Innovation and technology that is reshaping the industry
Achieve agility, save costs and increase resilience in your supply chain by migrating to Azure. Your move to intelligent manufacturing starts with an enterprise-ready cloud that powers complex industrial operations at global scale.
Explore some manufacturing use cases for Azure
Remote manufacturing operations
Connect equipment across the factory floor to predict risks, reduce downtime and optimise operations with intelligence. Track assets and performance, run what-if scenarios and tune equipment with AI using real-time historical data.
Automated quality control
Use AI systems that detect defects through image recognition and other parameters on the assembly line, allowing for early-stage intervention, improved quality and reliability in real-time.
Inventory planning and optimisation
Use AI and machine learning to combine your existing internal sales data with external data to optimise inventory, increase forecasting accuracy, reduce costs and enhance customer service levels.
