Edgecross-supporting Software
Aiming for advanced manufacturing
through data collection and management
To realize a smart factory, it is necessary to utilize shop floor data in real time and effectively integrate with IT systems.
“Edge computing” that primarily processes information between shop floor and IT systems supports these activities.
Utilization of the edge computing is essential for optimization of value chain focused on the shop floor.
To autonomous decentralized system by edge computing

Primary processing of the production site data can reduce traffic and ensure security when sending data to Cloud or IT systems

Real-time data analysis and feedback near shop floor to improve efficiency in equipment maintenance and other operations

Total solutions in manufacturing industry using our FA and IT technologies
Improvement of all processes in the shop floor is promoted by e-F@ctory Solutions utilizing Edgecross
Software platform in the edge computing area from Japan realizes collaboration between FA and IT

“Edgecross” is an open software platform in the edge computing area that realizes collaboration between FA and IT across companies and industries.
