The manufacturing industry has always embraced new technologies. For example, drones and industrial robots have found immense use in the industrial marketing sector since the 1960s. Eventually, it has come to a point today where a steady stream of headlines invoke job threats for industry executives.
A new AI revolution is around the corner, and this can keep the manufacturing inventories lean and reduce the cost of raw materials. This will also demand the manufacturing industries to step up the game—they’ll have to pace up their infrastructure with networked supply chains, designs, production and quality control. The crucial elements of business will need to be integrated into intelligent engines for actionable insights. Simply put, a lot of human experience, coupled with the power of AI tools, will revolutionize the industrial sector on the whole. Let’s look at the benefits AI can bring about for industrial marketing:
Having said all this, here are a few crucial elements of AI which can blur the line in between human minds and houseplants:
The Art of Automation
Automating industrial processes will bring an unimaginable level of accuracy and productivity in manufacturing houses. AI can work even in dangerous conditions and accomplish tasks beyond human ability. Voice and image recognition will decipher and recreate complex tasks.
The Functionalities of IoT
If the Internet of Things (IoT) is used in the manufacturing industry, it can track, analyze the production quotas, and aggregate control rooms in-house. It can also bring about the most precise predictive maintenance. IoT, combined with augmented and virtual reality and customer feedback, can come up with a number of meaningful insights, which in turn will help the manufacturing experts in innovating products and meeting their customers’ dynamic demands.
The Revolutionizing Robotics
As we know by now, robots are already being used by the manufacturing companies. However, with the growing intelligence, robots can even replace the workforce in factories. Every stage of manufacturing can be monitored from close quarters with the help of sensors, after which data can be shared with AI and analytics software. Increased output, defect detection and faulty corrections will be made much faster, and the entire production cycle will prove to be more efficient with the help of robots.
The Virtual Reality
Human testing is no more a necessity in quality control. Virtual reality with its new tools has made it possible to perform testing in the virtual world. It allows even remotely located people to connect and jointly troubleshoot issues. Moreover, simulation, the crucial feature of Virtual Reality (VR) can help drastically reduce the manufacturing time and the tedious processes it calls for.
The Bottom Line
Unlike the other sectors where there is a thriving fear of losing human-involved jobs to AI, the manufacturing industry and the industrial marketing sector will only be driven towards higher achievements and goals. Moreover, this industry is all set to experience increased efficiency and output rates by taking advantage of AI.
Therefore, let’s welcome AI with high hopes for fine-tuned products, exceptional quality and optimized workflow in manufacturing houses.
