  1. An Amazon CloudFront web interface deploys into an Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket configured for web hosting.

  2. An Amazon Cognito user pool allows the solution’s administrators to register users and groups using the web interface.

  3. AWS AppSync GraphQL APIs and AWS Amplify power the web interface. Amazon DynamoDB tables store the factory data.

  4. An AWS IoT rule engine helps users monitor manufacturing workstations or devices for events, and then routes the events to the correct engineer for resolution in real-time.

  5. Authorized users can interact with and receive notifications from this solution. An AWS Lambda function and Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) send email messages and SMS notifications.

  6. Issues created, acknowledged, and closed in the web interface are recorded and updated using AWS AppSync and DynamoDB.

  7. The AWS AppSync GraphQL APIs can be called directly with HTTP POST requests.
