Unmatched Protection of Critical Manufacturing Assets
Vertiv in Manufacturing: We're at the age of Manufacturing 4.0 with Artifical Intelligence, Robots and 'smart' technologies are transforming the factory floor. Is your business ready?
What is happening?
Al takes Center Stage
To improve processes, manufacturers are increasingly eyeing investments in automation such as robotics and machine learning.
A key benefit in automation is that it reduces risks especially in industrial sites such as those using heavy machinery or those in dangerous operating environments.
A Leaner Supply Chain System
To stay above the competition, an organization’s supply chain needs to be optimized to deliver greater value to customers.
Aside from pricing and stock availability, manufacturers will increasingly focus on simplifying supply chain management to be able to operate more efficiently, manage stocks better and reduce operational cost.
Many will digitize their supply chains through the use of RFID, business intelligence, as well as tools to improve logistics, optimize network and inventory.
Predictive Maintenance Gains Traction
There is growing adoption of predictive maintenance technologies that could not only reduce a company’s maintenance
The use of predictive maintenance tools could save manufacturers valuable time, money and resources.
- There is no room for downtime in a manufacturing facility as downtime means financial loss, damaged
reputationand can ruin contractual obligations.
- Manufacturing facilities require continuous, clean and reliable power+B5 source to prevent downtime in the production process.
- They require solutions that are robust and rugged, designed to withstand harsh, contaminated environments. Standardized UPS, power protection and cooling solutions are not enough.
- Manufacturers must be able to come up with ways to seamlessly integrate technology into everyday manufacturing operations.
- Equipment should be optimized and designed to accommodate technology integration through the use of predictive tools as well as power availability.
- IT managers must have the right infrastructure in place not only to support the uptick in
compute requirements,but also to manage the entire manufacturing facility better and smarter.
- As they strive to create a leaner, more efficient supply chain, manufacturers must be aware of key supply and demand information in real time, right up to the shop floor – to be able to adjust production SKUs and schedules.
- Predictive monitoring tools can aid in having a smarter supply chain network. These tools must be able to predict, diagnose and provide action on all areas of the manufacturing network to ensure process continuity at all times.

Enterprises and Energy
The digital world is all about innovation, technology and connectivity, and one thing that transcends all three of these is energy.
What to Expect During Implementation
Implementations in the data center are usually about technology—a new device providing greater power, speed, flexibility and so forth. It’s not to say that DCIM isn’t a technology, but it’s important to realize that DCIM isn’t just a technology implementation—it’s a business solution for your data center.
Achieving a Higher Level of Data Centre Efficiency
With data centres needing more energy than ever before, facility managers are faced with the challenge of keeping the ‘lights on’ while cutting down costs and maximising efficiency. Improving data centre performance doesn’t necessarily entail a costly upgrade. With optimisation, you can have a highly efficient data centre at lower costs. Click on the links below to learn more.
