Making way for process automation
The commercial world is entering a new era in business process automation – one where the physical and cyber worlds converge. Benefitting the entire industrial IoT lifecycle, millions of sensors and chips will soon connect all the dots for full process automation. This brings with it ‘smart’ robots and autonomous machines capable of handling on-demand manufacturing and adjustments, and advising businesses in advance when system upgrades and repairs are required, leading to a fully connected enterprise.
We know this because we are moving machine intelligence over to the cloud, utilizing 5G and IoT. Our collaborative projects are connecting industries remotely, automatically and autonomously, and in a way that is cost and time efficient.
Working together as a swarm of intelligence, robots and machines can perform new tasks and support the evolution of the working world; this includes responsibilities that are considered monotonous and unsafe. Additionally, robots and machines from different brands will be able to communicate and cooperate – and all operations will be viewed on a collective database, helping to spot faults before they happen.
This means that future business process automation can be tailored to every industry, every factory and every workplace, facilitating a connected supply chain that works in real time.
