The organization is controlled through a centrally driven supervisory computer control system. This system controls the data, which is stored in company owned manufacturing data base, through a relational database management system (RDBMS). The control system, mainly manages the data traffic between the data base and the machines, material handling system, tool management system, load/unload stations, gantry robots, inspection stations, chip removal system, part cleaning system and more importantly CAD/CAM department and the central database to control part programming traffic between the central database and the machine control units. The management of the organization has now wants leap up to become a smart factory by implementing Industry 4.0 and IIoT philosophies. The machines and the other equipment used within the organization are Industry 4.0 compatible systems and are very suitable for a smart factory environment.
