The following is the Industrial 4.0 transformation with dedicated cellular technology From Networked manufacturing recommended by recordtrend.com. And this article belongs to the classification: Industry 4.0, research report.
Ericsson released a new report, “Networked Manufacturing: transforming industry 4.0 with dedicated cellular technology.”. According to the world bank, manufacturing accounts for about 16% of global GDP, making it an important sector of the global economy. To stay ahead in a competitive environment, Ericsson outlines how manufacturers can benefit from high-performance, secure and reliable private cellular networks to accelerate intelligent manufacturing. The current pandemic disrupts production operations and supply logistics, so preparation for Industry 4.0 is more important than ever. Ericsson and industry 4.0 partner hexagon have researched and determined the most relevant and mature intelligent manufacturing examples. According to the real world standards and experts’ opinions, five use cases are drawn to describe how the company can overcome challenges, improve manufacturing efficiency, improve productivity, reduce maintenance, and achieve return on investment. The use cases of deploying private cellular network to realize intelligent manufacturing include:
Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) for real time production chain automation
Cooperative robot (Cobot) can improve operation efficiency
Augmented reality (AR) is used for effective quality checking
Asset condition monitoring to improve uptime
Digital twin can optimize operation
Ericsson applied a benchmark factory to analyze these use cases: a medium-sized auto supplier in Western Europe, with annual revenue of US $100 million, about 500 employees and gross profit of 10%. The report estimates that the annual steady-state net worth of the benchmark plant will reach $6 million in the fifth year. All five use cases will be cost recovered in three to five years, and if deployed together, full return on investment can be achieved in just two years.
The report also describes the major challenges that manufacturers have to overcome to remain competitive: declining productivity and growth, supply chain disruption, recruiting the right people, and the burden of legacy machines and assets. Maintaining and reallocating wired fixed assets is also expensive. As manufacturers upgrade their infrastructure, the need for data security and prevention of network attacks has become a top priority. In order to meet the customer’s expectations of rapid customization, the factory must be very flexible so that it can quickly adjust production. Manufacturers increasingly see the value of private cellular networks, making their businesses more agile and competitive, and supporting the transition to industry 4.0 by connecting operational and quality data.
