Connected factories use smart manufacturing technology to operate day-to-day processes seamlessly. Hence, a well-integrated Smart Manufacturing-as-a-Service strategy will establish connections between the critical points to ensure simplified operations and value-add outcomes to the overall business with flexibility and agility.
Three-Pronged Approach to Operationalizing Your SMaaS Strategy
Digital Performance Twins
Digital twin drives manufacturing industry with the ongoing digital transformation. The concept of a digital twin technology is not something new. It has been in trend for quite some time now. It involves the consolidation of virtual engineering models with the product or equipment in an environment that takes care of product optimization of the as-designed and as-built products.
Manufacturers can bring down the time and associated cost of assembling, installing, and validating factory production systems using the concept of digital twins.

Digital performance twins monitor the product quality, asset health, and process status at every production stage. They connect the performance KPIs with product quality status, asset conditions, and process conditions to derive manufacturing intelligence and insights for accurate decisions and precise actions. This helps prevent and recover from any process deviation and disruptions.
The manufacturing intelligence and insights are projected over production processes, inventory, quality, maintenance for performance optimization through dynamic work plans and working instructions.
With digital performance twins, the production processes are stabilized to reduce the variability, further improving the waste such as scrap, rework that increases the process efficiency and productivity.
