Microsoft knows manufacturing
For more than a decade, Microsoft technology has been transforming the manufacturing industry, creating intelligent systems that revolutionize productivity, increase efficiency and drive higher profits for industrial automation, oil and gas, high-technology and electronics, pharmaceutical, chemical and utility systems. By monitoring equipment performance in real time, instantly and securely, an intelligent system based on Windows Embedded can provide greater ability to control costs, reduce down time and more effectively manage operations. By analyzing data from sales information, a Microsoft intelligent system can help sales forces drive competitive pricing proposals based on market, competitor and customer conditions. And with industry devices delivering actionable data, and a natural user interface to help workers make sense of it all, intelligent systems based on Windows Embedded are providing manufacturers with insight that would otherwise remain out of reach—around the plant floor and around the world.
