CHALLENGES OF MANUFACTURING & PROCESS INDUSTRY

Manufacturing and process industry output is generally seen as being the trendsetter of a nation’s economic prosperity. It creates wealth and employment and is the primary source of innovation in our everyday lives. However, challenges from globalisation such as new disruptive technologies, higher expectations from consumers for new and more innovative products and the need to embrace the digital revolution is affecting every aspect of our lives.

Companies from the manufacturing and process industry need to adapt to survive and facilities need to be smarter and more efficient.  

industry 4.0

Adopting smarter working to improve the operating performance

The fourth Industrial Revolution has arrived and is set to transform the manufacturing and process industry. “Industry 4.0” combines cyber-physical systems with the “Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)” to create facilities that will be truly intelligent. So wider adoption of automation, robotic systems, hypervision, automated handling systems and smart control will be needed. Analytic systems will be necessary to translate huge amounts of data collected into actionable tasks and create semi-autonomous factories that can predict plant downtimes, anticipate tool changeovers and connect directly to an intelligent supply chain network.

Controlling industrial

Controlling industrial costs and Time-to-Market

New product developments and innovations are occurring at a faster pace in quick changing and turbulent times. Manufacturing and industrial systems need to be flexible and reconfigurable to enable new products to reach the market quickly. New processes such as additive manufacturing can be used to transform conventional production methods, but this must be done without compromising product quality and integrity, errors in which can be catastrophic for an industrial’s reputation and balance sheet.

Manufacturers compliance

Rising to the challenge of complying to constantly evolving regulation and product traceability

Manufacturers and process industrials are facing an ever-increasing challenge of complying with tighter health & safety and environmental regulations. The need for product traceability, which is commonplace in many industries such as pharmaceutical and aerospace, is becoming increasingly necessary in other sectors.

Industrial cybersecurity

Integrating the security issues

With the Internet of Things (IoT) connecting devices and systems across the globe, the risk of cyber-threats to organizations has increased significantly. Whether this is from malicious data input to a system, or by the loss of valuable commercial data from a system, companies need to implement measures to properly safeguard themselves from such risks.
