Englewood, CO, September 23, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- Businesses trying to succeed in the manufacturing space have faced new and different obstacles throughout history. This has especially been true during periods of significant economic or technological change.
In the last decade, the consumer trend towards product customization combined with an increasingly competitive global marketplace has put a lot of pressure on manufacturers to automate their processes and operations. With manufacturing initiatives like Industry 4.0, IIoT, or Smart Manufacturing, the digitalization of the factory floor has been inching forward, rather slowly and hesitantly compared to other sectors.
COVID-19, however, has upended the boat. The pandemic has highlighted how unexpected changes in demand and supply can throw the manufacturing sector into chaos; however, the most flexible producers with the right digital tools understand what is happening and adjust their operations quickly to survive challenges. It is no longer a question of whether plants need to digitize or not, but if it can be done quickly.
Social distancing is becoming the "new normal," and manufacturers need to rethink their plant layouts and processes to ensure workplace safety as they get their workers back on the shop floor.
During this uncertainty, many manufacturers shut down part of their facilities to stay operational and limit spending. To sustain the pandemic and beyond, they must identify areas for automation and digitalization to optimize and increase productivity and bring back facilities to better than normal conditions.
With remote accessibility and a digitized shop floor, facilities can work on automating production, removing additional IT overhead, and making it an affordable and sustainable solution for long term gain.
The willingness for manufacturing to stay more local and bring a quicker return on investment is the most significant development in this sector. They recognize that the time for change is now.
To meet the growing demand for digital transformation in manufacturing, XD Innovation and SBS Corp have entered into a strategic...digital manufacturing portfolio, DELMIA.
