How Hyper-Automation Can Help Manufacturers? – Edge, AI, and IoT

Development in technology has led to the introduction of various new techniques and processes that can benefit the business in multiple ways. As a result, different industries have embraced automation for many functions. Initially, many enterprises opposed using the automation technology as they feared failure due to no proper understanding of this newer technique and lack of exposure to it. However, in today’s world, many enterprises have accepted automation, leading to change in their primary working approach.

What is hyper-automation?

Hyper -automation is an infrastructure of advanced technologies like Edge computing, IoT, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to to scale automation capabilities in an organization. Such technologies help design and automate different processes that lead to the improvement in human capabilities. These technologies use several aspects of tool integration, process automation, advancement, etc., to automate the desired work.

The hyper-automation uses various techniques apart from AI and ML like different platforms, tools, technologies, etc. These include:

  • Business process management suits, event-driven software architecture

  • Integration platform as a service (iPaaS)

  • Low-code or No-code tools

  • Packaged tools

  • Robotic process automation (RPA)

  • Tools for segmented tasks, processes, and decisions

Need of hyper-automation in manufacturing

Hyper-automation helps combine various processes with technology that are essential in manufacturing. It combines the processes, merging tools, components, technology, etc., for enhancing labour productivity. Hyper-automation merges automation and machine learning tools for undertaking this task. It leads to using a large spectrum of sophisticated instruments at various stages. An organization needs to select the tools and machines that the employees are comfortable handling. However, it is also essential to use the diverse talent and experience of the employees in the organization.

Hyper-automation can help unify the corporate strategies that aim to create and optimize the processes that use innovative business proposals. Furthermore, hyper-automation can lead to a decrease in human intervention in processes that are repetitive and time-consuming. Therefore, manufacturers can use hyper-automation to help in saving time and resources. In addition, hyper-automation is helpful in various types of manufacturing sectors.

Benefits of using hyper-automation in manufacturing

The manufacturers can use digital manufacturing techniques to increase the speed of its process. This is helpful for the constantly evolving, dynamic business landscape. The different advantages of utilizing the hyper-automation include:

  • Increased efficiency: The manufacturing process also involves a heavy documentation process. They need to compile and collect all the necessary documents essential for the regulatory and other activities. They are also helpful for communication with several platforms, and they might face bottlenecks if these documents are not adequately managed. Improper documentation can lead to delays or errors. Embracing hyper-automation in this process can streamline the documentation leading to reduced errors and increased efficiency.

  • Inventory management: In the case of a large enterprise, it is essential to manage and keep track of enormous inventory details efficiently. Handling this data manually can lead to the incorporation of errors. It might also include a large volume of repetitive tasks that might affect the work efficiency. With hyper-automation this inventory management process can help capture the errors immediately and their timely rectification.

  • Integrated and empowered workforce: Hyper-automation creates a superior and intelligent workflow for the balanced working between the robots and people. It allows for efficient management of various activities within the organization ranging from basic processes, human decision-making, and even complex end processes. It helps relieve the employees from the manual work, who can be otherwise engaged for the other essential tasks.

  • Compliance: Using hyper-automation manufacturers can improve the quality of the work. It allows keeping the checklist of all the process, progress, responsibilities, insights for process gaps, etc. All these details are essential for the manufacturers in keeping-up with regulatory compliance and focus on the business growth.

What can manufacturing do to embrace hyper-automation in manufacturing?

For embracing the hyper-automation in the organization, they should include:

  • Check with the cloud provider for the following details: Edge AI on-ramp capabilities, data requirements, the cost for data sharing transmission, training provided, etc.

  • Check for the IoT installed at different critical points like PLC controllers and shop floor.

  • Check if the digital thread is established and associated with the governance model.

  • Check what information and closed-loop tasks they rely on the back of machines.

  • Check how predictive maintenance and asset optimization performed?
