Innovation Made Easy with a Full Stack Solution  

Manufacturers slow to embrace digitalization are feeling the pressure. There’s skyrocketing demand that’s highlighting the need to be able to pivot faster than ever; the labor crisis that the industrial sector has been experiencing for years; and the already-delicate supply chain that fell apart over the last two years that’s still causing massive disruption today. There’s simply no denying that manufacturing is at an inflection point.

The challenges are even more intense within factories that have outdated solutions and can’t adapt fast enough to overcome these hurdles. The path forward is clear cut: those who welcome modern means of production will more easily tackle challenges and gain a leg up on their competition.

Make Way for Innovation

At Bright Machines our mission is to increase the speed, scalability, and flexibility of manufacturing with our intelligent Brightware® platform. Our customers benefit from a full-stack solution–one that leverages intelligent software and adaptive robotics–to take advantage of continuous improvements and insights needed to increase production efficiency.

Here are a few benefits of our full-stack solution:

Optimized operations – Seamlessly integrated with the Bright Machines Microfactory, Brightware Studio enables manufacturers to easily make changes or add steps to the line to ensure an optimal production process from start to finish. Our solutions also provide greater visibility into operations and allows for faster response time to issues. For example, maintenance engineers can gain the ability to identify the root cause of an equipment issue and respond to it by leveraging diagnostic tools within the solution instead of waiting for equipment failure.

Speed and scale – Manufacturing lines no longer have a single life; switching between product SKUs and extending learnings from well-running lines to other factories is expected from the next generation of automation. Our intelligent automation capabilities allow manufacturers to create their desired assembly sequence within an intuitive user interface and run the “recipe” they need with just a few clicks. And changes are quick and easy, meeting new production requirements.

Increased resiliency – Greater flexibility and adaptability are derived from the ability to adjust the types of data and dashboards teams monitor, helping strengthen the decision-making process by understanding where challenges are across the production line in real-time. A process engineer, for example, can analyze potential bottlenecks on a microfactory line via dashboards that show cycle time statistics. They can see how many cycles ran and the average run rate across all lines and can then run additional tests to determine where adjustments can be made to increase cycle times. 

Manufacturers who embrace next-generation manufacturing solutions will find themselves in the desirable position of being able to innovate quickly to meet their customers’ demands, rather than simply keeping things running.

It’s time to rethink manufacturing’s potential—you can start today by reaching out to learn more.
