Manufacturers face increasingly volatile conditions affecting demand, rising consumer expectations and labor shortages. Especially for dirty, dangerous and demanding jobs which can be harmful to human workers.

IR4.0 technologies, innovations and solutions can help businesses navigate these challenges by streamlining factory workflows. Artificial intelligence and robots applied properly, can help to improve quality and efficiency in manufacturing, and provide additional benefits along the production value chain through collaboration with humans to reduce error and improve process efficiency.

The application of robots in repetitive tasks such as material handling, assembling, and machine tending have been proven to allow businesses to optimise the productivity of their workforce. Repetitive tasks are best suited for machines as robots have minimal to zero downtimes, high accuracy, and speed – enabling manufacturers to produce larger volumes of products in a shorter duration.

The enhanced optimisation, time efficiency and productivity offered by robots can nurture the overall growth in various areas from parts and components exports as well as domestic sales and production. This can be further supplemented by adopting digital marketing channels supported by Artificial Intelligence. Suppliers can better connect with relevant buyers on digital marketplaces and channel their products to these platforms to increase their sales.
