Key Manufacturing Trends for 2016

Key Manufacturing Trends in 2016

In the recent years, production has grown exponentially and rapidly. Gone are the days when to finish a project it entailed endless hours of group meetings to discuss ideas and extended periods of making blueprints. Manufacturing has gone through a technology reconnaissance that has transformed the whole processes. Some of the key trends in manufacturing that have impacted the industry include;

Use of predictive analytics

Manufacturing efficiency is a better as the facilities and machinery used and the ability to detect when systems are failing. Predictive analytics brings on board a feature that makes it easy to predict all new technology systems and how they will impact the manufacturing company positively and increase efficiency and profits. Better yet it increases customer satisfaction by ensuring provision of better products.

Grasping virtual reality for manufacturing processes

Virtual reality has replaced the long hours used to develop blueprints by enabling simulation of different designs virtually to choose from the most appealing. Use of virtual reality cuts on time and increases efficiency in that the customer gets to see firsthand what the end product will be.

Internet of things

The main idea behind this is to connect machines, sensors, systems and humans to enable new levels of monitoring. The use of Internet of things global product has led to innovations and productions of cutting-edge technology that allows machines to communicate through the use of sensors installed on different computers. A good example of this application is remote vehicle monitoring, and speech recognition vehicle maps.

3D printing

Manufacturing is warming up to the idea of 3 D printing as a form of production. 3D printed materials are more elastic and durable compared to previous materials. 3D printing focuses more on the customer’s preferences and designs.
