Reimagining Manufacturing Industry Using IoT

The significant effects of the pandemic can be seen throughout almost every industrial manufacturing companies: supply chain disruptions, issues with shipping and distribution, and staffing challenges. Now, to become once again productive and more profitable, strategies need to be reshaped, plans need to be adjusted, and questions need answers.

The transformative potential of Industry 4.0 and the digital supply chain is massive and crucial for manufacturing and the supply chain in a post-COVID-19 world. As businesses adjust to the next normal, executives are reimagining how manufacturing and its supply chains work after COVID-19.

Thankfully, IoT is here to complete the reimagination by encouraging smarter manufacturing. This disruption allows factory managers to automatically collect and analyze data to make better-informed decisions and optimize overall production. Here’s how.

Gaining Greater Visibility into Big Data

The ability to collect data from a multiplicity of sources, combined with cloud computing capabilities, makes it possible for manufacturers to slice and dice data in ways that provide them with a comprehensive understanding of their business. This is essential as they work to reevaluate planning models and develop future strategies.

Boosting Employee Safety and Operational Continuity

IoT enables remote work and collaboration, eliminating the need for noncritical employees to leave their homes. Beyond basic location-tracking mobile apps and video conference applications, advanced solutions like machine-vision algorithms and wearable technologies are also helping maintain employee safety as manufacturing operations restart.

Efficient Asset Utilization

Automated equipment monitoring and process-control systems can bolster the continuity of operations so operators no longer have to constantly monitor the whole process. These systems can further optimize operating equipment and process parameters, increasing overall efficiency for reduced cycle times and higher yield, quality, energy, and output.

Centralized Logistics Operations

Combined with digital fleet management, route optimization, and powerful analytics, IoT can raise uptime for transportation assets while optimizing the operation at the same time. For example, TOMS centralizes manufacturing logistics operations from dispatching, allocation, to managing different schedules. As a result, these centralized, automated processes will increase overall business mobility and customer satisfaction. 

The pandemic has presented business challenges on a global scale that require a new type of collaboration to address. As they begin to restart their operations in the next normal, they have an opportunity to reimagine a future with digitized, resilient operations.
