So what is Smarter Manufacturing? You must be wondering why am I even talking about Smarter Manufacturing here, but I have a reason. While the manufacturing world has transformed itself in totality, there is a technology element that has powered this transformation which we, more often than not, tend to less focus on. Smarter Manufacturing in simpler terms refers to ways in which manufacturers around the world could do more with the help of advanced technologies as tools to incrementally or dramatically improve processes and approaches.
Should you be more interested in learning about Smarter Manufacturing, stay tuned in to this group. Perhaps, this article by Dave Miller on Smarter Manufacturing: Six Opportunities Manufacturers Have To Pounce Upon would be a good read until I see you with my next article soon. Dave outlines 6 opportunities for manufacturers -
- Manufacturing Intelligence
- Predictive Analytics in Manufacturing
- Production Quality Management
- Integrated Scheduling and Operations Execution
- Manufacturing Visibility and Visualization
- Manufacturing Network Monitoring
These are really key areas and opportunities that Dave talks about. Perhaps, in my following articles, I'll want to talk about my perspectives on each of these opportunities and more.
Till I see you next, have a smart time!
