Six trans­for­ma­tive tech­nolo­gies im­pact­ing in­dus­trial man­u­fac­tur­ing

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - NEWS -

What are the top tech­nolo­gies in­dus­trial vi­sion­ar­ies need to be aware of now and, more im­por­tantly, why and how will those tech­nolo­gies im­pact their in­dus­try?

To an­swer that im­por­tant ques­tion, ABI Re­search, a mar­ket fore­sight ad­vi­sory firm pro­vid­ing strate­gic guid­ance on the most com­pelling trans­for­ma­tive tech­nolo­gies, iden­ti­fied six tech­nolo­gies, along with big-pic­ture ques­tions and an­swers, to help guide se­nior in­dus­trial lead­ers to make key trans­for­ma­tive tech­nol­ogy de­ci­sions.

The end re­sult is a six-page re­search de­liv­er­able, “The Top Ques­tions & An­swers for In­dus­trial In­no­va­tors: Six 1-Minute Trans­for­ma­tive Tech­nol­ogy Reads”. The six tech­nolo­gies im­pact­ing the in­dus­trial man­u­fac­tur­ing mar­ket and a sam­pling of the per­ti­nent ques­tions are:

• Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence: What is the most suit­able im­ple­men­ta­tion of AI for in­dus­trial com­pa­nies? Full edge im­ple­men­ta­tion (e.g., both train­ing and in­fer­ence on-premise)? Cloud AI? Hy­brid im­ple­men­ta­tion (in­fer­ence on edge and train­ing at the cloud)?

• Blockchain: What is the ad­van­tage of im­ple­ment­ing blockchain in a man­u­fac­tur­ing sup­ply chain? Won’t blockchain put some mid­dle­men out of busi­ness?

• Cy­ber­se­cu­rity: How do you pro­tect your op­er­a­tional tech­nolo­gies in your cor­po­rate cy­ber­se­cu­rity strat­egy? Are there post-mar­ket se­cure ser­vice op­por­tu­ni­ties or new busi­ness cases (such as life­cy­cle de­vice man­age­ment) that could cre­ate bet­ter cus­tomer stick­i­ness with prod­ucts?

• IoT: Can a sin­gle con­nec­tiv­ity tech­nol­ogy ad­dress all in­dus­trial IoT (In­ter­net of Things) ap­pli­ca­tions? If edge com­put­ing can solve so many prob­lems, how do work­forces ben­e­fit from the cloud?

• Ro­bot­ics: When is the right time to adopt a col­lab­o­ra­tive ro­bot? How do you im­ple­ment Ro­bot­ics-as-Ser­vice to shift from CAPEX to OPEX?

• Wire­less Con­nec­tiv­ity: Why should you look beyond Eth­er­net to wire­less con­nec­tiv­ity in in­stal­la­tions? What should you be con­cerned about when look­ing at wire­less con­nec­tiv­ity so­lu­tions in your op­er­a­tions?
