Digital manufacturing takes account of manufacturing operations while leveraging digital technologies. Combining robotic process automation (RPA) with AI and ML will give the power and flexibility to automate undocumented processes relying on unstructured data be it in the areas of order management, payments, inventory and warehousing, logistics or pricing analytics.
In addition, harmonizing the IT environment, IT modernization and rationalizing and/or replacing legacy systems would be a key enabler towards the Industry 4.0 journey.
Q. Why are cloud-based services needed in the manufacturing industry?
A. Manufacturing companies need to be agile, hence “cloud” and “cloud-based services”. An ERP solution that is secure and yet adaptive opens new avenues for manufacturers. Cloud ERP is easy to implement, manage and modify, allows quick adoption of technologies like IoT, AI, Digital Twin and more, possesses rapid deployment capabilities, throws real-time data and adopts and implements industry best practices faster and of course has potential for future scale and growth.
