What is Smart Manufacturing?

Smart Manufacturing entails creation of a system that is fully-integrated that responds in real time to meet changing demands and conditions in the factory, in the supply network, and in customer needs. In simplified term, it integrates data and information from multiple open sources, vendor applications and products that can be composed to form new solutions. It can be applied to a single machine line, an entire factory or across a network of suppliers and customers. In fact, linking and integrating among and across all of these in synchronized time is possible.

It is being predicted as the driver for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. And, as with many other advances throughout recent years, it all has to do with technology connectivity, unprecedented access and contextualization of data.
