    Manufacturers Accelerating Digital Adoption

    Historically, manufacturing has been highly dependent on the human workforce and a little conservative in adopting advanced digital technologies such as robots, immersive reality, and IIoT to replace the human intervention. However, this changed drastically when manufacturing companies reported losses due to workforce shortages during pandemic, as they started relying on AR/ VR based solutions for remote assistance and training, bots for technical assistance on shop floor, IoT for reducing onboarding time and simplifying reskilling, and AI-based visual inspection to detect defects. The investments on real-time monitoring and AR/VR-based remote assistance could help manufacturers realize 11% productivity gains through reduction of human intervention. These trends are covered in Avasant’s new Manufacturing Digital Services 2020-2021 RadarView™ report.
