Digital Assistant & Industrial IoT at the Service of Manufacturing Optimization Advances in technology allows today to utilize AI to collect IIoT-based data, analyze data trends, raise alerts and recommend – or even independently take – optimal actions, all while maintaining full genealogical database, weaving a complete ‘digital thread’ from the raw material stage to the end-product, to guarantee highest levels of quality and quality control.
Amir Ben-Assa, Chief Marketing Officer, Plataine
AI algorithms allow manufacturers the eminent ability to use an intelligent ‘digital assistant’ offering shop-floor staff to take optimized decisions in real-time and significantly improve response time. These capabilities directly enhance manufacturers’ ability to apply advanced optimization techniques, follow best practices and meet strict OEMs’ quality, quality-control, cost-reduction and delivery requirements, while remaining profitable and competitive.
