The Smart Factory @ Wichita demonstrates how Industry 4.0 can be a reality for manufacturers. Since opening earlier this year on the Innovation Campus of Wichita State University, the facility has operated a fully functioning manufacturing production line that incorporates cutting edge technologies, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data, cloud and edge applications, robotics and vision solutions (Deloitte). Global ERP leader and founding sponsor, Infor, sees The Smart Factory @ Wichita as a prime example of the state-of-the-art capabilities available to modern manufacturers.
“Industry 4.0 technologies have the potential to redefine the way manufacturers do business in just about every industry,” describes Ed Allen, Infor executive vice president and general manager of discrete manufacturing industries. “Disruption from the COVID-19 pandemic, snarled supply chains, and changing customer preferences have accelerated the need for companies to examine how these smart technologies and approaches can enhance their business” (Infor).
While 86% of manufacturers believe that smart factory solutions will be the main driver in competitiveness in five years, it can be hard to incorporate this new technology effectively (TheSmartFactory). The Smart Factory @ Wichita allows industry leaders to see a working smart factory in action and analyze hands-on use cases.
