Real-time visibility

Cognizant Smart Manufacturing builds intelligence into production systems to provide real-time visibility and self-optimization into manufacturing operations. We apply the right information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) solutions at scale. This means embedding these technologies with automation and data and analytics to deliver production resilience that brings you increased process efficiencies and enhanced failure predictability. The result: Reduced downtime and extended system value.

Cognizant has industry-wide experience in transforming production operations. Leveraging our best-in class Cognizant OnePlant Methodology, we help you define and map your strategic smart manufacturing vision to quickly identify how new technologies can improve your operations. Our pre-built accelerators rebalance IT and OT solutions to increase productivity, mitigate costs and improve waste control. Our Smart Manufacturing solutions can scale from a single production operation to multiple global sites and locations.
