Today’s Industrial manufacturing environments are increasingly characterized by connected, intelligent manufacturing through smart factories rather than conventional industrial production. Even though most manufacturing companies, today, use ERP software to its fullest capacity; they aren’t able to increase the overall efficiency of the process due to the gap between the machines and the ERP systems. This gap is being filled by revolutionary IoT technology. It will not only make the management of manufacturing more effective but the work itself smarter. Smart factory solutions demand the complete eradication of offline factory operations thus improving the visibility in manufacturing to the point where each unit of production can be seen at each step in the production process. This is possible only if we let go of the traditional manual entered data and focus on collecting the real-time production data by making it possible for the machines to directly talk to the ERP software. Factories and plants that are connected to the Internet /intranet are more efficient, productive, and smarter than their non-connected counterparts.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) pledges elevation in smart manufacturing, which meets the revolution for smart factories. IoT software platforms used in smart factories such as Faststream Technologies generate intelligent and smart manufacturing processes that optimize industrial automation. Faststream Technologies creates smart factory technology in Industry 4.0-based manufacturing.
For alternation of conventional automation process to a more open, connected, and resilient system Smart Factory technology has been incorporated. Executing system-wide physical, operational, and human assets entitles factories to greater management of the whole production scenery with interconnected equipment, operations, facilities, and also for the prediction of real-time adjustments to changes. Which causes the result to proliferate production efficiency and reduce downtime.
IoT solutions are important to generate Smart Factory Solutions. Different Connected IoT devices like sensors and cameras for machine vision are essential for a manufacturing facility to check the status, gather data, analyze it, and use insights to optimize operations. In addition to data-collecting devices, however, the software compiles IoT data and allows users to monitor and control all aspects of automated production. Our Software Platform delivers IoT smart factory solutions to cover the procedure for expanded productivity and increased direction in the era of Industry 4.0.
We collect and store hardware-independent data from your appliances, operations, and people. You can attach all existing devices from PLCs to business management systems or cloud applications with the 100 native communication protocols.
Visualization and Control:
The real-time operational data in a customizable interface, permitting for rising awareness and systematic supervision over processes locally and remotely has been displayed by Faststream Technologies.
Analytics And Reporting:
We operate advanced algorithms, and connect your real-time data with machine learning applications, as well as distributed intelligence and networking to make calculations and provide predictions and estimates.
Engineering and Maintenance
Faststream comes with a set of powerful sorcerers and easy-to-use tools. As a result, you can design and prolong your projects without needing programming skills. Faststream Technologies ensures high productivity for your engineering team with the open application programming interfaces (API) and the possibility to engineer mixed version environments due to its backward compatibility.
Using smart factory technology based on Faststream Technologies you can enhance these elements in food and beverage, pharmaceutical, cement, metal, automotive, and other manufacturing industries.
Smart factory technology and IoT devices have extensive indications for efficiency, product quality, and safety. IoT technology can empower elements of smart manufacturing such as:
HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL INTEGRATION
The smart factory solutions featuring Faststream Technologies enable horizontal integration among machines and vertical integration across your enterprise. You can connect machines, systems, and resources, as well as share data from the sensor to enterprise resource planning (ERP). The result is a smart factory that eliminates knowledge silos in the company and streamlines communication across machines and facilities.
In the production industry maintenance plays a major role, so if a system breaks down, it can lead to exorbitant downtime and delays in order fulfillment. By collecting data in real-time about connected machinery, Faststream predicts when you should service a machine or switch a component to avoid downtime.
ENERGY DATA MANAGEMENT
Minimizing energy consumption means cost savings for the business and reducing the consumption of valuable resources for the environment. The factories of the future prioritize sustainability and energy efficiency. As an energy data management system (EDMS), we provide a company-wide profile of consumption data from your machines and processes, which empowers you to manage your users effectively on a long-term basis.
