Reinventing Manufacturing in the Digital Age
For manufacturers working with legacy equipment—designed for the age of mass production—keeping pace can be a struggle. And as experienced workers retire, the difficulties associated with transferring their expertise to new hires are creating a knowledge gap. New technologies—in analytics, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things and 5G communications—offer a way forward. But they also bring challenges in the form of increased security risk and complexity. A fourth industrial revolution is under way. Manufacturers know that to thrive, they will need to evolve into agile, connected enterprises that use information analytics, along with human talent and machinery, to deliver products and services. And they need help getting there.
Data-driven, smart, connected technologies can help bridge the gap. Smart equipment that leverages real-time data analytics and autonomous capabilities, and connects to inventory, workers and smart buildings, holds the promise of transforming all aspects of manufacturing. Intel and its ecosystem partners offer smart equipment and supply chain solutions that enable process optimization; connected next-generation workforce tools that lead to improved efficiency and safety; and smart building innovations that help lower TCO. These technologies make it possible for manufacturers to produce more customized products at higher volumes while containing costs. In addition, they provide business insights that open new revenue streams, including new business models offering products as a service. Trusted, scalable, cost-effective, smart solutions from Intel equip manufacturers with the agility and intelligence they need to meet the challenges of the Industry 4.0 era.
What will your business look like in the next five years? It's a question that's worth thinking about not because of growth targets and shareholder expectations but because of the likelihood that few business sectors will look anything like they do right now.
