This application lets you explore the AWS manufacturing reference architecture by navigating an interactive "map" of important AWS Cloud services to see how they might apply in a factory environment.
Use the +/- buttons, mouse wheel, or pinch-to-zoom feature of your device to adjust the zoom level. Drag the map to move the view. Select a component to learn more.
Select the "Guided" tab for an end-to-end explanation of the reference architecture.
This guided tour is audio based. Please be sure your audio is enabled.
Use the arrow buttons to jump forward and backward between topics. Select the "Interactive" tab to explore the architecture on your own.
For the best user experience, full screen mode is recommended.
