Enabling Smart Operations for Manufacturing

  • Forces shaping manufacturing will drive unprecedented change in manufacturing facilities across the world over the next five years.
  • There are 3 keys to building and supporting the factory of the future: connecting real-time operational data together with business data bridging the IT/OT divide, using AI and advanced analytics to deliver insights and recommendations, and enabling automation to turn insights into action across supply chain and manufacturing execution.
  • In the workshop, we will introduce Oracle Smart Operations for Manufacturing, which combines data from connected equipment, the workforce, and the supply chain digital thread to drive real-time visibility to operations with business context, empowering workstation operators and factory leaders.
  • Learn how Oracle Smart Operations can deliver real-time recommendations, autonomously adjust production, and execute on high value manufacturing decisions to increase process efficiency, product quality, and factory output.
