We will introduce customer-specific deployment case studies of optimizing factory-wide operations using AI and IoT, in which all manufacturing data is visualized to provide accurate information on the current manufacturing status.
Data are compared, analyzed, and predicted per index item, including plant KPIs, across different sections to aid in maximizing manufacturing performance.
In this area, we introduce our cutting-edge technologies and solutions that provide new user experiences.
A new generation of vending machines that promote communication in co-working spaces and refreshment areas, as well as serving as environments for co-creation, are capable of making recommendations according to the needs of drink purchasers as well as discovering trend information and allowing purchasers to share in-house knowledge.
