Despite considerable hype since the last few years, advanced factory automation has not been able to substitute at large scale as shown by COVID 19. This pandemic may and should serve to accelerate the adoption of smart technologies and methodologies fostering smart manufacturing. Companies are gradually realizing the convenience of machine to machine communication and connectivity across the value chain, especially remote monitoring and real-time control of the manufacturing shop floor.
With the gradual uptake of smart automation in many companies, there's an unprecedented complexity of safety risks exposed to the operators of the production facilities. The traditional safety assessments are now inadequate. Concept of smart safety arises to handle the new challenges. Real-time safety assessments, Interoperability validation, cyber security and functional safety becomes the new hygiene factors.
ABOUT SMART AUTOMATION
The use of technology changing the industrial world and fundamentally changing value chains and production methods. This will eventually usher in the age of Industry 4.0 or Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The ideal state of smart automation is to have a fully-integrated, collaborative manufacturing systems that respond in real time to meet changing demands and conditions in the factory, in the supply network, and in customer needs.
IMPORTANCE OF SMART AUTOMATION
The benefits of owning a truly digitalised smart manufacturing system is expected to drive the acceleration of digitalisation and connectivity in all layers of the automation pyramid or in other words, is expected to give rise to the ‘automation network’ with ‘any to any’ communication and get rid of the traditional automation pyramid model. To reach these goals, smart manufacturing with networks on shop floor level (Industrial Internet of Things), intelligent data acquisition and use as well as flexible and modular production lines are key technologies and becoming the New Normal.
