Smart Manufacturing Solutions: Build or Buy?

The pros and cons of building vs. buying a smart manufacturing solution.


Enterprise smart manufacturing platforms have become an important part of the manufacturing ecosystem, especially in domains such as semiconductors and electronics. McKinsey & Company estimates, for example, that the quantity of process, product, and machine data collected on a daily basis in a typical fab quickly exceeds terabytes. If you add to this in-line and end-of-line inspection as well as metrology data, the volume of data generated in a fab expands exponentially with each new node dimension. Smart manufacturing platforms make this data actionable through state-ofthe-art technologies such as advanced analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. Smart manufacturing platforms leverage big data to bring compelling advantages to a manufacturing organization.
