Production Line Monitoring Solution for industrial automation and smart manufacturing of the future

Softweb Smart Factory is an IoT-powered solution that enables manufacturers to connect multiple production lines and machines, acquire data from several disparate sources, and develop capabilities like remote monitoring, edge analytics, and predictive analytics.

Out adoptable and user-friendly industrial automation solution empowers you to monitor everything on the shop floor from a centralized, automated dashboard. It not only brings higher operational intelligence but also helps you take informed decisions for increased efficiency and profit.

Our Production Line Monitoring Solution helps you overcome most common challenges faced by manufacturers today, including-

  • Legacy industrial control systems that are prone to cyber threats
  • Lack of real-time data and disparate data systems
  • Keeping abreast of regulations and managing compliance
  • Product development and innovation
  • Implementing procedures that allow faster time to market
  • Environmental concerns and considerations
  • Balancing maintenance with throughput
  • Ensure customer satisfactions
Smart Industry 4.0

Highlights and Core Features

Edge analytics for your production line

If we consider a smart production line, it will comprise of several edge devices with smart sensors attached to them. These devices will then be responsible for collecting data in real-time and utilize that data to derive analysis that can help in optimizing asset productivity, rerouting overload, and preventing machine downtime. This significantly reduces the time of detecting security risks, detecting anomalies and improve the overall efficiency of the entire production line while monitoring production quality in real-time.

Steps to implement Softweb Smart Factory solution

1

Site Assessment

  • Auditing production capability and performance of a site
  • Assess policies, procedures, and records to evaluate quality management
  • Analyze the site infrastructure
  • Ensure the site meets the required environment standards
2

Data Point Analysis and Hardware Kit Finalization

  • Finalize the type of hardware and sensors required for data acquisition
  • Data from all of the data sources will be sustained in a digital storage
  • Analyze the data and get data-informed answers to the business questions
  • Conceptualize and consult on how to maximize the use of the data in the current business environment
3

Data Acquisition and Analysis

  • Collect data from the existing systems or any third party systems
  • Collected data will be anonymized/masked to hide critical/private information
  • Verify if the data is sufficient and valid for further processing
  • Study the data and try to identify business values required to create intelligence
4

Data Visualization

  • Convert facts and analysis reports into visuals
  • Use of sophisticated data visualization tools to represent the outcome in the best manner
  • Leverage visualization tools such as Tableau, D3.js, Logi Analytics, and Power BI

FAQs

Most Commonly Asked Questions Regarding Smart Factory

How long would it take to implement the Smart Factory Solution?

It depends on the readiness of your infrastructure and the business use case. However, if you are already collecting and storing data in any way, it would not take much time for set up and installation. In case you have any specific customization requirements for dashboard and reports, then it may affect the timeline.

I am using old machines in the factory. Can I use this IoT solution in my manufacturing unit?

Yes, of course. We just need to assess your infrastructure and identify data points so that our technical team can guide you further. We will then integrate your current machines and help you make sense of your data.

During the assessment, our technical team will identify machines which are smart, semi-smart, and dumb. Smart machines can be connected directly to the cloud. Semi-smart machines can provide a few data points directly to cloud and require external sensors/actuators in order to send any other data points. Dumb devices cannot provide any data and require external sensors/actuators to connect and send particular data to the cloud.

My machines or assets are not connected to the Internet. Can this service still be applied on them?

Yes. Our engineers will visit your facility to get a full understanding of your infrastructure and identify the solution on how to make your machines or assets IoT enabled. In case of totally dumb devices, we can always set up an internet connection using external sensors and actuators.

We are already storing our data using a third-party cloud storage provider. Can we implement this solution?

Yes, Smart Factory can be implemented with the existing third-party cloud service provider. In this scenario, solution will collect the data from the third-party cloud storage and store it to IoT cloud. The solution will then use the data from the IoT cloud only.

Will my data be secured in the cloud?

The security of your data is paramount to us. All communication is secured with SSL and TLS protocols to ensure secured device management and connectivity management. Solution uses OAuth2 authentication which will enable third-party applications to access the user accounts on an HTTP service.

What is the pricing model? How much does it take to implement Smart Factory?

It depends upon the use case. To discuss further, please contact at info@softwebsolutions.com

I have couple of factories situated at different locations. Is it possible to monitor all of them from a single solution?

Yes. The solution allows user to add multiple factories situated at different locations. Each factory can be divided into particular floors, production lines, stages/processes. Users can always view the generic dashboard along with the combined KPI values or the individual KPI values for each factory. We can customize the dashboard/reports as per your requirements.
