Understanding Smart Machines: How they Will Shape the Future
Powered by smart machines, the new industrial revolution is changing how machine builders design and manufacturers operate today and in the future. To remain competitive and profitable, plants and machines will have to be smarter - better connected, more efficient, more flexible and safe. This paper explains the impact of smart machines on the industrial automation and controls business and provides guidance for adapting to a changing industrial landscape.
Look to a brighter industrial future
Our vision of the future is a truly connected ecosystem where technology is at the service of people for greater empowerment and efficiency. Smart connected products and systems mean the right people get the right information at the right time to be able to make better business decisions – what doesn’t contribute to “smartness” will become a commodity in the long run!
Understand our IIoT strategy
The Industrial Internet of Things is an "evolution" not a "revolution"
Tested, Validated, and Documented Architectures (TVDAs) are groupings of Schneider Electric best-in-class products providing typical control architectures. The digital engineering tool TVDA finder will help you to design and build more efficient and cost-effective machines in less time.
