In manufacturing there are a lot of manual and labor intensive tasks and processes in production, quality, employee safety assurance, facility management, logistics, and human resource management. Here we discuss various manufacturing industry application use cases where Artificial intelligence can make a difference.
How AI Transforms Manufacturing
Improve Product Quality with Defect Detection Technology
Manually checking the quality or defect of each product at a granular or micro level is a challenge. If defects are not uncovered until after completion results in lost customer trust and production losses. Defect detection utilizes computer vision with sophisticated image processing algorithms that can identify and categorize defects across any industrial object in real time.
Enhance Production Efficiencies
In manufacturing there are many devices and sensors providing data points. These generate tons of data which is often left unused. AI can be used to understand the data created by sensor technologies like IoT.
Improved Operator Support with AI Chatbots
Intelligent AI powered chatbots (text or voice) can offer 24/7 technical assistance to operators or field workers to perform their operations safely, without having to wait for a human expert. This reduces technical training costs and improves issue resolution times.
Ensure Safety of Employees with Computer Vision
AI-powered computer vision cameras continuously monitor work to see that adherence to safety procedures like wearing Personal Protection Equipment (PPE). Computer vision powered by AI can automatically monitor and alert supervisors when proper safety procedures or equipment is not utilized.
