At New Era Electronics, we like to keep up to date with the latest and emerging trends in industrial computing for manufacturers. Already nearly halfway through what has been an exciting technological year, it’s time to review a couple of the exciting industrial computing advancements that have occurred to date.
It’s The Year For AI
Artificial Intelligence is steadily growing and is being increasingly adopted by flexible consumption models (along with cloud computing). In one survey by Deloitte, 58% of those who responded stated that they’d undertaken over and including six full AI implementations, which illustrates the scale and importance of this technology.
It’s not just AI that’s having an emerging heyday, either. AR and VR software is making exceptional progress in 2019, particularly when it comes to computer-aided design software, where product manufacturing standards are skyrocketing. These technologies enable firms to get ahead in increasingly competitive manufacturing industries, where industrial computing is at the heart of the business.
Digitization of Supply Chains
Management of supply chains is essential to all competitive manufacturing companies. According to PwC, one-third of more than 2,000 industrialized businesses have already digitalized their supply chains, while as we head towards 2020, it’s predicted that this will rise to three quarters. This movement of digitalization is particularly important for manufacturing businesses, as benefits are vast, including higher levels of efficiency, reductions in operational cost, better inventory control and increased customer satisfaction.
