Benefits of smart manufacturing and how to successfully implement it
Improve quality and productivity
Quality management and continuous improvement techniques can only provide limited outcomes when the information relied upon are limited and not available in real-time. Manufacturers are leveraging embedded equipment intelligence to monitor most product specifications in real-time, either from a customer or regulatory perspective. Apart from this, they’re also using this intelligence to address product defects and variations, verify whether quality goals are met, and improve customer satisfaction. Embedded intelligence, when used to improve control and transparency of manufacturing processes creates new opportunities to improve productivity.

Enhance decision-making process
Companies in the manufacturing industry must consider upgrading their existing technologies in order to attain enhanced productivity. This involves reconciling dissimilar data sources with the current IT systems, extracting the data from smart manufacturing technologies, and then converting that data into actionable insights. Manufacturers that have adhered to these steps will be able to optimize their assets, improve their responsiveness to changing customer demands, refine workflows, and reduce inventory holding.
Safeguard against threats
Availability of larger data sets and more connection points can introduce greater risk to manufacturing companies in the forms of internal and external threats. Cyber attackers are looking beyond corporate servers to target operations technologies. Furthermore decades-old devices and controls of companies in the manufacturing sector can be more susceptible to breaches through both malicious attacks and unintentional employee actions. No single security technology or methodology will be enough in this complex threat landscape. Instead, manufacturers must use a comprehensive approach that establishes security safeguards at different layers to stop threats on multiple fronts.
