What Is Smart Manufacturing?

Smart manufacturing is the combination of software and hardware that provides greater visibility into operations and production for manufacturing businesses. It isn’t any one given piece of technology, it’s the end result of implementing a digital innovation strategy that has upgraded every aspect of your business to be “smart” rather than analog.

Organizations that enjoy the benefits of smart manufacturing may have solutions like:

  • An enterprise resource planning (ERP) system
  • Robotic process automation (RPA)
  • Business process automation
  • Business intelligence (BI)
  • Sensors and other smart shop floor hardware
