How 5G Can Transform Indonesian Manufacturing

Indonesian manufacturing’s vital role in bringing essential products to market has been highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Its slowness in early pandemic time showed how easily supply chains can be disrupted, creating a ripple effect nationally. Thus, manufacturers are looking to technology to keep sites up and running with high efficiency as to increase agility in tough times.

Since Telkomsel’s 5G connectivity is up and running, let’s see how it can be used in the manufacturing industry by looking at what other countries have done.

1. Augmented Reality For Troubleshooting

R&D personels can spend up to half their work time looking for information, instructions, even historical data when troubleshooting a product. In order to speed up this process, a factory in Estonia developed smart glasses with augmented reality that puts the information right on top of the physical product. Having fast and accessible data right on their hands will help employees to spend more time on solving the problems rather than just research.

2. Automation For Operational Efficiency

Implementing 5G IoT (Internet of Things) allows a whole factory in Nanjing, China to be connected to each other, from different machines, the products, the monitoring equipment, the robots, even down to the smallest screwdriver. This enables a transparent ecosystem, a digital twin on the cloud, where users can visualize how every part is working with each other. It made it easier to manage maintenance, increase operational efficiency, better the product design and build quality, as well as control costs. True enough, the first year showed a 50 % return on investment, and breakeven is projected within two years.

3. Computer Vision For Quality Assurance

Another factory has been using 5G to power computer vision cameras above their packing lines. The camera can match the order data with whatever is in the package. The IoT system then validates if it has the right materials and flags it if it’s not. Having this double check system happening in real time as the box is being packed makes it that much more efficient. The same camera can also be used to monitor the safety of workers by ensuring the use of safe conduct including wearing protective equipments.

A lot can be achieved when 5G and IoT are combined. How do you plan to implement this connectivity at your factories? Consult any ideas with our IoT Experts right here.
