Discrete Manufacturing

Connecting people, products and processes

For discrete manufacturers, the ways in which your customers use products and the ways in which you collaborate with partners are changing rapidly and irrevocably. Atos puts you in control of this digital and data-driven shift.

It’s a great time to be in manufacturing – if you take advantage of the digital challenge

Across discrete manufacturing, digitally-driven changes have a massive impact on business, collaboration, relationships, behavior and expectations.

Where is this impact felt most keenly? Previously fragmented supply chains have now become virtual teams. Your customers build online relationships with products. Additive manufacturing and machine-to-machine communications begin to impact both production and ongoing product use.

In the face of these digital shockwaves, manufacturers must learn how to exploit massive and growing volumes of data. In this connected world, your ability to use data as a core asset becomes key to sustainable success.

Atos has impeccable and well-established credentials in discrete manufacturing.

We have a special focus on Industry 4.0 within our comprehensive Internet-of-Things approach. This is driven by solutions including Product-Lifecycle-Management, Manufacturing Execution Systems and CAx, and is empowered by new technologies including Additive Manufacturing and Augmented Reality. To deliver maximum value to our customers we have built alliances, with Siemens and other leaders in manufacturing.

We are also rapidly gaining reputation in cognitive computing and data analytics, with our use-case focused Atos Codex analytics portfolio.

Make Atos your partner for digital transformation.

According to PAC, IT services spending is increasing in manufacturing much higher than in other industries, making up a share of about 25% of all manufacturing spending in 2020.
