Digital Manufacturing

The right technology can transform your factory floor

As the velocity of tech-driven change in manufacturing rapidly increases, companies are realizing the need for a collaborative relationship between operational and information technology. Dell can help manufacturers make the connection across these key areas:
  • Analytics — Machines produce valuable sensor data that can be combined with ERP and other database sources to create actionable insights.
  • Mobility — Giving team members access to the right information at the right time improves decision making and overall productivity. Mobile technology like rugged Dell tablets and notebooks reduces manual processes and supports your team members.
  • Cloud and virtualization — Virtual is replacing physical, with Dell end-to-end cloud client-computing solutions enabling not only a smaller footprint for the factory floor, but also advanced tool, facility and process simulations that can preemptively identify problems.
  • Security — With your intellectual property (IP) and hacker attempts to access it growing, the need for a comprehensive security solution like Dell Connected Security overarches every aspect — people, data and assets.
Transitioning into this era of the digital factory can be daunting. Drawing from the knowledge and experience gained from years of helping manufacturers improve their operations, we’ve developed a successful strategy for change:
  • Share the journey — Communicate throughout all levels of the organization and engage front-line team members to earn their buy-in.
  • Virtualize to mobilize — Deliver operational metrics and alerts to the right person at the right time.
  • Automate and integrate — Enable data-driven decision making.
  • Predict and optimize — Transform data into intelligence that drives manufacturing outcomes.
  • Deploy connected security — Secure data from the device to the cloud.
From our proven standard IT packages to custom application development, let Dell help you map your journey to becoming a digital factory — contact a Dell manufacturing expert to learn more.
