Shifting gears for Digital Transformation in Manufacturing

Intelligent, insight driven, and sustainable Enabling a new era for Manufacturing

The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us that digital solutions are crucial in maintaining smooth factory and supply chain operations while producing top-quality products. The aim cannot simply be to revert to pre-pandemic conditions. Instead, manufacturers must aim higher and strive for a new phase of accelerated growth.

  • Predictive Maintenance:¬†Using IoT and¬†data analytics, manufacturers can track the performance and health of their equipment in real-time and predict when maintenance is needed. This helps to reduce unplanned downtime and improve the overall efficiency of production
  • Quality Control:¬†By using AI and machine learning, manufacturers can automatically inspect products for defects and perform quality checks, reducing the number of human errors and increasing accuracy
  • Supply Chain Optimization:¬†By incorporating digital tools such as blockchain and data analytics, manufacturers can gain greater visibility into their supply chain, allowing for more efficient and cost-effective sourcing of materials and components
  • Production Planning and Control:¬†Using digital tools, manufacturers can create a more flexible and responsive production environment that can quickly adapt to changing customer demands. This allows for real-time monitoring of production and the ability to adjust on-the-fly to ensure customer needs are met
  • Inventory Management:¬†With the help of IoT and data analytics, manufacturers can track inventory levels in real-time and optimize the stock of raw materials, components, and finished goods to minimize waste and reduce costs

  • Enhanced Security:¬†Our data center and network architecture are designed to meet the security requirements of the most security-sensitive organizations, ensuring the protection of your data
For a leading Agro manufacturer, we modernized their SAP infrastructure, making it more agile, available, and responsive. The infrastructure which was hosted on SAP certified AWS Cloud was also continuously monitored 24/7 as per the required governance framework

Monitor and Secure your IT/OT Environment

We protect you against cyber threats with a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy that includes

  • Access controls:¬†Ensure that only authorized personnel have access to critical systems and data
  • Network security:¬†Implement firewalls, virtual private networks (VPNs), and other network security measures to prevent unauthorized access to systems and data
  • Software security:¬†Ensure that all software used in the manufacturing process is regularly updated and patched to prevent vulnerabilities from being exploited
  • Incident response plan:¬†Have a plan in place for responding to cyber incidents, including a clear understanding of the roles and responsibilities of all stakeholders
  • Regular security assessments:¬†Regularly assess the security of your systems and processes to identify and remediate potential vulnerabilities
Locuz partnered with one of the leading producers of long steel in the Americas and one of the largest suppliers of special steel in the world to bring in Process and Operation efficiency in managing their network and security infrastructure. We helped them Continuous Vulnerability and Threat management, integrated their systems into a consolidated Security and Network Operation Dashboard enhancing Visibility and Control. We not only saved 15% in their Operational cost and enhanced their predictability but also made them 100% Compliance and Audit ready

Modernize your product and production design efforts with High Performance Computing (HPC)

Locuz can help you with

  • Optimize product design:¬†By using HPC simulations, manufacturers can optimize the design of their products, improving their performance and reducing the need for physical prototypes
  • Enhance process simulation:¬†HPC can be used to simulate complex manufacturing processes, allowing manufacturers to optimize their production lines and reduce waste
  • Improve product quality:¬†HPC can be used to perform detailed simulations of product performance and predict potential issues before they occur, leading to improved product quality
  • Enhance supply chain management:¬†HPC can be used to analyze large amounts of supply chain data, allowing manufacturers to make better-informed decisions about their operations
  • Reduce energy consumption:¬†HPC can be used to simulate energy consumption and identify ways to reduce energy usage in the manufacturing process, reducing costs and increasing sustainability
A global product engineering and digital services company partnered with us to access HPC Services on Cloud. We started with two applications and 144 cores and within 8 months increased it to 1080 cores and 4 applications along with round the clock support in monitoring and managing their HPC infra and helping users on running their jobs efficiently on cloud

Integrate Valuable Data

Locuz can help you with

  • Monitor production processes:¬†Collect and analyze data from production processes to identify areas for improvement, optimize processes, and reduce waste
  • Improve quality control:¬†Analyze data from quality control processes to identify trends and improve product quality
  • Enhance supply chain management:¬†Analyze data from suppliers and logistics operations to improve supply chain efficiency and reduce costs
