Applying AI to the Manufacturing Industry

Applying AI to the Manufacturing Industry

artificial intelligence and production lines
Over the past few years, the manufacturing industry has benefited by using cyber-physical systems to make production lines more efficient. By using artificial intelligence, companies are able to use systems that govern themselves to help minimize downtime and predict failures. There is the potential to enhance and extend the capabilities of humans and help production lines achieve more at a faster rate. Find out more with these different ways to integrate AI into your production line.

Transforming the Manufacturing Industry

The 2018 Annual Manufacturing Report discovered that 92% of senior manufacturing executives believe that ‘Smart Factory’ digital technology (including AI) helps increase productivity levels and helps influence staff to work smarter and more efficiently. Several new developments have also helped AI to cross into the mainstream, some of these being cloud computing, big data, and improved machine learning algorithms. Although many smart machines are on the shop floor, the use of AI and big data will soon move into the areas of shipping raw materials, weather prediction or even maintenance of the produced product.

How AI Affects Business Operation & Strategy

When it comes to integrating artificial intelligence into the manufacturing sector, a smart factory needs to be set up. Your business operations need to be networked, data has to be taken from the production line and quality control must be put in place. Once put in place, manufacturers will benefit from more informed decisions at each stage of the production process. In order to survive, companies need to become digital companies. When AI is put in place to detect errors on the production line, the data will then be fed to the cloud to verify and then the defective part will be immediately removed and a replacement ordered. By having a real-time problem-solving AI in place, manufacturing companies can save millions on recalls, lost business or necessary repairs. Eventually, AI will evolve into fraud prevention, predictive ordering, and opportunity assessment. All of these aspects will help improve time, productivity and cost benefits.

Artificial Intelligence and Information Technology

The IT sector deals with computers, software and data transmissions, which can play a heavy role in Artificial Intelligence. When it comes to securing confidential data, having data security is a must for AI. With the help of algorithms, AI can use the necessary security to identify potential threats and data breaches and offer the needed provisions and solutions to resolve issues.
