SMART MANUFACTURING IMPROVEMENT AND IMPORTANCE IN INDUSTRY


Technology has risen to greater heights whereby individuals can connect globally compared to the past where people majorly interacted and communicated locally. It’s high time that people should begin appreciating 3d smart manufacturing. By the end of this report, all the readers will have gained knowledge from the smart manufacturing improvement and importance report. The main theme is on the 3d smart manufacturing importance and new improvements. A 3d smart factory is a modular container factory equipped with 3d printing that helps in reliable and flexible production capacities. A 3d printing is a manufacturing process that creates a three-dimensional solid object from a digital model by building layers. Here is a brief explanation of what the manufacturer has to do to print a 3d object. A manufacturer should use a computer-aided design program that gets sliced into layers and the 3d printer starts at the bottom of the design hence building up successful layers until the project is done.


INTRODUCTION:


Smart manufacturing is a group of manufacturing practices that use information communication technologies {ICT} and networked data to govern all the manufacturing operations. In ancient times, raw materials were converted to finished goods but today the ICT plans and regulates the production process. Depending on the rate of the rising new markets where most of the businesses can operate online, the smart market must acquire a new set of self-assembly properties to produce customized products. A new set of frameworks have been proposed to improve the performance of Smart manufacturing :

· Physical conscious

· Intelligence monitoring

· Accuracy

· Operations planning

· Error source estimation

· On machine shape measurement

Smart manufacturing has been said to be smart due to its new technologies and characteristics that make it significant worldwide and important to many citizens. This report will analyze the benefits that smart factory has impacted the society at large and how it is improving to continue benefiting its users.


METHODOLOGY


The method used to acquire this report is information and pieces of evidence from multiple articles and books which summarize all about smart manufacturing. There is so much to cover on smart manufacturing since the world is evolving and new technology is expected. Besides the improvements and importance's covered in this report, a simple informative definition of smart technology covers the whole story. The improvement added to the smart manufacturing systems has enabled many manufactures to gain from them hence recognizing it as significant in the world. To sum up smart technology improvements pairs along with the importance. According to the report, I have identified the characteristics and functions that has improved smart manufacturing systems. Every improvement builds and importance to manufactures and the users.


FINDINGS

  • Sensors.

Sensors are attached to machines to improve visibility by collecting distinct data at specific manufacturing stages. An example os a sensor is the temperature sensors that detect the temperature in a lab and share data through IoT. The shared data is later used to alert the required team workers to review. Industrial IoT. It is the process by which devices are linked by data communication systems to enhance the exchange and use of data between people with the help of their machines. This instrument contains data that collects meaningful data to track and identify better ways of improving the manufacturing process.

  • Cloud computing

Cloud computing stores, processes, and shares data with greater flexibility at a lower cost. The interconnected machines effectively upload large amounts of data to give feedback and make decisions in real-time.


  • Less workforce.

Most of the systems are automated hence enabling workers to attend to their duties effectively without any delay. Data can be easily accessed across all networks hence no additional resources are required.


  • Cost reductions.

When the enterprise systems are connected, manufacturers can identify any waste hence increasing their forecast accuracy in their operations. They clearly understand the demand cycles, inventory levels, delivery status, and supply chain issues hence able to reduce ant cost of unexpected production volume and excessive inventory.


Intelligent technology control.


One of the importance of a smart factory is its intelligent technology control whereby it uses artificial technology to control its mechanisms and provide accurate and reliable data. Intelligent control can be described easily by defining a smart manufacturing performance. Below are descriptions of how they perform.

· They provide the desired products to the customers at a fast speed.

· It easily handles the fluctuations loaded in it and easily adapts to changes in the external environment,

· One can easily predict its performance since it can perform activities as needed.

· When the system has uncertain information, it can still decide about its diagnosis, best performance, and prognosis. Smart manufacturing systems have been improved in a way that they can share information while networking whereby the information appropriateness describes that the information is available, accessible, and understandable when required.


Data analysis.


It analyses large data and an example is real-time data that traditional methods cannot analyses as well as process high data velocity and communicate it in real-time with customers. A smart manufacturing system recognizes patterns when exposed to a new type of data hence doesn’t require human labor or effort to perform its duty. Smart manufacturing technologies automate data, producing more advanced production analysis hence helping its users make wiser detailed information.


Energy-saving


Smart manufacturing systems are prone to safe energy to reuse their products hence reducing the amount of energy required. To explain further the smart manufacturing ability to save energy we pick an example of thermal processing. Thermal processing uses large amounts of energy and water to give products a longer life span. The smart manufacturing company has got healing power on the thermal processing line whereby it monitors, adjusts, and improves technology control, and reduces the amount of energy and water consumed.


CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATIONS


This report analyses and discusses the improvements and importance's of Smart manufacturing that have been testified by most users. Among the cited importance’s includes: Adaptability, flexibility, Fully automated, reusability .digitalization, reliability, proactivity, networkability, and composability. For smart manufacturing to be recognized as important according to the current world several changes must have been impacted to improve its performance.
