In manufacturing, manual data entry is often time consuming and unreliable. It may be missing important context or include human error, leading to inaccurate information. Advantech and Raven.ai, leading provider of data contextualization software, now offer a joint smart factory solution for manufacturers and systems integrators to quickly and reliably deploy edge technologies and analyze data for business intelligence.

The Advantech + Raven smart factory solution is specifically designed to pave the way for operators and frontline staff to be proactive in factory edge applications and asset management. The combination of IoT systems, edge devices and automated contextualization means frontline teams have the right hardware and technology to capture shop floor data with context.

The Raven all-in-one communication protocol provides a comprehensive range of features, including real-time data collection and visualization, production status tracking, quick asset allocation and reallocation, proactive alerts and advanced edge analytics.

With real-time reporting and data visualization, organizations can account for 100% of production time and losses. New insights are uncovered through contextualized data, opening the door for significant productivity improvements and optimized processes. Real-time data drives improvements in every shift.

Featured Advantech hardware devices for the combined solution include various intelligent panel PC options and edge devices, including the UNO-2271G-V2, a small, form-factor industrial edge IoT gateway. Advantech touch-panel PCs enable real-time monitoring and simultaneous computing, storage, notifications and dashboard visualization.
