How did IOT and robotics evolve to benefit the supply chain

IOT is a rapidly developing technology. In just a few decades, industrial robots have become commonplace in factory environments around the world, and their productivity and profitability have been increasingly popular

robot technology has set off a manufacturing revolution. The cooperation between robots and IOT technology enhances supply chain operations, reduces the challenges of growing e-commerce demand and warehouse worker shortages, and simplifies industry processes in a more efficient and cost-effective manner

robot technology has been successful in a variety of structured industrial applications for a long time because of its high level of accuracy, accuracy, durability and speed. Moreover, although robot technology has become more and more affordable in recent years, there is a high cost factor in the early stage of supply chain implementation, which means that robot technology needs to be correctly evaluated and integrated to avoid damaging its value

in order to obtain the best return on investment (ROI) of a medium-sized agricultural film factory or plastic products factory at the fastest speed of slowly and evenly loading the test pieces, the enterprise must develop a strategy to integrate any new robot technology with all other IOT endpoints to ensure the safe and seamless operation of the entire supply chain, so as to avoid system interruption or revenue loss, and obtain valuable data insights

the trend of automation technology sweeping the world shows that from 2020 to 2022, nearly 2million new industrial robots are expected to be installed in factories around the world. In fact, Europe has the highest robot density in the world, with an average of 114 robots per 10000 employees in the manufacturing industry alone

IOT revolution in supply chain

iot is a concept in which intelligent technology can decide how to behave or control objects in the physical world by fusing sensor data and using local conditions, so as to monitor and manipulate events around them

manufacturing, transportation and logistics companies have always been the pioneers of the IOT revolution today, leading the way in which the connectivity and automation industries operate. In view of the complexity of the supply chain, the use of robotics helps to develop process driven automation functions, simplify the process and meet the growing demand with unremitting steps, so as to simplify operations. Moreover, they are not limited by human weight or energy level. With the trend of rapid service delivery and the increasing flow of e-commerce, robotics has become a wise way for enterprises to keep up with current consumer needs and expectations

nowadays, most tasks critical to the supply chain, including transferring products from warehouses or distribution centers, rely heavily on Robotics to achieve the maximum efficiency and accuracy required to meet demand. Automated guided vehicle (AGV) is an example. AGV is rapidly becoming the main content of supply chain warehouse. With portable, automated and sensor driven machines, AGVs can navigate the warehouse faster than any human, and they can work 24/7 a week. By speeding up operations and eliminating opportunities for human error, the integration of robotics such as AGV is rapidly becoming the key to improving supply chain productivity

robot to achieve return on investment

the supply chain business has implemented and actively explored the IOT transformation plan for some time. Research shows that this adoption will only continue to grow in the future

in the supply chain, the deployment of robotics is mainly focused on improving productivity and reducing operating costs. However, in order to obtain the highest value, the supply chain must optimize its robot system, which is part of the whole supply chain strategy, not just an island

IOT operations become most powerful when they are seamlessly connected to a centralized supply chain management system that connects employees' responsibilities. Coordinate managers and it departments to manage and optimize the use of all supply chain technologies and systems, including robotics

after correct integration, all supply chain business "teams can access the real-time visibility of all connection endpoints with a width of 10 ~ 25mm and a total length of no less than 150mm, and can obtain a lot of data insights from the whole supply chain, including the performance and accuracy of IOT. This helps to use robotics with other technologies and quickly identify any robotics problems or inefficiencies. It enables technical support personnel to take action as soon as possible, so as to minimize the impact of productivity reduction or complete interruption due to cost reduction. The real-time insight provided by the integrated mobility and IOT management platform can help reduce the indirect costs of tasks, such as maintenance and program updates, by identifying problems before system problems occur

by enabling predictive maintenance of IOT technology, we can also evaluate whether they have effectively achieved considerable ROI for enterprises

there is no doubt that using robot automation in the supply chain can improve productivity and income. However, in order to ensure the maximum value of robotics investment, enterprises must effectively integrate critical business IOT and other IOT endpoints into a complete and secure supply chain management ecosystem
