New technologies are enabling manufacturers to have a renewed focus on product innovation, building customer loyalty, and driving new revenue streams. For instance, the combination of industrial robotics and Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming the way manufacturing is carried out. While robotics is enabling automation, IoT is bridging the gap between Operation Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT), making manufacturing plants much more aware of the floor data. On the other hand, bringing the ERP data to mobile devices is driving cost efficiency, enhanced performance, faster operations and better resource management for manufacturers.
Exploiting technologies like mobile, 3-D printing, IoT, big data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, the technology solution providers are creating futuristic solutions to help manufacturers reap the benefits of streamlined manufacturing. To help manufacturers find the right shop floor management solution providers, a distinguished selection panel comprising of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, industry analysts, and the Manufacturing Technology Insights’ editorial board has reviewed and shortlisted the companies that bring forth innovative solutions combined with latest manufacturing strategies.
The panel has weighed the support for analytics, integration capabilities and robustness besides the quality of service above all else, before cataloging the finalists. We present to you Manufacturing Technology Insights’ Top 10 Shop Floor Management Solution Providers - 2017.
