Technologies giving competitive edge in the Manufacturing sector

Following the “consumerization of IT” trend, improved user interfaces for manufacturing information systems installed on mobile solutions. This will allow leading companies to reimagine the manufacturing process from initial concept to end customer support. Ubiquitous connectivity allows everyone who is part of the process to use a ruggedized phone or tablet that is equipped with accessories to scan barcodes, read RFID signals or even geolocate items anywhere on the floor. Improved (“consumerized”) user interfaces have the potential to reduce errors and speed up the process – both of which will lead to lower production costs. Also, the rise of 3D printing is already greatly reducing both the time and cost to develop prototypes. While there is a clear ROI, the real value of this technology is getting our products to market faster than ever.

Technology trends Impacting Enterprise Business Environment and Manufacturing Industry

Cloud computing will be extremely disruptive to the manufacturing industry at large. As our core automation, warehousing and distribution capabilities continue their march toward the cloud, improved data interfaces and communication mechanisms will lead to dramatic shifts in the way we interact with our suppliers, partners and customers. Technology vendors are expected to embrace the improved integration offered by the cloud to develop tools that will allow us to share real-time inventory, QA and shipment tracking date to anyone, anywhere in the world.
