Are your manufacturing facilities ready for the Fourth Industrial Revolution?

Conventional manufacturing is undergoing a radical transformation. Important driving factors such as ubiquitous, cheap connectivity and instrumentation from machines on the shop floor to the finished product, are creating a surge in the amount of data from all sources.

Watson IoT helps you better understand the human element in your data to make real-time, contextually-driven decisions that pave the way for entirely new manufacturing models in factories.

With Watson IoT, you can:

Make manufacturing assets and equipment more intelligent to improve reliability and reduce downtime.

Use cognitive analytics to deliver closed-loop, data-driven process improvements that enhance quality and productivity.

Optimize production resources by keeping production line workers safe, enhancing the expertise of your entire workforce and minimizing energy consumption.
