Field service is one of your company’s most important contact points with a customer. Maintaining its quality and consistency increases the chances of getting more business and revenue opportunities.
As we’re adapting to the manufacturing landscapes given to us by the era of Industry 4.0, technologies are becoming intelligent and connected, while enabling more productive scenarios.
What if you could provide perfect value to your customer while generating zero waste? That idea is known as a lean strategy. While it’s a highly desirable goal, it’s also challenging to achieve, especially in a field such as manufacturing.
As Artificial Intelligence continues to thrive in every segment of our lives, manufacturers are starting to harness the amazing potential of digital technology to take their operations to an entirely different level.
When you think of IoT, one of the most obvious use cases is manufacturing. There’s a good reason for it – IoT can make manufacturing more efficient and safer. This post explores why IoT is a natural fit for manufacturing. Moreover, we’ll discuss what you can expect in the future.
The strategy that used to be an exception is now becoming the norm: the most innovative manufacturers in the world are leveraging Machine Learning to improve business processes through tools such as automation, intelligent forecasting and supply chain management, among others.
Working out the right inventory volumes that will both ensure the sufficient availability of working capital as well as maintain order fullfilment rates at a level that is expected by the customers has always been a crucial issue for manufacturers.
You might remember reading science fiction novels or seeing movies in which factories were operated solely by robots and humans were barely involved in the manufacturing process (if at all). Those images are no longer confined to the realm of science fiction any more.
Reaping the benefits of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is about measuring just about everything in the factory of the future. As we enter the Industry 4.0 era, where computers and automation are coming together in an entirely new way, with equipment connected remotely to systems equipped and ready with machine learning algorithms - the benefits outweigh the concerns in many facilities worldwide.
Radio frequency identification (RFID) is a form of wireless communication that uses radio waves to identify and track objects. Today, RFID tags are being attached to a variety of “things”: pharmaceutical products, clothing, identification cards, even farm animals are equipped with a tag so they can be identified beyond doubt along the whole supply chain. RFID Tracking is one of the areas that is making manufacturing intelligent.
