IBM's 5G Industry 4.0 Project utilised the strengths of the 5G Industry in changing the 4.0 technology and solutions landscape.
IBM works with companies to co-create a roadmap to customised solutions that focus on leveraging existing OT investments, improving key metrics, and using people that know best.
Recently, the company was honoured at the SBR Technology Excellence Awards 2021 in the augmented and virtual reality - manufacturing services category for bringing 5G to the forefront of Industry 4.0 technology and solutions.
Industry 4.0 is revolutionising the way companies manufacture, improve and distribute their products. Manufacturers are integrating enabling technologies, including the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing and analytics, and AI and machine learning into their production facilities and throughout their operations. This allows for increased automation and the employment of smart factories informed by data to produce goods more efficiently and productively.
IBM's “Leveraging 5G in Industry 4.0” project focuses on the implementation of 5G—or 5th generation mobile network technology—and how it changes the architecture and deployment model in Industry 4.0 technology and solutions. This project aims to accelerate industry transformation, test the next-level performance of 5G-enabled Industry 4.0 solutions, and contribute to the vision to transform the Singapore industry ecosystem for the future of 5G.
Working with partners IMDA, Samsung and M1, the project has a 16-month-tenure that will end in June 2021. Therefore, it is important for businesses to come forward to try the 5G solutions before the end of the project in June.
This goal is divided into three different phases:
Some of its key achievements include:
Successful 5G-enabled Industry 4.0 use-cases developed from this partnership project could be demonstrated for manufacturing enterprises and applied to production, service, quality control, and testing across a broad range of industries.
5G’s capabilities such as faster data transfer and a more rapid response time, when coupled with other transformative technologies like AI, can enable significant improvements to manufacturing processes.
The Technology Excellence Awards, presented by Singapore Business Review, was held via studio award presentations and video conferencing sessions throughout the second and third week of April.
This year’s nominations were judged by a panel consisting of Daryl Pereira, Head of Cyber at KPMG; Cheang Wai Keat, Partner, Consulting at Ernst & Young Advisory Pte. Ltd.; Henry Tan, Group Chief Executive Officer and Chief Innovation Officer at Nexia TS; Sivakumar Saravan, Senior Partner at Crowe Singapore; Cecil Su, Director, Head of Cybersecurity of BDO Singapore.
