Amazon Web Services (AWS) and the Volkswagen Group has announced a multi-year, global agreement to build the Volkswagen Industrial Cloud, bringing together real-time data from all of the Volkswagen Group’s 122 manufacturing plants.They say the cloud-based Industrial digital production platform will transform the automotive company’s manufacturing and logistics processes, allowing the company to manage the overall effectiveness of assembly equipment, as well as track parts and vehicles. Volkswagen say that it will rely upon the breadth and depth of AWS’s portfolio of services, including IoT, machine learning, analytics, and compute services to increase plant efficiency and uptime, improve production flexibility, and increase vehicle quality.

Volkswagen will use the suite of AWS IoT services, including AWS IoT Greengrass, AWS IoT Core, AWS IoT Analytics, and AWS IoT SiteWise, to detect, collect, organise, and run sophisticated analytics on data from the plant floor.

Volkswagen states that the Industrial Cloud will glean insights that will pinpoint operational trends, improve forecasting, and streamline operations by identifying gaps in production and waste.
