Factories are going through a profound transformation by riding the waves of advances in automation, connectivity and supply chain integration. The goal, however, for a factory remains the same: to manufacture the right product at the right time with the highest possible quality level at the lowest cost.

Connected Factories play a central and synchronized role in global and local supply chains. Between the 4 walls of the factory, the focus is on reducing lot sizes. lead times, waste and costs, while continuously improving quality and safety. As part of the overall supply chain, the focus of a connected factory is to reduce order lead times, fulfill demand, making the right products at the right time at high quality and be flexible enough to adapt to changing market and customer demand.
