Sensors now play a huge role in smart manufacturing. And, robotics can be used to customize production for shorter batches of precise medical devices. The use of IoT sensory systems, machine learning, and AI will allow for more precise control of processes, defect reduction, quality control, and cost optimization. The growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), which is enabling data collected from sensors attached to manufactured products in the field to relay critical information back to the plant, is enabling a new level of data-driven insights. So, what is the best way to include these smart manufacturing tools into your process?

Topics covered include:
  • Using sensors, robotics, and AI to enhance the overall manufacturing structure in order to save time and money
  • Focusing on more complicated initiatives, such as in-line predictive production quality that generates greater benefits
  • Challenges with regulatory scrutiny, security, cost, and distributed manufacturing
  • Use cases in medical device
