Smart manufacturing helps businesses become more adaptable by helping them build a digital foundation that includes the digitalization of their manufacturing operations as well as their integrated product development, business, and production processes.
Many manufacturing facilities are now coping with (legacy) installed base applications, despite the fact that smart manufacturing holds great potential and will be the road that all manufacturers must follow in the future. It poses the following puzzling issues for plant managers: What is the most effective route for me to move to smart manufacturing? How can I start making the switch to smart manufacturing?
Given that Smart Manufacturing is the hottest new trend, adoption of related technologies like Big Data, Advanced Analytics, and the Internet of Things will probably provide challenges. This might be connected to having the proper set of skills, knowledge, and experience. However, early adopters’ weaknesses can be improved upon. Large worldwide manufacturers have improved their capacity to implement Smart Production practises within their organisations, notably in the field of high precision manufacturing.
There are various possible starting points for an organization’s journey toward smart manufacturing, depending on its priorities and maturity level. Therefore, creating a strategy and road map for smart manufacturing would be the first step.
