eHandbook: Industrial Automation

May 22, 2024

This Smart Industry e-handbook explores all the relevant automation trends in manufacturing, most especially implications for the workforce.
One contributor writes that automation is a means to “future-proof” factories—from labor force deficits, mainly—and free humans to handle different tasks. AI also can have a role in powering the robots that help “self-manage” warehouses.
Another Smart Industry contributor sees automation as an answer to outdated legacy maintenance and inspection processes, and yet another says the key to making digitization stick (in part by using automated processes) is by taking a human-centric approach.
One more writes of AI uses in analyzing factory-floor data to “simulate” processes that can make a manufacturing operation as efficient and cost-effective as possible.
