Why IoT Won’t Revolutionize the Manual Assembly Line
The Internet of Things is potentially revolutionary for many industries but will it revolutionize manual assembly?
In this presentation Adrian Jennings argues that the overwhelming majority of manual workflow in the assembly plant means that OEMs will need to look beyond IoT for full digital process connectivity. Mr. Jennings will describe how to augment IoT to reach those manual processes and how manufacturers are leveraging that connectivity to create new ways of operating. He will highlight several real-world examples where manual-process digitization is being deployed and the huge benefits OEMs enjoy even prior to IoT adoption
