Smart Factory and Industrial Automation
By: MGX Events
The 4th industrial revolution can be viewed as the fusion of a range of new technologies across the digital, physical and biological worlds that will potentially impact our economies and industries to the same extent.
- Smart factories are revolutionizing manufacturing by enabling a 7X increase in overall productivity by 2022 and will be able to accelerate on-time delivery of finished products by 13 times, with quality indicators improving at more than 12 times the rate of improvement since 1990.
- 43% of all manufacturers currently have an operational smart factory initiative, and another 33% are in the process of defining one.
- Smart factories have the potential to add $500B to $1.5T in value added to the global economy in five years. Based on the conservative estimate of 21% of all manufacturing plants in the eight surveyed geographies reworked into smart factories by 2022, the total value-added output and contribution to the global economy would be $500B.
- 56% of manufacturers have invested $100M or more towards smart factories. Greenfield initiatives are most often new business models manufacturers invest in to open new markets by relying on new products and services strategies.
