Be proactive, not reactive with Industry 4.0

Build a smart factory with AI and IoT. Production data insights can increase visibility into operations, 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.

Maximize operational efficiency across processes

Production sensors (IIOT) monitor line performance, so you know when to intervene to achieve maximum daily throughput.

Improve quality and reduce scrap and rework

One of the world’s largest automakers uses Watson IoT™ to measure production variables, detect defects and analyze root cause. Now, waste is down, productivity is up 25% and optimization time has been reduced from 3 days to 2 hours.

IBM knows how to bring together OT and IT to digitally transform your business

Ball bearings with built-in intelligence and sensory capabilities interconnect to create virtual models of entire industrial systems.
