COVID-19 accelerated our journey to Smart Factory
The need to promote Smart Factory is driven by the pandemic
It’s been more than two years since the COVID-19 pandemic began, and there is no doubt that the pandemic has put enormous pressure on manufacturing around the world. Manufacturing enterprises have had to move millions of workers across the globe to remote platforms; implementing supply chain transformation; and improving production lines to meet customers’ demands and face difficulties during the pandemic.
In particular, this moment has made productivity increase more important than ever. Technology is a vital part of solving this question. IBM C-suite surveys show that the pandemic has accelerated the digital transition to more than 50%.
The powerful combination of automation, robots, and AI
AI-powered automation is a powerful tool that can help process data and analyze in real time, support accurate decision-making, and perform tasks more efficiently. Typically, most IoT devices used in factories are inflexible and often incapable of responding to rapidly changing environments. To solve this problem, combining robots with AI can be a powerful and groundbreaking solution.
Mobile robots are designed to help address safety concerns, operate in unreachable or dangerous areas, and provide real-time information about the state of devices so that timely actions can be taken.
Businesses need to think “openly”
However, to take full advantage of AI-based automation, businesses need to think more “openly”. Technologies such as AI, 5G, and cloud computing have been in the spotlight for the past two years, promising to support the workforce and strengthen IT infrastructure for businesses.
The recent pandemic highlighted the urgency of digital transformation through agility and resilience during pandemics. Businesses around the world have accelerated the digitization of their operations, reshaping the way work is done in the new global economy.
