Baker Hughes, a major oil field services company, wanted greater visibility into its manufacturing processes as well as the ability to manage production in real time. With 300 machines in seven plants, equipment issues often negatively affected manufacturing processes before the problem was noticed. And when an issue was detected, it was time-consuming to solve and resulted in lost productivity.

Solution – Deploying the smart factory

With its set of Intelligent Industry data centric and collaborative ways of designing, engineering, manufacturing and supporting products, assets and services, Capgemini together with Intel and AWS technology helped create the smart factory for Baker Hughes utilizing Capgemini’s unique, agile methodology to connect Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) into a single solution.

The solution combines capabilities from Capgemini’s Intelligent Asset Monitoring and Predictive Asset Maintenance with Edge Compute solutions. Powered by innovative edge technology including Intel® IoT Gateways and Intel® NUCs, and running on Capgemini’s Internet of Things (XIoT) platform developed in collaboration with Intel and deployed on Amazon Web Services (AWS), the solution provides operators and engineers with a new level of insight into machine health and real-time control of production processes. Through monitoring and manufacturing analytics, the solution provides powerful data visualization capabilities and empowers data-driven decision making.
