The Factories of the Future (FOF) are the Connected Factories which have successfully implemented the IR 4.0 and Smart Manufacturing by optimizing the available digital and robotics with human interface technologies. This will require the adoption and implementation of IoT (Internet of Things), Cyber-Physical Production, Additive Manufacturing, Advanced Data Analytics, Digital Infrastructure and the human element of Cross-Domain Skills. Achieving the status of FOF is not an option but a survival requirement for any industries and manufacturing operations.
A strong foundation is a prerequisite to achieve the status of readiness for the FOF and IR4.0 implementation. Capable and predictable machines and processes are critical, employees who are continuously improving internal processes and learning new ideas with the ability to quickly adopt and implement new and better methods. These are extremely important for the sustainable success of the FOF. To achieve the status FOF, the companies must mature in Lean Manufacturing and operationalized as an organizational culture and then implement the Smart Manufacturing methodologies.
Lean Manufacturing + Smart Manufacturing = Factories of the Future
