德赢vwin开户横河电机公司(东京:6841)和NTT Communications Corporation (“NTT Com”) announce they have signed a business partnership agreement for the joint development and provision of a shared-use operational technology (OT)1cloud service that will support digital transformation (DX) in the manufacturing industry through the fusion of Yokogawa and NTT Com's respective strengths in OT and IT.

Based on this partnership, the two companies aim to adapt production control systems2and manufacturing execution systems3用于在基于云的服务中使用,然后通过开发共享的OT云服务来发展这些服务。

背景

In recent years, the manufacturing industry has faced the challenge not only of dealing with soaring resource prices, fluctuations in supply and demand, and the development of high-quality products, but has also had to swiftly deal with changes in a diversifying business environment, such as the need to manufacture products that contribute to a decarbonized society. However, manufacturing facilities and the systems that control them are built in on-premises environments where the focus is on availability and the robustness needed to maintain non-stop operations, so dealing with immediate system-related changes is a significant challenge. To handle these issues, a system configuration that supports high flexibility is required.

The practice of moving systems into the cloud has become the dominant approach in the IT field. Through this partnership, the two companies will apply this practice to OT, and by providing a shared-use OT cloud service, will support DX in the manufacturing industry to drive forward improvements in manufacturing flexibility and data utilization.

Overview of the Partnership

  1. 适应云服务的生产控制系统和制造执行系统
    The two companies will migrate specific OT systems such as production control systems and manufacturing execution systems into the cloud so they can be provided as a service.

    Yokogawa already offers services, including Yokogawa Cloud,4这分析了云中的设施数据并简化了维护工作。通过这种合作伙伴关系,特定的OT系统将适用于NTT COM的智能数据平台,5它提供了一个一站式解决方案功能that are required to utilize a company's data and maintain a high-security environment, and enables the swift handling of tasks such as system renewal, function expansion, and control-setting modification.
  2. 开发和提供共享的OT云服务
    By adding OT-IT orchestration functions to the aforementioned cloud services for production-control and manufacturing-execution systems, the two companies aim to develop and provide a shared-use OT cloud service for collaboration between the production-control and manufacturing-execution systems of each user company. Not only will this make swift system renewals and on-demand functional enhancements a reality, it will also enable data sharing between users and lead to the optimization of manufacturers’ entire supply chains.

    For instance, by analyzing data, manufacturing techniques can be identified that will help to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions not only for individual businesses, but also across entire supply chains.

    The two companies also aim to bring in additional partners who can make functional enhancements to the shared-use OT cloud service, and increase the number of users.

Role of Each Company

Yokogawa: System development for a shared-use OT cloud service that utilizes the company's OT-domain knowledge of control and manufacturing management

NTT Com: Platform development for the provision of a shared-use OT cloud service utilizing the company's IT-domain knowledge of security and the cloud

横川电气公司总裁兼首席执行官Hitoshi Nara表示:“这种合德赢vwin开户作伙伴关系表示实现系统系统的重要合作关系6我们提倡的概念。通过提供将两家公司IT和OT汇集在一起​​的服务,我们将能够整合各种系统,从而实现总体优化,这将有助于解决我们社会所面临的问题。

Toru Maruoka, president & CEO of NTT Communications Corporation commented, “We will meet the high level of real-time performance, availability, and security requirements required for cloud-based plant-control systems by making use of our edge and center distributed cloud systems as well as our low-latency networks. Through collaboration between the two companies, we will support the optimization of the overall supply chain in the manufacturing sector and create an industrial model capable of contributing to the achievement of a sustainable society.

发展计划

基于这个联盟,两家公司将于2022年2月开始进行实验,以证明生产控制和制造业执行系统的迁移到云服务,并旨在在2022财年(2023年3月)之前启动此服务。关于下一阶段的共享OT云服务,联合实验将在2022财年开始,目的是在2024财年推出此服务。

1: OT is a collective term for the operational and control technologies used in plants and other such places.
2: A production control system is a system that monitors the control and operation of a plant or factory.
3: A manufacturing execution system is a system that supports the management of manufacturing processes and operators.
4: Yokogawa Cloud is a cloud service from Yokogawa that supports a wide variety of facilities and industrial protocols, efficiently gathers IoT data that is generated, and enables swift analysis in the cloud and data visualization. For more details, see the following website.
