Top IoT Trends for Manufacturing Sector
Scope for Manufacturing Customized ProductsCustomers are looking for products which are manufactured keeping in mind their niche requirements. Manufacturers are doing everything they can to meet such high expectations, but this means an increase in the cost of production for the manufacturers. But with IoT, the cost of production doesn’t rise exponentially. Manufacturers will be able to adjust to the niche consumer demands by manufacturing products in smaller quantities without accelerating the cost.
Ease in Maintaining QualityAs more manufacturing machines are becoming computerized, efficiency and flexibility will increase, and there will be a complete sea-change in the way consumer goods are mass produced. With the help of intelligent machines, manufacturers will be able to detect faults in real time and improve the system before the problem escalates. Take for example a machine installed in a clothes manufacturing unit. Without the interference of IoT, checking the machine for faults would be a time-taking exercise and something that is seldom done. But with the help of Internet of Things, it can be regularly checked when the machine was last taken for maintenance.
Increased Transparency in OperationsAnother trend we can expect to become popular in the manufacturing sector with the increased usage of IoT is the level of transparency stakeholder will see. While production will remain within the four walls of the manufacturing unit, several other things will move out. The software used in the unit will move to the cloud thus enabling manufacturers, suppliers and also customers to view how things are being produced. They can view everything from the status of order, to see progress in real-time, inventory capacity, equipment and so on. That’s not all. Since we are talking about smart products, there will be constant customer-manufacturer interaction that will improve product performance, support, and maintenance.
