Get inside the new world of Manufacturing:

Conquer the mountain of data

New manufacturing opportunities has also led to the creation of various challenges related to throughput and shop floor efficiencies and in order to counter the aforementioned issues companies continue to focus on disruptive technologies such as Big Data Analytics, robotics and IoT. External factors such as competition and changing customer preferences continue to drive product innovation and flexibility in the associated supply chains, which, in effect force the industry to become more agile and resilient.

According to IDC worldwide predictions:

  • By 2017, 60% of Global Manufacturers Will Use Analytics to Sense and Analyze Data from Connected Products and Manufacturing and Optimize Increasingly Complex Portfolios of Products
  • By 2018, Global Manufacturers Will Invest in Analytics to Support Unified Customer Life-cycle Orientation from Sales through Service; 40% Will Achieve Superior “Perfect Service Levels.”

As the technology adoption continues to increase, manufacturing entities will look at innovative means by which their existing business models can be revamped and derive revenue based on incremental value creation. The presence of sensors and remote data transmitters will pave the way for the growth of predictive and proactive equipment maintenance, thus providing a mix of product and service options which in the long run would aid in higher customer loyalty and stickiness. The data collected in real-time from the point of sale and the various nodes of the manufacturing value chain can be fed into the existing supply chain models for faster resolution of associated logistics related risks and hence can reduce the overall supply chain network costs.
