Digital Transformation

Athena focuses on delivering advanced Industry 4.0 Digital transformation solutions that power smart factories. Our core competences in Manufacturing Execution Systems and extensive experience in connected factory and automation solutions has enabled its customers to optimize their manufacturing processes and supply chains resulting in improved product quality, cost and on-time-delivery.

Industry 4.0

  • Industry 4.0 is reshaping the manufacturing sector, leading to profound changes in how companies produce, enhance, and distribute their products
  • Manufacturers are progressively incorporating cutting-edge technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, analytic, as well as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning into their production facilities and overall operational processes.

Industry 4.0 Trends

  • Digitalization is the process of employing digital technology and data to transform business operations
  • In Manufacturing, this is known as Industrial 4.0 or ‘The Smart Factory
  • The Smart Factory digitally connects interdependent elements of the Production Process with Analytic insights enabling higher levels of automation and resulting Continuous Improvements

The Smart Factory

  • Digitally Connects Production Systems with Factory Assets
  • Analyzes data collected to drive insights
  • Augments human intelligence with machine intelligence to deliver sustained, step-change improvements in performance and safety

A smart factory is flexible, can self-optimize performance across a broader network, self-adapt to and learn from new conditions in real- or near real-time, and autonomously run entire production processes.

The Smart Factory Eco System

The Smart Factory Eco-System

The Smart Factory achieves direct KPI benefits that result in Higher Yield, Product Quality and Good-Out’s, while lowering Cycle Times and overall Production Costs.

This is accomplished by integrating technologies along the Production Life Cycle, to continuously improve, Production performance, automation, control and critical Insights.

Smart Factory Analytics

Smart Factory Analytics provide ‘Continuous Cycles of Learning’, native within The Smart Factory, where integration and data collection are essential building blocks.

  • Predictive
    (What will happen)
  • Diagnostic
    (Why did it happen)
  • Descriptive
    (What Happened) Data Warehouse supported.
  • Prescriptive
    (What action to take)
  • Real Time
    • Essential for making immediate In-Line Decisions
  • Correlative & Trend
    • Experiments, Process / Equipment Changes
    • Operational Efficiency
