Factory+: Building the Digital Foundations of a Modern Connected Factory

20 October 2021 11:15 - 12:00

The method of digitally connecting factories has remained the same for decades, with deployments organically growing as business requirements evolve and new technologies are developed. Modern technologies and approaches such as infrastructure-as-code, containerisation and edge-driven operations solve many problems presented by legacy, organic, point-to-point based architectures. This talk will give an overview of Factory+, an open-access digital factory framework developed by the AMRC, and explore the requirements for such a framework in today’s modern connected world.
