What is the Manufactory Project?

Manufactory is developing the Blockchain model for the manufacturing industry ecosystem. 

Our vision is to facilitate the digitisation of manufacturing data through Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and to provide an intelligent decentralised ecosystem that allows cyber-physical systems to easily interact with it. 

This will empower manufacturing facilities to maximise the efficiency of their assets and create intelligent manufacturing systems allowing any size enterprise to produce an exceptionally smart factory on a level not seen before.

Why is the Manufactory Project needed?

Every manufacturing facility must solve problems that obstruct their production activities whilst finding ways to maximise their capacity. They also have the challenge of competing in a global manufacturing industry by becoming more efficient whilst maintaining quality and reducing costs.

The issues with manufacturing today are broad and include:

  • Outdated & Unreachable Technology
  • Imperceptible Supply Chains
  • Unproductive Supply Chains
  • Automatic Manufacturing Process Control
  • Non-conformance management
  • Capacity planning
  • Machinery Health Monitoring
  • Poor Energy usage
  • Inflexible Manufacturing Systems

Industry 4.0 can provide a solution but adoption rates are low and there are significant barriers to entry.

The Manufactory Solution

Given the issues within the manufacturing supply chain and its quality management systems, the Manufactory Blockchain project has been created to make the latest technology easily obtainable to manufacturers and therefore enabling the factories of the future.

The original objective of Blockchain technology was to facilitate trusted fiscal transactions between any two parties without the necessity for a third party such as a bank to be involved, enabling faster and less expensive transactions. Due to the security and immutable nature of the Blockchain it also has complete integrity as the transactions are verified by the system itself.

With the advent of Industry 4.0 and Blockchain systems we will be able to build a transparent, decentralised, interconnected Supply Chain and Digital Passport system that removes any barriers to entry. 

The Manufactory vision is not just about the Blockchain but about building a decentralised manufacturing ecosystem which combines all of the benefits that Industry 4.0 can provide. Allowing users to create Decentralised Apps (dApps) that can utilise the data created by Intelligent Manufacturing Systems.

Manufactory will disrupt the manufacturing industry in its current form and be the enabler for the creation of conscious factories.
