A “How to” Guide for integrating Digital Manufacturing & Industry 4.0 into your shop floor

Pune, India 16 March 2018:- Outlook Business reported on how Entrib’s flagship product – ShopWorx has managed to integrate Industry 4.0 with Digital Manufacturing into the Discrete Manufacturing (Plastics, Press Metals, Automotive) shop floors.

Doing so, it has proved its worth by providing a 4% raise of their Plant’s availability & 30% increase in productivity in this sector.

ShopWorx aims to digitally transform shop floors while providing a smarter way of manufacturing. By providing data monitoring & analytics solutions in Real -Time, it provides features such as:-

• Production Monitoring,
• Utility Consumption Monitoring (Water, Air, Gas, Electricity, Steam),
• Assembly Line Traceability,
• Paint Shop Process & Health Monitoring &
• Maintenance System (Scheduling & Reporting)

The uniqueness of ShopWorx comes with its approach towards developing client-centric, fully customizable & machine agnostic solutions. On asking Kiran Nataraj (CEO) for further elaboration, following were his comments:

“All of ShopWorx developers are motivated to travel to our client’s plants and gained insights of their shop floor. This not only provides a realistic view towards solving key problems through their solutions but encourages them to think innovatively.

For Instance, a developer spent a week figuring out why one of our apps was not being used. He created a QR code-based mobile app that solved key issues on the shop floor avoiding expensive RFID based scanners and providing an innovative solution that encourages usage of mobile phones on the shop floor.”

Entrib Analytics takes a customer-first approach and has integrated more than 1500 machines (Injection & Blow Molding machine, Extrusion machines & Assembly Lines to name a few) to ShopWorx while monitoring and analyzed more than 1 billion products.

“We have added 20+ customers for this year and had a 300% growth in revenue” added Kiran Nataraj.

Digitizing Manufacturing Shop Floors in Asia while driving their Production Efficiency

a&s Asia, March 2018:- a&s Asia magazine covered Kiran Natraj’s (CEO, Entrib Analytics) viewpoint over the growth drivers in Asia, deployment conditions in India and current challenges for IIoT’s deployment in the Asian region.

The manufacturing sector in Asia has a huge potential through the penetration of Industry 4.0 in shop floors. With its total market value of $66.7 billion and expected growth at a compound annual rate of 14.7%, this region holds the largest market share of the Industry 4.0 market at current.

According to Kiran, the ‘Digital India’ & ‘Made in China 2025’ initiatives taken by the government are the major growth drivers for IIoT in Asia. Both of these governments are expected to contribute heavily into the Asia-Pacific IIoT market.

Entrib has brought significant changes to one of its clients through its IIoT based solution – “We have done complete digitization of factories in India. In one case one of our customers – Prince Pipes and Fittings – has succeeded in digitizing one of their factories in the North thanks to IIoT” added Kiran Natraj.

However, for IIoT to be fully adopted – a number of challenges still remain in Asia. “Identifying a strategy of implementing IIoT is the most critical aspect. A lot of manufacturers want to do PoCs (Proof of Concepts) without really setting clear goals for such projects. Bringing in consultants definitely helps in making the strategy more likely to succeed” stated Kiran.

In order to avail benefits from IIoT, manufacturers in Asia are suggested to understand its concept and benefits upon implementation. Once this happens, the concept of IIoT is sure to be spread across the whole region.
