Manufacturing Industry


Globally, the manufacturing industry is one of the most dynamic fields, in terms of technology applications and utilization. The downside to this high frequency of change makes investing in technology for manufacturing a very tricky decision. In addition, widespread disruptions in technology and processes, influence business led IT transformations in the sector. Updating machinery and related skilled resources, or training existing manpower to deliver upgraded manufacturing equipment becomes a constant necessity, adding to the cost.

Updating or replacing the manpower takes global manufacturers to one of the biggest woes of the blue collar employment sector – collaboration and change management across the value chain. In addition, a growing focus on crowd sourcing and outsourcing, along with stringent quality and regulatory mandates, demand a highly responsive operational environment. It is no wonder that knowledge workers in manufacturing segment are constantly striving for actionable insights that will help eliminate overheads.

Inventory management could also eat into the profits of a manufacturing concern. Increasing stockpiles coupled with high demand volatility, necessitate the need for better cost management, or adversely affects the company’s profits.

Some of the most common but consistent problems of this sector are issues faced with waste disposal, poor energy management and, production downtime due to breakdown of machines and control systems. Over time, these problems have grown to create serious repercussions on the environment and become hurdles to delivery of consistent KPIs.

The emerging trends of sustainability and lean compliance are demanding integrated automation, intelligent human machine collaboration and seamless operations.




The adoption of IoT (Internet of Things) has made a significant difference to the manner in which technology can be utilized to increase efficiency, ensure seamless communication and hence add humongous value to operational processes. The manufacturing industry can also benefit from this new concept, and more so when coupled with M2M technologies applications.

Now, it is possible to establish remote communication among operations and process control environments. There is no doubt that in this age of volatile demand lines, it is imperative that this production is carried out with intuitive planning aids. The emerging trends of interconnected manufacturing (M2M) where machines can talk to one another can help improve productivity and regulate manufacturing plans, thus reducing wasteful stockpiling.

The key to an efficient manufacturing line is the ability to maintain almost , if not real time operations monitoring, with predictive functionalities and intuitive resource tracking , that will not only ensure better production planning but also more efficient waste management. By cutting down silos and bringing machines and applications on a single intelligent platform solution that will ensure both machines and operations work in tandem for most optimal efficiency, production can be made a planned process that can even run in accordance to demand recorded at a remote location. Thus, an overall optimized production process that helps in many ways to reduce waste, can be created. M2M, with the support of IoT has the capability to deliver exactly that.

This technology solution helps bring down production waste, reduce excess manufacturing (by producing on-demand), thus helping manufacturing units function in a much more economical manner.

Aggregating the control system data and seamless integration of discrete operations, peripheral services and system driven supervisory, also lead to better risk and crisis management, while ensuring strong communication networks that enable a timely, business focused decision making process.

By implementing smart solutions and applying due diligence in the entire framework of a manufacturing process, it is now possible to ensure more efficiency and save costs while sustaining competitive advantage within growing marketplace.

This could be just the solution to enable leadership and strategy teams analyze the priceless data available to gather deep insights for all customers facing as well as internal processes.
