Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) helps Nanya Technology Corporation (Nanya) boost its manufacturing productivity...

Nanya Technology Corporation (Nanya) - the fourth largest manufacturer of dynamic random access memory (DRAM) - has selected Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s (HPE) Ezmeral Container Platform.

In selecting HPE’s platform, Nanya will continue its improvement of its production yield, quality and cost by accelerating the rollout of artificial intelligence (AI) projects in its fabs.

In selecting HPE’s Ezmeral Container Platform, Nanya’s data scientists can instantly set up, test and deploy new AI use cases driving process improvements across its production processes, advancing the company’s smart manufacturing strategy.

Why Nanya selected HPE’s Ezmeral Container Platform

Committed to continuous improvement to exceed customer requirements, Nanya’s DRAM technology plays a vital role in many smart devices. The company uses AI and advanced analytics as a strategic method to detect deficiencies, prevent failures, and automate processes in its Taiwan fabs.

In recent months, Nanya has been increasing its use of AI, While this has increased the sophistication and scale of its analytics, it has also increased its complexity. To centralise and simplify its processes for its data scientists, Nanya selected the HPE Ezmeral Container Platform.

In doing so, the platform provides unique capabilities to deploy and operate AI and analytics workloads, as well as consolidate its Kubernetes environment, and execute its smart manufacturing strategy to advance its operational effectiveness and its competitive edge.

“The HPE Ezmeral portfolio plays an essential role in our edge-to-cloud platform-as-a-service strategy to help our clients turn data into insights and outcomes faster. We are excited to help Nanya Technology Corporation advance its continuous-improvement approach by accelerating the application of AI in its DRAM production,” commented Jon Wang, Managing Director Taiwan, Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

Manufacturing Global looks takes a look at the latest market trends in smart manufacturing, industrial automation, smart factory and AI...

Global Smart Manufacturing Market

Attributed to the rapid growth in the adoption of automated systems in industrial processes, the global smart manufacturing market is predicted to grow from US$$175bn (2020) to US$303bn by 2026 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.4% between 2019 and 2026.

While COVID-19 has somewhat slowed down the market’s growth, it is expected that by the second to third quarter of 2023 there will be a ‘considerable’ rise in growth for the market. 

Key players in the industry: Schneider Electric, General Electric, Siemens, Honeywell International Inc., Rockwell Automation Inc., FANUC Corporation, and Emerson Electric Co. 

Industrial Automation Market

Making people’s lives easier, and their work more accurate and effective, the global demand for automated technologies such as robotics - especially in science and technology - is driving its increase in global market value.

By 2027, the global industrial automation market is expected to reach US$326.14bn by 2027, with a CAGR of 8.9% between 2020 and 2027.

Key players in the industry: ABB, Siemens, General Electric, Schneider, Endress+Hauser, Yokogawa, Honeywell, WIKA, Azbil, Fuji Electric, 3D Systems, and HP.

Smart Factory Market

Expected to grow from US$80.1bn (2021) to US$134.9bn by 2026, the smart factory market - with a CAGR of 11% between 2021 and 2026 - is experiencing growth driven by fiscal policies adopted to keep manufacturing facilities afloat during COVID-19. 

Other driving factors include resource optimisation, cost reduction in production operations, increased demand for industrial robotics, rising demand for technologies, and the growing significance of energy efficiency. 

Key players in the industry: Emerson Electric Co., General Electric, Rockwell Automation, Inc., Schneider Electric SE, ABB Ltd., Siemens AG, Mitsubishi Electric Corp., Honeywell International Inc., Endress+Hauser AG, and Yokogawa Electric Corp.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Manufacturing Market

“It is undeniable that the manufacturing industry is at the forefront of artificial intelligence implementation,” says Analytics Insights. “Manufacturers are using AI-powered analytics to increase performance, product quality, and employee protection, from substantial reductions in unplanned downtime to better crafted goods.”

As manufacturers look to realise the potential benefits of artificial intelligence (AI) in their processes, it is predicted that the AI in manufacturing market will grow to US$11bn by 2025 with a CAGR of 54.6%.
