Using technology for automation results in a production boost for industry. Introducing IoT into manufacturing provides an opportunity to increase production while reducing operational costs and lowering risk to workers and machines.
With remote monitoring and the power of machine learning, the health of factory machines can be monitored by listening to environmental changes and maintenance workers deployed before breakdowns or disasters occur.
SAFETY AND WASTE MANAGEMENT
Early warning systems can equally benefit from remote monitoring and machine learning to alert factory workers of events that may pose a safety risk. The same data can be used to lower insurance premiums as well as raise confidence of the workers.
Factories can track the output of production and cross reference it with the schedules for delivery to optimise transportation routes. Smart tags can also be used by factory workers to quickly locate factory inventory in real-time.
CUSTOMER INTERACTION AUTOMATION
To address customer-facing issues that have arisen from COVID-19, Kumva IoT is currently developing an industrial automated ‘click and collect’ system for larger equipment and goods.
