NTT DOCOMO  and NTT DOCOMO ASIA announced that they have begun conducting a trial of an IoT monitoring system to improve the manufacturing performance of a synthetic-fibers factory in Thailand.

In the trial, DOCOMO ASIA is deploying the IoT Solution Platform to visualize the operational status of production operations in the Thai factory. IoT devices equipped with up to 30 different sensors are collecting operational information on the factory floor and then transmitting real-time data to the cloud via a mobile network. Technicians will be able to use PCs, smartphones or tablets to remotely monitor the status of production operations via the platform.

The IoT Solution Platform enables manufacturers to digitalize their operations and rapidly gather information from factory floors for improved efficiency in production management. The platform also helps to reduce production downtime by allowing manufacturers to closely monitor the status of their production equipment to detect malfunctions, maintenance needs and so on.

The IoT Solution Platform is already being used by a manufacturer engaged in the production of automotive plastic parts. The platform is now being introduced in the textile industry to realize more efficient and reliable production operations by providing value-added services that will enable manufacturers to supply customers with textile products of higher quality and on a more stable basis.

Going forward, DOCOMO and DOCOMO ASIA expect manufacturers of synthetic fibers and other products across Southeast Asia to increasingly adopt the IoT Solution Platform to raise the productivity and quality of their production operations.
