Top 10 Shop Floor Solution Companies - 2021

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that the shop floor is the backbone of the manufacturing industry, as that is where the production happens. That being said, there are several challenges that current shop floors must overcome. For instance, data visibility is one of the major issues, which makes it hard for supervisors to stay updated about the ongoing processes. It is necessary that the shop floor team are able to access these data for better decision-making. Secondly, appropriate scheduling is also required to avoid delays on the shop floor.

Fortunately, there are several technologies that can help manufacturers to manage a shop floor successfully and constructively. Whether is through AI, IoT, and cloud, or the combination of these technologies, shop floors can not only gain complete visibility over the work processes, but also eliminate all inefficiencies and facilitate seamless coordination. These technologies can also be integrated with the existing ERP solutions on the shop floor, leveraging the existing information to adapt and scale into a smart floor. While IoT can connect all equipment on the shop floor and create a pipeline for data flow, AI can be leveraged to analyze the information and generate insights to enhance operations. Besides, the insights can also be used for scheduling and conducting predictive maintenance operations.

At this juncture, there are a variety of shop floor solution providers available in the market that cater to the different business use cases. To help organizations choose the shop floor solution providers that best fit their requirements, Manufacturing Technology Insights has compiled a list of the top 10 shop floor solution providers in 2021.
