ABB Ability™ for Manufacturing


Finding the right balance between speed and quality presents a difficult challenge for manufacturers, especially in mission-critical and highly regulated industries. But when you find it, you can achieve a significant competitive advantage.

Key Challenges

Key Challenges

Optimize speed, quality and precision

Today’s manufacturing can involve extreme agility – making thousands of different variations of products, using materials and ingredients that are delivered “just in time,” and conforming to highly restrictive government regulations and customer expectations.

The task seems impossible. The shop needs to be up and running when? How is anyone supposed to meet that timeline when the equipment needs reprogramming? And by the way, the floor is already tied up with another project.

What’s needed is a way to get ahead of the game, right now.
