Abstract: Smart Factory

The main goal of our project is to improve the efficiency of the manufacturing process and end results of the products by gathering and processing data quickly and efficiently. Smart manufacturing is able to rapidly adapt to changing circumstances. When creating a smart factory, the most important step is data collection. After data is collected it needs to be analyzed and visualized. The data analysis is done by the engineers, and can be processed within a shorter period of time alongside an easy-to-understand visualization. This is of interest to Jabil because, it is the next step to a smart factory assembly line. This can save a lot of time for engineers by being able to identify that there are issues within the assembly line, and knowing what exactly are those issues by looking at the visualized data and stop production before more faulty products are produced.
