The neural plant is a framework that helps manufacturers create operations which are not just autonomous, but resilient, adaptive, and sustainable. Here, physical systems (smart machines and instrumentation), virtual systems (digital twin), data, and external ecosystems, come together and are bound by a neural fabric.
In this keynote address at the IDC European Manufacturing Executive Digital Summit 2021, Sreenivasa Chakravarti, Vice President and Global Head of the Manufacturing Business Practice at TCS, speaks about the need for a neural plant. He talks about how visibility into operations and cognitive capabilities can offer contextual intelligence to drive decision making. He further elaborates on how collaborative value exchanges with ecosystem partners can create superior business value. He also highlights how a neural plant can help manufacturers design and build sustainable operations with optimal utilization of energy and resources through a network of intelligent and self-healing systems.
