Smart manufacturing is inclusive of many innovations that help optimize and au- tomate Lean, flexible, defect-free manufactur- ing, but is also a crucial element in the ability to maintain the security of manufacturing op- erations and Intellectual Property (IP).

Smart Industry 4.0 Right Now Aegis FactoryLogix was designed from the ground up using modern, innovative technolo- gy, anticipating the need for a single-platform, IIoT-based solution, promoting interopera- bility between key enterprise solutions, shop- floor machine-based automation, and Human 4.0 innovation.
