WHAT IS YOUR KEY MANUFACTURING CHALLENGE?

Deploy FactoryWorxTM AI at Your Pace

Today adopting AI is not an optional choice. It is a matter of competitive urgency. The next five years will see operations without AI left behind. The window of opportunity is still open. With FactoryWorxTM AI you have a choice: to go full throttle to a full AI powered Industry 4.0 transformation or take a staged roll out.

 

With either option adopting FactoryWorxTM AI starts with a Project Pilot and follows logical steps to fully embed and leverage AI development, learning and the necessary organisational transformation.

 

If you are already using FactoryWorxTM MES, your operations are already connected. You already have the infrastructure and are collecting vital data. You can start with AI and move fast. It’s just a question of scaling the process.
