Xoriant (a ChrysCapital company), a leading global engineering services company with strong expertise in digital engineering and emerging technologies, today announced an industry-academia collaboration with the College of Engineering Pune Technological University and PDF Solutions to support COEP’s Smart Manufacturing Innovation Software Lab. The purpose of the Lab is to provide early access and experience with industry-proven solutions focused on digital engineering and smart manufacturing to create a more future-ready workforce.
With a rapidly transforming semiconductor industry, the Smart Manufacturing Innovation Software Lab is intended to enable COEP Tech students to gain firsthand experience on industrial manufacturing projects using cloud, robotics, artificial intelligence, data, and analytics.
PDF Solutions, a leading provider of unified data and cloud analytics spanning the semiconductor ecosystem to achieve smart manufacturing goals, intends to provide its Cimetrix Sapience software platform for Smart Manufacturing for use in the lab by COEP Tech students. The Cimetrix Sapience platform connects factory equipment and includes a growing ecosystem of analytics and AI/ML-enabled applications. With the Cimetrix Sapience platform available in COEP Tech’s Lab, students will be able to engineer solutions for leading-edge manufacturing use cases in a digital twin environment before they even begin their careers.
Leveraging its three decades of software engineering pedigree, Xoriant will build a data integration platform on top of the Cimetrix Sapience platform for the Smart Manufacturing Innovation Software Lab.
