Change is a constant in manufacturing, and fortunately, manufacturers are well equipped to handle these changes, particularly those who take the time to remain aware of trends in the industry and integrate them into their own operations. Technological innovations have made a major impact in helping manufacturers navigate difficult and uncertain times, which have allowed them to remain financially stable and successful. One example of these technological advances comes in the form of artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence is becoming more commonplace throughout manufacturing and has already yielded efficiencies in many areas, including some of those described here. AI, for instance, can help to analyze the data collected by industrial sensors, detecting problems quickly and effectively identifying potential problems. AI has also helped to overcome supply chain issues by helping manufacturers identify and react to inefficiencies and get ahead of looming global scenarios that may increase costs, such as weather events or tariff conflicts. Though it may seem like something out of a sci-fi movie, the truth is, these artificial intelligence systems are part of what allows predictive maintenance to be a successful strategy. For more information on how artificial intelligence is contributing to predictive maintenance, take some time to review the infographic embedded within this post.
