IT driven Smart manufacturing | PCMC news | latest news in pune

"Come, Make in India" Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave a clarion call to the world in his lady Independence Day address, welcoming worldwide and Indian firms to set up assembling bases in India. 

The legislature is finding a way to expel key obstructions confronted by Indian makers, similar to motivations, work laws, arrive acquisitions and so forth. In any case, one angle which is over looked in this computerized time of associated world, eCommerce and long range informal communication is the buyer conduct, which has changed definitely. 

This calls for changes in the way assembling is done today. In the course of recent decades, producing has developed from a more work concentrated arrangement of mechanical procedures (customary assembling) to a complex arrangement of data innovation based procedures (propelled Smart assembling). 

Selection of new advanced innovations can without much of a stretch decrease costs by 20 – 30% by enhanced capital and work use which will make 'Made in India' items focused. The requirement for a cloud based IT driven assembling stage for use by Indian SME producers who can't manage the cost of putting resources into IT apparatuses, to make them aggressive is talked about in this paper. 

New Age Consumer – A carefully empowered buyer in the Connected world 

Buyers are driving the "speed of business" in assembling today. Obtaining designs have been totally re-imagined by the broad accessibility of data through informal organizations and its quick transmission by means of a tremendous scope of new cell phones. With more than 7 billion dynamic portable associations, customers today are all around educated about market items, costs, and elements. They are brand skeptic and analyze, select, or dispose of numerous items with only a tap on their tablet. They are progressively anxious as well: they would prefer not to hold up and they simply need it now.

Through innovation, for example, request detecting, fabricating knowledge, stack adjusting, coordinated assembling procedures and inventory network administration, it is conceivable to address today's purchasers and create items in India which are comprehensively aggressive. Having comprehended the requirement for change, we need to take a gander at a portion of the zones which require changes. 

1. Advanced Integrated Production Planning and Shop Floor Control: 

At present many assembling ventures utilize ERP frameworks to a specific degree while a large portion of the assembling operations like Scheduling, Maintenance, crude material control and SCM capacities are finished utilizing spread sheets , work cards and messages or, best case scenario with remain solitary instruments, with no continuous information stream crosswise over capacities . Most assembling organizations have not accomplished an entire incorporation of data stream along the operation procedure. This extraordinarily influences the profitability and expands the assembling cost. By incorporating data stream utilizing propelled producing IT apparatuses amid all means of operations, the perceivability required to legitimately deal with the end-to-end procedures can be accomplished. 

2. Store network Visibility: 

It is a key thing which helps in controlling the crude material and last item accessibility at the ideal time and cost. Throughout the years, SCM has seen sending of various different computerized devices, making a siloed framework that mutilates end-to-end perceivability. An incorporated instrument can help connect these availability holes. 

3. Cloud Based ERP: 

Many organizations are currently beginning to move far from utilizing As a part of house ERP frameworks to interface with the outside world and depend on cloud-based business arranges. Interfacing with their exchanging accomplices in the cloud enables organizations to share the greater part of that cleverness produced on the industrial facility floor amid the assembling procedure with the whole esteem chain continuously. It's as yet far for some organizations, yet some have as of now began the excursion. 

4. Web-based social networking Influence and Data Analytics: 

Web-based social networking significantly impact the customer buy choices and thus examination of this immense information is important to roll out the obliged improvements to the item to perpetually changing shopper desires. 

5. 3D Printing: 

3D printing (or 'added substance assembling') is a potential plan of action disruptor and market-creator. The cost and productivity advantages are clear – the capacity to deliver little parcel or exceedingly redid parts in an 'on-request' setting. Reconciliation of added substance producing, into existing production network, develops capacity and empowers to tap quickly rising open doors 

The path Forward: 

The appropriation of IT driven assembling, will require extra interests in IT apparatuses and preparing which numerous SMEs and even huge assembling undertakings are as yet hesitant to do. Consequently government ought to turn out with preparing programs at financed rates to make the SMEs comprehend the advantages of IT driven assembling. 

Government ought to likewise converse with driving IT apparatus sellers to give a cloud based Digital Manufacturing stage to SMEs at a sensible cost and give motivating forces to organizations receiving IT driven assembling. Then again with the solid nearness of IT administrations organizations in India with mastery in Digital endeavour arrangements, Government ought to empower building an "Indian Digital Manufacturing Platform" with numerous assembling related modules considering the different prerequisites material to Indian conditions. This stage can be facilitated in cloud and can be utilized by Indian assembling organizations at an ostensible cost to make them aggressive. 

With Indian government's arranged billions of dollars speculations to empower nationwide rapid network, it is simpler to receive IT driven assembling even in remote places and make items which are internationally focused.

Evolution of VoLTE to 5G | PCMC Times | Pimpri News


The number of mobile phone users in India is approximate 1.03 billion as of April 2016. Considering that the limited bands available for mobile communication, catering the needs of 1 billion plus people is a challenge. The circuit switch network calling provides the reliability but lacks the flexibility and bandwidth efficiency.

All cellular operators around the world want to handle maximum cellular communication traffic with a limited bandwidth. The rising demand of mobile phones has also indicated towards a trend towards high rise in demand of data services. IP switched network provided the solution of being able to voice and data in an efficient way. VoLTE is the technology which enables voice over LTE (Long Term Evolution).LTE is a 4G technology, an upgrade over HSDPA+ which supported circuit switched for voice and packet switching technology for data services. Within 4G, VoLTE supports data and voice both over packet switching technology.
Although 4G is relatively new to Indian Telecom Industry, 3GPP has already focussing on 5G and has already outlined the potential standards towards 5G era. The transformation to 5G from 4G would be planned and gradual .The plan is to have a 5G ready platform ready by 2020 for a full launch .5G is a next generation technology which will not only provide a higher speed but a single integrative platform which will support to M2M along with scalability for it.
The digital divide in India is being bridged by the Indian Government using Digital India programme. Under this plan all the machines could be connected to each other on one compatible high speed platform. With IIOT (Industrial Internet of Things) already being implemented by different industries like manufacturing, IoT for daily applications doesn’t seem distant. Smart factories promise to bring efficiency and synchronisation at a grander scale.
The challenges involved in upgrading to 5G involve an extensive rollout of VoLTE assuring a pan-India coverage. It means covering all 6 lakh villages in India with every single mobile phone user being able to access VoLTE. In order to achieve that India needs a 4G ecosystem which includes availability of VoLTE handsets at affordable prices. The rollout plan must involve 3C’s , Connectivity, Content and Customer base. An ecosystem with the 3Cs will be able to sustain and evolve to 5G smoothly.
To entice the customer to buy ones services a cellular operator needs to go beyond limits and provide content for the customers which would be provided through their LTE network.In other way a customer should get a one SIM solution for all the services one expects from a high speed broadband.
Although India’s biggest mobile operator was the first one to rollout 4G services in 2012
Connectivity happens to be a big challenge in a geo-diverse country like India which has hills, plains as well as terrains. A well laid optical fibre could be the only solution to assure connectivity of all regions in India. With government regulations and higher laying costs, the ROI would only be achieved when there is a higher subscription to their services. Having maximum number of users on VoLTE would ensure an efficient use of wireless bandwidth as well as the extensively laid optical fibre network.
India’s largest mobile operator was the first one to rollout LTE services in 2012 in 4 cities. But they did not plan to provide voice services over their LTE networks. It was one of India’s largest conglomerates which identified the opportunity and scope in 2010 and acquired a company holding 2300MHz BWA (Bandwidth Wireless Access) license. They started with a plan to lay down 2.7 lakh km of optical fibre across the country. The layout was done strategically, different from the existing network laid by other companies connecting areas to each other which weren’t initially.
The new ambitious entrant took time to be thorough with their network rollout before opening the services to all. By targeting a 90% market share in India, the company plans to be the pioneer when it will come to 5G services planned to be up for use in 2020.
The company even used biometric based e-verification process, first of its kind to provide their SIM card after their soft launch in October 2016.The AADHAR card link up fastened the verification process making it easier for customers to acquire their services in the first place. This method clarified how serious the company is in implementation of Digital India which has a vision to digitise all social services and making it easier for people especially in rural areas.
The evolution from VoLTE to 5G won’t be an easy transition but one operator from India has set its site on 2020 and has been executing their plans accordingly.With the way things are going it seems India will be one of the first nations to launch 5G services with the support of one visionary cellular operator who had foreseen the future.

So the game combines a beloved franchise which a lot of millennial grew up with (Pokemon), takes advantage of an emerging technology many are curious about (augmented reality).

But these are not just the only factors why PokemonGo became such a huge sensation. Most people started playing because they saw their friends playing it and it is relatively easy to learn and also there was something new about it. A distraction from real world.

One of the many reasons why it got so big in a small time because it used Bitcoin to grab more eyeballs. Bitcoin is like a virtual currency and bitcoin saw the opportunity to utilise this phenomenon and they did. So, people also started using bitcoin for it thus it helped both parties earn money. And let's not forget that Brexit happened that time so people needed a distraction.

But ironically this game also did not last long. Faded as quickly as it became popular.

What could be the reasons?
