MINZ: At The Forefront Of Smart Factory Automation

Top 10 Smart Factory Solution Companies in APAC – 2021

One thing COVID-19 has exposed is the significant weaknesses in supply chains. To survive global disruptions in the future, today’s manufacturers need to move to more flexible and digitally-enabled manufacturing and supply chain models. With physical-distancing measures still ongoing for the foreseeable future, robotics and automation are critical necessities in the post-pandemic manufacturing industry.

Under the new normal, manufacturers will need to ensure their investments enable outputs to align with evolving customer expectations to survive in the digital economy. To that end, businesses must invest in digital solutions such as AI/ML, IoT to keep their customers engaged from anywhere. For example, by attaching a sensor to a shipping container, manufacturing firms can verify the shipment’s geographical position and confirm that the handlers uphold environmental requirements and do not mishandle delicate pieces. Having such data equips businesses to set expectations for customers and have peace of mind concerning parts or whole products reaching their destinations in good condition.

Industrial robots that can help boost output, streamline processes, and work continuously without breaks will become crucial elements of manufacturing companies’ adoption processes. Furthermore, there will be increased adoption of data insights and analytics that help bring strategic decision-making and operational adjustments into real-time. Across locations and supply chains, manufacturers can use data analytics to build redundancy into workforces and supplier bases and pivot rapidly to make new products (including masks or hand sanitizer) to preserve the business and restore revenues.

Now is the time to lead, protect workers, safeguard jobs, and build an adaptable manufacturing industry that responds to any and every challenge in the dynamic global marketplace. To assist companies in finding the right smart manufacturing partner to achieve this, Manufacturing Technology Insights has compiled a list of leading smart factory solution providers that are changing the industry’s status quo with their innovative offerings.
