Since 2020, the industrial sector has turned a corner and must accept the changes brought about by digital transformation, or run the risk of obsolescence of their production system. Industry 4.0 offers new opportunities, and sectors such as the aeronautics, automotive and pharmaceutical industries have been the first to integrate the new associated technologies. For example, companies in the textile industry have followed suit, faced with consumers who do not hesitate to consult their smartphones to check the availability of the product, see it in 3D and consult the opinions of Internet users. The agility provided by smart technologies forces to remove the last obstacles of a successful takeover to remain successful.
Connected devices to improve process quality
Connected devices in Industry 4. 0 are wireless devices connected to smartphones, tablets or even PCs, to transmit and receive instructions and data. Equipped with sensors connected to networks, they send information that is analyzed in real time without interruption.
These devices inform operators who will be able to interact to optimize the productivity process, prevent the risk of stock shortages, detect breakdowns in time and respond to the needs of the customer, by accessing their wishes as closely as possible. Connected devices are now part of everyone’s daily life with the breakthrough of home automation.
Smart radiators, lighting systems or outdoor blinds controlled from a smartphone are a reality. The use of sensors should lead to a reduction in costs and an increase in production gains, even in industry.
The Internet of Things to boost productivity
For large companies or SMEs in the industrial sector, digital transformation and the use of intelligent technologies from Industry 4.0 should allow to improve the production process by responding to concrete cases. The recovered data allows to gain competitiveness by analyzing the manufacturing protocols.
In particular, startups have developed voice solutions, ensuring that operators get real-time information to remedy a potential non-compliance issue. The days of filling in descriptive forms by hand to provide information without disrupting the progress of a task are well and truly over!
These systems belonging to Industry 4.0 have a dual purpose:
- They must be easy to implement
- They must provide a quick return on investment.
This industry of the future increases the profitability of companies with anticipated data analysis. All smart technologies tend to increase the performance of the company. They must be tailored to specific needs and be practically tailor-made.
