The Tech Trends of Manufacturing

Technology is expanding into every part of our lives, and it is the same in the lives of manufacturers. In fact, advancements in automation and artificial intelligence (AI) are transforming the reliability of manufacturing processes. Gartner research reveals some of the top technological trends of 2022:

Hyperautomation allows managers to evaluate various processes in order to better automate them effectively. This practice helps manufacturers to automate processes from operations to IT for more efficiency.

Autonomic systems continuously update algorithms to better meet the changes in its environment. Because this software is capable of autonomic functionality, it is flexible enough to optimize its processes to improve its reliability and efficiency.

Generative Design helps to make the engineering of new products a quicker process. It supplements engineers design processes to focus more on manufacturability. This generative design assistance results in new products that require fewer processes.

IIoT and Predictive Processes

IIoT, the Industrial Internet of Things, and predictive analytics has been a trend for a number of years and is on the way to being the baseline for businesses that wish to stay competitive.

The “smart factory” combines internet connectivity with manufacturing machines, condition monitoring devices, and other equipment is becoming the standard to implement smart technology, IIoT optimizes reliability in the manufacturing environment to minimize production downtime and streamline operating costs.
