Samsung SDS, a global leading IT services company, has launched its smart factory system service Nexplant based on the state-of-the-art technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and big data, tapping into the smart factory system market in earnest.
The company announced on November 16 that it will start selling the Nexplant, a smart factory total solution that integrates the entire manufacturing process from product development, production and quality to plant operation, to manufacturers at home and abroad.
In particular, the Nexplant system is run on Brightics, an AI and big data analysis platform. In other words, its Internet of Things technology (IoT) system collects and analyzes data via sensors and provide plant managers with real-time check-ups of the manufacturing facility.
A Samsung SDS spokesperson said, “The Nexplant solution, which is based on IoT, big data and AI systems, can identify various manufacturing problems through the big data analysis platform and come up with solutions quickly and accurately. Unlike existing manufacturing analysis systems, which normally takes a maximum of 12 hours to detect and fix a problem, the Nexplant system can fix factory malfunctions within 10 minutes.”
Samsung SDS also said that the system is applicable not only for large factories but also smaller manufacturers. Accordingly, the Nexplant solution will be used in small and mid-sized production facilities for numerous industries at home and abroad, including steel, car, electric, electronics, textile and biotechnology.
