Smart products are more popular than ever. From smart watches to smart security systems, consumers have embraced these interconnected products that seamlessly deliver a variety of functions and capabilities, all customizable based on the data these devices capture about user experiences and preferences in today’s Internet of Things world. Similarly, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technology is a key driver in the move to smart manufacturing environments for streamlining and connecting steps in the manufacturing process.

Going paperless with visual solutions. Paper-based processes are highly error-prone and inefficient when it comes to ensuring the correct parts are located and selected manually by operators. 

Analytics. With the adoption of AI and big data, there are more analytics than ever before to monitor and measure manufacturing processes and progress. This data can help digitally transform the factory floor and can lead to more informed decisions on flow and process in the warehouse.  Even more importantly, this technology can bring a real-time responsiveness and transparency to what are today “black box” manufacturing practices.

Key Trends. Additional trends in Smart Manufacturing will be explored such as Cobots, Edge Devices and Cloud Software. You will learn where each is currently at on the adoption curve and the deployment impact, they bring to the factory floor.
