InterSystems IRIS Data Platform Enables Digital Transformation

Improving Manufacturing Quality, Efficiency, and Agility

A smart factory combines data from OT systems and real time signals from the shop floor with enterprise IT and analytics systems to enable manufacturers to improve quality, efficiency, respond faster to events, and predict and avoid problems before they occur.

InterSystems IRIS Data Platform and the Smart Factory Application Starter Pack enable manufacturers to “fast track” their smart factory initiatives.

InterSystems IRIS for Manufacturing Key Benefits

High Performance Connectivity

Provides real time, high throughput connectivity to machines (via the OPC-UA standard communication protocol for industrial automation), manufacturing software (e.g. MES systems), ERP systems, data warehouses, business intelligence and analytics software, and more.

Real Time Transparency and KPIs

IT and OT data is integrated, transformed and harmonized into a consistent and unified format to provide a comprehensive real time operational view spanning all relevant systems and data. Critical performance data, as well as calculated Key Performance Indicators (including Overall Equipment Effectiveness) are presented to the relevant personal through dashboards, real time alerts, and other mechanisms.

Predictive Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) algorithms that leverage harmonized data from across the organization enable predictive maintenance, predict manufacturing quality, and identify problems in advance so that they can be prevented from occurring.

Real Time Operational Intelligence

AI and ML algorithms (as well as business rules and other analytics functions) are embedded into real time processes, so that intelligent programmatic actions can be triggered automatically in response to real time signals from the shop floor and other events.

Agility

Business users and analysts can visually navigate the data and optimize processes using a low code graphical interface, within the boundaries that can be set by the organization.

“With InterSystems software, we believe we can reduce scrap at every machine, resulting in immediate improvements in quality, efficiency, and in our financial results.”
