Case Studies and Outlook for Linked Factories

Utilization of AI in the Manufacturing Sector

Highlight

Utilization of the IoT is steadily advancing in the manufacturing sector. In response to this trend, Hitachi is working to provide new industry solutions based on the symbiotic autonomous decentralization concept for achieving overall optimization of activities and for creating new business by linking various systems and stakeholders together. To make new industry solutions a reality, it will be necessary to have on-site sensing, to provide an infrastructure for collecting and archiving big data, to analyze and plan countermeasures, and to give feedback to sites. This article describes advanced on-site sensing, integrated analysis of a variety of on-site data for analyzing and planning countermeasures, and the utilization of AI technology for them.
