, commentary and analyst insight to ensure that you can easily keep abreast of developments as they happen. The service will be complemented by a number of short reports, providing additional detail and insight to mobility, the cloud and the internet of things, and how each will help to drive the factory of the future. Learn about the risks of adopting new technologies that enable smart manufacturing to be a reality and understand the steps necessary to create a fully smart operation.
Major components of this service include:
1) Quarterly Magazine Style Reports
2) Analyst Monthly Insights
3) Factory of the Future Database
4) "Factory of the Future" Report Series (described below)
