Sep. 4, 2017 – Oracle has announced its collaboration with Mitsubishi Electric Corporation to develop an Internet of Things (IoT) platform for smart manufacturing.
With Oracle Cloud, Mitsubishi Electric developed its new FA-IT Open Platform for factory automation, which uses edge computing between devices and business applications. According to the parties, the new platform enables the rapid collection, analysis and utilization of data at production site.
With FA-IT Open Platform, vendors can create manufacturing applications for operation on the platform, including connecting the platform to industrial networks to collect data from various devices and production equipment. The Cloud-connected platform can be used to link manufacturing sites with Cloud vendors’ own Cloud-supported manufacturing-optimization services for supply chains, administration of multiple factories worldwide, and other applications.
FA-IT Open Platform leverages Oracle Database Cloud, Oracle Java Cloud, Oracle BI Cloud, Oracle IoT Cloud, Oracle IoT Production Monitoring Cloud, Oracle SOA Cloud, and Oracle Infrastructure as a Service. Information received in real time from machine tools and production terminals is received by Oracle IoT Cloud, promising to enable real-time processing with the infrastructure.
