Top 10 Shop Floor Management Solution Providers - 2018

Being a pivotal part of the manufacturing industry, developments in the shop floor influences everything from material management to operating margins. Manufacturers are quickly adopting technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning, additive manufacturing, and robotics at shop floor level operations to improve the entire manufacturing process.

The technology shift in shop floor management sprang into action with the automation of its operations by employing cognitive technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. Involvement of AI in shop floor management operations ensures efficient and precise work while algorithms of machine learning make it feasible to fine-tune and optimize the manufacturing operations. Furthermore, when coupled with real-time monitoring, machine learning renders insight into the performance of the production schedule and machine-level loads at the shop floor level. Moving down the technology road, IoT has not only made it possible for manufacturers to detect faults in shop floor operations in real-time but also made it feasible to trace the fault and operate on it. Apart from these technologies, plugs and produce approaches are being employed by manufacturers on the shop floor to increase agility. This approach enables introduction of new equipments at the shop floor level with easier integration system.
