Be proactive, not reactive with Industry 4.0

Build a smart factory with AI and IoT. Increase operational visibility, predict equipment failure and process-related loss and prescribe corrective actions.

1 tb

of production data is created daily by the average factory, but

more than 99 percent

of that data isn’t being analyzed by manufacturers.*

Maximize operational efficiency across assets

One hour of downtime can cost you over $100,000. Shift from reactive to predictive maintenance using artificial intelligence and industrial IoT. See how Watson IoT™ can help you achieve the most uptime.

Maximize operational efficiency across processes

Production sensors (IIOT) monitor line performance, so you know when to intervene to achieve maximum daily throughput. Hear how Flex is using Watson IoT to maximize throughput.

Improve quality and reduce scrap and rework

Watson IoT™ predictive modeling makes it easier to optimize time and boost productivity. Watch how one automaker improved product quality. To learn more about quality in manufacturing, view the webinar.
