The business world is experiencing significant technological advancements in nearly every industry, including manufacturing. Manufacturers are implementing robots that perform assembly and material handling tasks, as well as dangerous or repetitive tasks. Remote performance monitoring sensors are also being used to track manufacturing cycles and identify possible maintenance issues, while computerized maintenance management systems are decreasing the need for on-site personnel.
The combination of IoT technology and artificial intelligence (AI) is also helping technicians assess equipment performance. By predicting when a piece of equipment may malfunction or break down, AI enables predictive maintenance, which manufacturers worldwide are already implementing.
