Ensuring reliability and security of data feeds for Glanbia
Ensuring reliability and security of data feeds for Glanbia
Core to Glanbia’s manufacturing operations is the need to guarantee the reliability and security of data feeds from its in-plant manufacturing execution systems (MES) to its field force.
IIC Industrial Digital Thread (IDT) Testbed
IIC Industrial Digital Thread (IDT) Testbed
Field engineers and service teams often lack data and digital insights needed to assess, troubleshoot, and determine work scope for the large industrial assets in performing corrective and preventative maintenance activities. QA engineers many times need to understand why a particular problem in the part is happening recurrently or why parts from suppliers don’t stack up well in the assemblies due to mismatch. The root cause is usually hidden in design, manufacturing processes, supply chain logistics or production planning. But without the right data and digital insights, it's hard to pinpoint. GOAL To collect information in the design, manufacturing, service, supply-chain setup and provide access to and intelligent analytics for industrial manufacturing and performance data, to identify the root cause easier. Such insights can improve not only service and owner/operator productivity, but also provide critical feedback to the design engineering and manufacturing operations teams for continuous improvement.
Maximizing Error-proofing in Manufacturing with MES/MOM Controlled Assembly Tools
Maximizing Error-proofing in Manufacturing with MES/MOM Controlled Assembly Tools
This document summarizes the error-proofing solution a leading heavy machinery manufacturer implemented and standardized on in order to greatly reduce product defects due to improperly fastened bolts in transmission systems. Electric assembly tools called nutrunners are used by assembly line workers to fasten bolts to a predetermined torque measurement. Their decision to implement a manufacturing execution system (MES) or manufacturing operations management (MOM) software to both ‘monitor’ and ‘control’ all aspects of the assembly tools and line worker processes yielded unprecedented results by reducing bolted joint failures and Warranty claims by 94%.

Manufacturing USA (National Network for Manufacturing Innovation)
The National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI) provides a manufacturing research infrastructure where U.S. industry and academia collaborate to solve industry-relevant problems. The NNMI is a network of Institutes for Manufacturing Innovation that each has a unique focus, but a common goal to create, showcase, and deploy new capabilities and new manufacturing processes.
Smart Manufacturing Leadership Coalition (SMLC)
Smart Manufacturing Leadership Coalition (SMLC)
SMLC is building the nation’s first Open Smart Manufacturing Platform for collaborative industrial-networked information applications through at-scale demonstrations. SMLC envisions a 21st century SM enterprise (from suppliers, OEMs, and companies to supply chains) that is fully integrated, knowledge-enabled, and model rich. Such visibility across the enterprise (internal and external) would radically improve the ability to inform decisions and drive action. The Open Smart Manufacturing Platform and Marketplace enables manufacturing companies of all sizes to gain easy, affordable access to modeling and analytical technologies that can be tailored to meet cross-industry business-case objectives without having to retrofit existing systems.The concept of an open architecture enables the ability to access and contribute to a marketplace of industrial applications, including commercial and open-source technologies. Manufacturers will have access to endless possibilities through connecting new and existing architectures, talent and solutions. Similarly, solution providers, software vendors and entrepreneurs will have access to a broader manufacturing community and will be given a huge opportunity to innovate further.

Manufacturing System Automation
Manufacturing System Automation
An automated manufacturing system is the total integration of software and machinery used to create a system that performs manufacturing processes autonomously through computer programming.Without automated manufacturing systems, factory output would be vastly reduced, production would be very time consuming, working conditions would be less safe and quality control would be extremely difficult. Employees would need to work twice as hard to achieve in a day what they can now achieve in an hour with automated industrial systems. 
Industrial Digital Thread
Industrial Digital Thread
The digital thread refers to the communication framework that allows a connected data flow and integrated view of the asset’s data throughout its lifecycle across traditionally siloed functional perspectives. The digital thread concept raises the bar for delivering “the right information to the right place at the right time.”The Industrial Digital Thread (IDT) testbed drives efficiency, speed, and flexibility through digitization and automation of manufacturing processes and procedures. It collects information in the design, manufacturing, service and supply-chain setup, and provides access to intelligent analytics for industrial manufacturing and performance data.The Digital Thread integrates design, engineering, manufacturing, and MRO (maintenance, repair, and overhaul) systems, establishing a seamless flow of information. This type of integration employs data and analytics across the complete product life cycle, optimizing efficiency, from design to manufacturing, operations, and maintenance to service in a closed loop.
