The pandemic has exposed inefficiencies and disrupted the fragile manufacturing ecosystem. If manufacturers are to survive a wider and more acute range of disruptive events in the future, they need to break free from the conventional approach and embrace the technology of the future.
On the outset, the pandemic has wreaked havoc the world over. But for entrepreneurial manufacturers, it is nothing but an opportunity in disguise; i.e. a global need to transform the way we do things and explore our manufacturing potential. This includes eliminating inefficiencies once and for all and investing in technologies where there’s a goldmine of value.
In short, everything from automation to smart analytics and cloud services is the future of the factory floor. And thanks to the pandemic, that future is here.
Suffice to say, India and China have already taken the lead in this digital transformation. Their initiatives and investment flows have started trickling in towards envisioning a future of smart factories with Industry 4.0 technologies.
China, for example, has dedicated the Made in China 2025 program solely to digitally transform its manufacturing sector. India too, is adapting an aggressive transition towards a smart factory ecosystem through the SAMARTH-Udyog Bharat 4.0 program.
If one must remain competitive in a global scale or maintain current market shares, it only makes sense to join in on the race too – or risk getting left behind. Time is ticking, yet the possibilities are endless.
To put this into perspective, smart manufacturing systems hold the key to overcome the most pressing challenges attached to conventional manufacturing. It offers companies the Holy Grail opportunity to monitor production and plant operations in real time, thereby allowing them to cut time lags, overcome quality control issues, and bottlenecks in raw material procurement among others.
In a post-COVID world where funds are tight and investment flows are restricted, manufacturers can no longer afford to overlook these persistent challenges. Let smart manufacturing products and solutions created under the close supervision of industry’s leading engineers eliminate them for you.
RES.Q QMS for example, is a cloud-based quality management solution for decision makers. It ensures no time is wasted as it allows a 360-degree view of the production floor. It integrates real-time data capture and analytics to eliminate reporting time lags, enable faster, data-driven decision-making, reduce wastage, and improve your overall cut-to-ship ratio.
Industry’s favorite Res.Q MI however, provides the landmark for data-driven decision making. It is built as a machine management solution that leverages on the technology of NFC to provide management and maintenance teams with real-time insight to their entire machine management process. It tracks down time, mechanic response time, alerts you to breakdowns and curates its own auto-generated service calendar.
Smart manufacturing products and solutions, in short, take the inefficiency out of the equation. The ROI is well worth the investment. Let the numbers speak for you.
Technology is no longer a choice. It’s a necessity to navigate the post-pandemic world.
