Both e-Commerce and m-Commerce business grow up quickly under the support of wireless communicaton technology and its infrastructure plus embeded system and nanotechnology developing for semiconductor successfully. "Thing" will be built with mentioned technonlogies and have less power consumption, longer sustainability and smaller size, therefore it become possibile to let machine-to-machine or called thing-to-thing, things such as blood pressure sensors or moving transportation vehicles etc, communicate each other well. In consequence, lots of data will be generated by machines, collected by wireless networking, finally stored in cloud computing device as Big Data. Through smart analytics, that is performed by AI (Artificial Intelligence) in powerful cloud computing platform, the valuable information, such as new businesss models and applications from Home, City, Industry,Transportation, Medical, even Agriculturetc, will be created. However, to enhance the small scale FAB's operation efficiency is my focus.
Plan to visit a plastic injection molding FAB with small scale size and have face-to-face discussion with the owner and field operators to collect the information of how many IoT related product used in the FAB and to observe the FAB's daily life. Try to find the FAB's weakness of operation performance and then introduce industrial 4.0 concept and use high cost-performance ratio (CP) Iot technology to improve it.
《Research Results & Contribution》
According to the weakness found, plan to use current available Iot product to improve the FAB's operation efficiency. The close-out report will be a proporsal with my planning and concepture design to suggest the owner how to do with ROI (Return on Investment). Through this case, hope to find a systematic methodology to enhance the opration efficiency for all small scale FAB in Taiwan.
