INDUSTRY.co.id - SINGAPORE, Rockwell Automation, the world’s largest company dedicated to industrial automation and digital transformation, is strengthening its partner network in the region with its latest partnership with  CAD-IT, a Singapore-based leading Industry 4.0 technologies provider.

Among other information software solutions, the partnership will see CAD-IT offer Rockwell Automation’s smart manufacturing and automation solutions: newly acquired Plex Systems, a cloud-native smart manufacturing platform; and Fiix, a cloud-based, artificial intelligence (AI)-powered computerized maintenance management system (see appendix). Both Plex and Fiix cater to the food and beverage, household and personal care, and automotive industries across Asia Pacific.

“Global manufacturing took a hit during the beginning of the pandemic. Businesses in Southeast Asia started facing supply chain disruptions, lower productivity, and rising manufacturing costs,” said Marcelo Tarkieltaub, regional director for Southeast Asia, Rockwell Automation.

“As we recover from the pandemic, businesses must address these key issues, improve their manufacturing capabilities, and supply chain processes, and build resilience to withstand unexpected disruptions. Digital technologies, smart manufacturing, human-machine interaction, and advanced analytics are helping manufacturers optimize processes and strengthen their position as ‘factories of the world."

“Southeast Asia is one of the fastest growing sub-regions for us. We are very pleased to partner with CAD-IT who is well-versed in the region. By combining our technologies and expertise with their strong regional network and execution competency, we can make smart manufacturing and digital transformation solutions more accessible to businesses in Southeast Asia,” added Tarkieltaub.
