The new reality for manufacturers is to embrace fast-changing customer demand, reinvented value chains, and sustainable, localized production of increasingly complex products. Staying competitive in such environment is undoubtedly a challenge.
Our response? AI for Operations Intelligence, with a key component our AI-powered Intelligent Operations Platform (IOP). This combines a multi-cloud/hybrid/on-premise tech Platform, and pre-built AI manufacturing solutions or accelerators. We also provide advisory services to establish a digital manufacturing operating model. Reference architectures of the Platform are available for Microsoft Azure, AWS, and Google Cloud, with Capgemini’s modules based on open source technology.
This combination ensures agility to operations, resulting in reduced time-to-market, boosted productivity, and decreased unplanned downtime – all under the promise of safety and uncompromised quality.
Major AI-driven applications include:
- Predictive Maintenance
- Quality Inspection with Deep Learning
- Worker Safety
- Asset Performance Management
- Supplier Performance Monitoring
- Energy Savings
- Adaptive Scheduling, and
- Digital Control Tower.
With Capgemini’s AI-powered Intelligent Operations Platform, we enable closed-loop operational cycles – moving your operations to being repeatable, transparent, optimized, and then autonomous. Our unique, modular approach of defining closed-loop operational cycles allows you to apply AI for gradual improvements of existing manufacturing operations without extensive “rip & replace” IT budgets. This enables manufacturers to scale at competitive cost, and help you cross the chasm of AI Proof-of-Concepts Death Valley.
We can you plan for moving to autonomous manufacturing and to more holistically reimagine operations, achieving flexibility with adaptive production plans, differentiated product designs, service levels – to stay competitive, design-to-production at a push of a button, and run as-a-service business model for clients.
AI solutions and software-driven Intelligent Control Systems, developed and implemented by Capgemini in the Platform, lead to Reimagined Manufacturing, that is adaptive to changes, flexible, and with self-optimized, self-learning capabilities to help you maintain a competitive edge.
With the vision of Autonomous Manufacturing, we leverage machine learning and Computer Vision solutions with cognitive interfaces, and implement AI-powered, closed-loop cycles and software-defined Industrial Control Systems for brownfield or greenfield sites.
Leveraging a combination of Industry 4.0 technologies, such as AI, IoT, AR/VR, Cloud, embedded sensors, and upcoming 5G connectivity, we engineer and deploy AI solutions at scale that implement integrated, closed-loop cycles of Digital Thread: Product Design, Smart Factory, and Customer Service.
We help clients through:
- Autonomous Manufacturing Advisory – advisory service to guide your Digital Transformation Journey and set up an Industry 4.0 Operating Model – people/process/technology
- AI Solutions and Accelerators applied for templatized deployment of monitoring or real-time optimization of multiple closed-loop cycles
- Software-defined Industrial Control Systems.
Our AI-Powered Platform, Solutions, and Advisory services enable gradual transition to autonomous factories, and operationalizes launch and management of differentiated Connected Products and Digital Services that comprise “as-a-service” business model.
