Artificial Intelligence Helps the Manufacturing Industry
When it comes to what artificial intelligence will be able to accomplish for manufacturers in the future, the possibilities are limitless. But even today, AI can transform how manufacturing companies conduct their day-to-day operations for the better.
Here are a handful of applications where manufacturers can apply artificial intelligence:
- Optimize plant operations – Manufacturers can use AI process mining, which is a quick way to find bottlenecks in your system. Getting started with process optimization requires data from all important assets in the system and the event logs of all equipment. Modern digital factories use machinery with embedded sensors that can share data with the process mining tool easily.
- Predict maintenance requirements – AI-powered predictive maintenance uses real-time data and algorithms to predict maintenance requirements for each asset. Predictive maintenance uses data from sensors located throughout the system transferred by the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). This data is used by the computerized maintenance management system to visual real-time conditions. AI-based software considers the history of maintenance and real-time data to predict when an asset will require maintenance to avoid breakage and wear.
- Upgrade logistics management – AI has many applications in logistics, including inventory management, material handling, transportation, and asset tracking.
- Achieve compliance with quality standards – The common AI/ML quality control system uses computer vision to compare the products with acceptable product images fed by the manufacturer. Based on the feedback, the system learns from its mistakes and improves the results.
