IBM has a unique position in the marketplace, with cognitive platforms and services, industry-specific offerings and expert consulting to support electronics companies.
To understand how the electronics industry is applying cognitive computing to manufacturing, the IBM Institute for Business Value surveyed 140 electronics executives around the world and across all industry subsectors. We found that a core group of early adopters has kicked off a new generation of production success with cognitive manufacturing and show greater returns on investment (ROI) with increased productivity. Our analysis answers some important questions.
he pursuits to reduce costs and avoid unplanned downtime remain primary operational goals in industrial plants. A convergence of factors has created an opportunity for industrial organizations such as manufacturing, oil and gas, chemicals and water treatment companies to aggressively pursue both. Although the pace of investment can be relatively slow in industrial automation (IA), technological advances, economic trends and market pressures have created an environment in which plants are compelled to modernize operational technology (OT) in order to ensure maximum efficiency and minimum process interruptions.
Simply put, OT is getting old. The industrial sector is heavily capital-intensive and traditionally utilizes equipment with long lifecycles.
Organizations with such outdated automation systems are in dire need of OT modernization to keep up with the pace of change, customer demands and business priorities, and reduce the risk of critical failures and costly downtime. Download th
