The tech team at Minda Industries implemented IoT on MES platform along with analytics and mobility for smart manufacturing. The idea behind was to adopt industry 4.0 concept to modernize its factories, plants, logistics, supply chain and shop floor. It started as a pilot project on one of the factories, and the company benefited in many terms. Some of the benefits include getting inspection results, OLE, OK/NG, energy consumption and predictive maintenance data on a real time basis. The project also involved working with a startup to bring in analytics and dashboards for operation managers and top management on a real time bases. With the implementation of this project, the company could reduce four operators per plant on average.
