It doesn’t matter what type of manufacturing business you are, one thing is true across the board, cost-effective, digital manufacturing solutions are needed to keep factories and supply chains running smoothly while producing high-quality products. The pandemic has caused most businesses to look for ways to redesign work, the workforce, and the workplace to better manage disruption and future uncertainty.

We saw unprecedented acceleration with automation and robotics last year. A level which probably would not have been achieved unless businesses weren’t forced to look for ways to stay in business.  Part of the rebound businesses are experiencing right now is looking for new ways to use technology to get ahead and build on the momentum they started last year.  We are seeing manufacturers seeking to increase investments in Industry 4.0 and other digital manufacturing opportunities, increase interconnectivity of the industrial ecosystem, and rapidly adopt sensor technology, smart products, and Internet of Things (IoT) strategies and analytics.

The future of manufacturing is one in which large amounts of data will be captured to feed artificial intelligence software to produce us with lots of metrics that will drive all of our future business decisions. Manufacturers are learning from the glaring inefficiencies that were exposed when the pandemic first hit. There is no going back, there is only looking forward.
