Cloud is Proving its Worth in the Manufacturing and Infrastructure Sector.Cloud-computing has been proving itself to be a prime game changer and a leader in technology innovation. Many industries and sectors are benefiting from the possibilities it offers for workers and business owners alike. Only recently, Google Cloud has partnered with Stanford University School of Medicine to better diagnose cancer and rare diseases.
With its key features, cloud computing also proves imperatively useful for the Manufacturing and Infrastructure sector.
Self-diagnosing InfrastructureA Washington University team of engineers found in cloud-computing a solution for a safer infrastructure. They designed an intelligent infrastructure that can self-monitor, predict failures and identify priority areas in case of emergency response.
They designed a sensor that can be embedded into the infrastructure that records data that are accessible from the cloud. The engineers will install the first prototype on Mackinac Bridge, MI this September.
The team, with the support of US Dept of Transportation and other government agencies, sees this technological innovation as a very promising solution to create a safer infrastructure in case of earthquake, flood and other life-threatening emergencies.
Manufacturing Sectors backed by Cloud-based AnalyticsCost-effective production and reliable service to customers are some of the solutions that the cloud offers to the manufacturing sector. The manual operation and monitoring are now shifting to cloud-based system that could draw out big data utilised to provide useful business insights.
Cloud-based analytics prove useful to accurately monitor the level of production of manufacturers. It also identifies patterns across the complex supply chain wherein insights are drawn to help them diagnose and resolve areas of inefficiency.
On the other hand, client portals and collaboration tools enable manufacturers to reduce process problems and provide real-time order status and forecast.
