Cognitive Factory Solution

About the Solution Overview

We have joined with Hirata Corporation to provide the Cognitive Factory solution to help manufacturing companies transition to smart factories and reform manufacturing processes.

Information communication technologies (ICT), such as network infrastructure, cloud services, and security protocols, are utilized in the digital transformation of manufacturing plants. IoT and AI technologies are also the keys to process reform via the automation and optimization of production control.
