Orchestrating Factory 4.0 with Smart Manufacturing Operations Management
We have gathered the requirements of Industry 4.0 plant management tools to outline the concept of Smart Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) wherein the standard functions of MES/MOM are amplified and complemented by the capabilities offered by digital technologies. Smart MOM approach aims to transform several capability areas such as:
- Real-time integration of production operations with the entire logistics chain
- Allowing changes in products and/or production processes in near real-time
- Continuous improvement of industrial performance in near real-time
- Real-time management of production activities by workshop supervisors
Capgemini’s Smart MOM solutions and architectures are targeted at the challenges faced by industrial customers by connecting industrial objects and people with business processes. They enable to collect raw, technical, and quantitative data in real time and combine them with the contextual information specific to logistics and industrial processes. They also leverage digital technologies to analyse and use diverse data and adapt production schedules and tools in real-time. Finally, as overall operational efficiency improves, factories become intelligent, capable of anticipating, reactive, adaptable, and reconfigurable.
