Amazon Web Services (AWS) has unveiled an immersive showcase to demonstrate its AI-enabled industrial services at this year’s Hannover Messe, taking place this week in Hanover, Germany. 

The company demonstrated its AWS for Industrial tech in a video depicting a fictitious e-bike manufacturer, “AWSome e-Bikes,” using robots to assemble its bikes and AWS solutions to manage and monitor production. 

According to a statement, the manufacturer used AWS tools, including a “supply chain-focused” generative AI assistant, to overcome inventory shortages, production challenges and quality control issues.

“By harnessing AWS’s supply chain capabilities, AWSome e-Bikes is able to forecast demand accurately, align inventory, and enhance supplier collaboration,” AWS said in a statement. “AWS Industrial IoT offerings further enable real-time operational data monitoring, enhancing visibility into metrics like overall equipment effectiveness for continuous improvement.” 

The supply-chain generative AI assistant showcased in the video is powered by the Amazon Q chatbot and designed to provide manufacturers with greater insight across their networks, helping forecast and align supply with demand.

Additionally, AWS said its purpose-built services for AI and machine learning help detect anomalies, predict equipment failures and automate inspection processes.
