Smart manufacturing is a system that optimizes production procedures through automation. In other words, this collaborative system allows manufacturers to have an automated workspace that is more efficient and can react to changing demands in production rate, market demand, etc. This concept covers a wide range of technologies. This includes but is not limited to: digital transformation, data analytics, IoT integration, advanced robotics, etc. Ideally, in a work environment that strives to achieve smart manufacturing, automation with as many operations as possible is key. Doing so allows the operations to be more efficient, which in turn will increase profitability and quality at a lower production cost.
