Maximize factory productivity

A single hour of downtime can cost you over $100,000.¹ Using cognitive technologies ─ a combination of artificial intelligence (AI), Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) data, advanced analytics and more ─ you can extract insights from your data to move from reactive to predictive maintenance, pinpoint improvements, reduce waste and increase yield.

See how IBM Maximo can help you achieve the most uptime and reliability.

Improve product quality

Fine-tuning quality management can prevent costly rework. One of the world's largest automakers uses IBM's predictive modeling tools to optimize manufacturing processes and turn data into real results — 25% increase in productivity, 50% reduction in optimization implementation, and minimized waste. Watch the video to see how. Then take the next step and register for the ebook for a deep dive into how IBM can improve quality in your operation.
