Maintenance, Repair, and Optimization

Smart manufacturing continuously analyzes real-time operational data, coupled with engineering design and maintenance records, to create digital twins of industrial assets using a combination of physics and AI techniques. These digital twins can predict the behavior of their physical assets under various operating conditions and prescribe operational and service plans that maximize overall equipment availability and total factory return on capital.

Structural CAE

Mechanical engineers and engineering analysts can leverage the power of NVIDIA’s full-stack computing platform to work with massive datasets and perform complex simulations—from real-time FEA to CAD-embedded simulation to standalone CAE pre/post-processing, realistic multi-physics simulations, and visualization.

Computational Fluid Dynamics

The next-generation of GPU-accelerated CFD solvers with multi-GPU support deliver higher productivity and efficiency to design engineers and analysts. Whether they’re evaluating the fluid effects of early concepts or performing complex flow simulations, solution times are reduced from days to hours and hours to minutes. 

Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing (AM) has enabled the creation of lighter and stronger parts with improved performance while simplifying fabrication and increasing production flexibility. NVIDIA technology underpins many AM applications, including GPU-accelerated geometry kernels, generative design, real-time simulation and build preparation.

Operational Process Optimization

Enable your workforce to boost yields and manufacturing capacity through new processes and service-oriented business models using AI algorithms in manufacturing and operations.

Automation Systems

Augment the perception and control of automated material handling systems using GPU-powered AI. These complex systems handle the transportation and manipulation of materials throughout manufacturing and assembly facilities.

Workforce Health and Productivity

Reduce your operational burden by providing flexible work styles to on-site engineers, making remote work more efficient, and improving the ease of future expansions and relocations.

Production

The world's most innovative manufacturers harness petabytes of operational data to maximize the quality, predictability, and profitability of precision manufacturing. These data-driven factories use AI and high-performance computing (HPC) simulation to enable superhuman process control capabilities—positioning themselves to create innovative new products and services for new markets.

  • Accelerating Industrial Automation: Bringing AI to Functional Safety

    • Riccardo Mariani | VP of Industry Safety, NVIDIA

    Functional safety has been around for years, defining a process that ensures that machine safety functions work correctly, or that they can fail in a safe manner. With the rise of industry 4.0, automation, and robotics, today’s factories increasingly have more electronically controlled equipment as well as autonomous machines that must work side by side with humans. Because of this, there is a growing need to understand how we combine AI, edge computing, and functional safety principles to build factories of the future with the highest safety standards.
