1. INTRODUCTION Recently digital transformation (DX) initiatives have been increasing in the industrial world. It is not something special, but many of them are already implemented in our daily lives. Examples include cloud-connected smart devices and music and movie subscription services.

After digitalization, it is expected to improve productivity and create new businesses by utilizing the data obtained from the digitalization. In addition, simulation and analysis using data will eliminate the need for trial manufacture, which has been done in the past, and equipment settings can be set automatically according to the equipment and environment (automation and autonomization of equipment). If these are realized, the number of man-hours spent on work and the reduction of waste will be solved, leading to sustainable business.
