Deloitte announced on Monday that the company has launched Smart Factory Fabric, a pre-configured suite of cloud-based Internet of Things (IoT) applications powered by Amazon Web Services, to accelerate smart factory transformations for companies with manufacturing operations.
The Smart Factory Fabric suite of services helps companies improve their operational performance and reduce costs by increasing visibility, optimizing production, improving quality, and minimizing unplanned downtime associated with running a smart factory.
Smart Factory Fabric is designed for companies with manufacturing operations; sample industry sectors include: aerospace and defense; industrial products; pharmaceutical and medical devices; automotive; government; high tech; oil, gas and chemicals; and power and utilities.
"For companies with complex manufacturing operations, implementing a smart factory solution at industrial scale can be daunting, but imperative for those who wish to remain competitive today. That's why we've worked with AWS on a smart factory offering," said Andy Daecher, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and Deloitte Digital IoT U.S. practice lead. "Smart Factory Fabric pairs Deloitte's experience in business strategy, operations, industrial products, and technology engineering with AWS cloud and IoT services, including its global reach, to deliver a scalable, configurable smart factory that's tailored to a manufacturer's unique needs."
