Published in 2022 by SIEMENS, this article delves into the concept of smart factories and the intersection of the building envelope and the Internet of Things to facilitate it. It highlights the pivotal role of digitalization in providing data-centric solutions that interconnect physical production, operational procedures, and facility management. This integration allows for real-time enhancements in people, processes, and services, while also supporting long-term strategies. The overarching objective is to progress towards an autonomous factory model, driven by the idea that measuring outcomes through digitalized processes leads to desired results. These outcomes include safer working environments, improved energy efficiency, and heightened overall throughput across the factory.
