Industry 4.0 is a necessity, not a choice. In the past, success belonged to manufacturers who were able to predict long-term future demand. Nowadays, manufacturers cannot expect this kind of predictability—consumers demand to produce products to order and expect to produce and ship them at a faster rate.
Enterprises striving to predict and monitor every activity in the entire manufacturing ecosystem will realize the value of smart connectivity or the Internet of Things (IoT)—creating smarter, more connected factories that can gain greater operational visibility To ensure the production and delivery of high-quality products to customers. With decades of innovative advantages, Zebra is leading the wave of innovation in smart factories.
High-quality medical care starts with high-quality wristbands. Choosing suitable patient wristbands for healthcare institutions is essential for enhancing patient safety,
Reducing errors and improving work efficiency play a vital role. Considering the high costs incurred by medical malpractice, the importance of correctly asking potential suppliers about product and process related issues is self-evident. What are the key considerations that decision makers should keep in mind before pressing the “button” for the desired wristband procurement decision?
“2017 Asia Pacific Manufacturing Vision Survey”
(2017 APAC Manufacturing Vision Study)
The profound changes and emerging trends that manufacturers in the Asia-Pacific region believe will shape the future of manufacturing in the next five years.
In the past few years, discussions about how automation can change industrial operations have become more and more common. The rise of artificial intelligence (AI) robots has indeed brought improvements to industries such as manufacturing, transportation, and logistics. But in fact, the human role is still indispensable in the fields of manufacturing, transportation and logistics. For automation to proceed smoothly, humans will still need to respond or interact in some form. In the end, some traditional positions will be reduced, but new positions will undoubtedly be created and redeployed where necessary. We are moving towards a new world of artificial intelligence (AI), but we will continue to need human intelligence, which is the top priority for efficient operation.

IDC predicts that the manufacturing industry will lead the use of connected devices in 2018. Asia-Pacific companies will install more sensors, cameras and other connected devices this year, with expenditures of up to 291.7 billion U.S. dollars. Compared with last year’s $260.1 billion, spending increased by 12.1%.
In 2018, China will account for 64.2% of expenditures, followed by South Korea (9.8%) and India (8.8%).
According to IDC’s analysis, the top five industries driving the growth of Internet of Things (IoT) spending will be consumer products, discrete manufacturing, process manufacturing, transportation, and utilities in the coming period. These five industries account for 60% of total spending. (According to the information published on Techgoondu)
CEAT produces 26 million high-performance tires a year. Learn how Zebra Technologies’ integrated mobile, printing, and scanning solutions can help CEAT’s manufacturing plants across India increase efficiency and increase profitability.
In its newest facility in Nagpur, CEAT has deployed Zebra’s visibility solution—making it the company’s first Industry 4.0 (Industry 4.0) factory. The Nagpur facility is larger than the one located in Halol and is designed as a “smart factory”. It is the first two tire manufacturing plants in India that thoroughly implement the concept of digital technology. This will become a “springboard” for the journey of artificial intelligence. In the era of artificial intelligence, machines will improve the quality of the products they provide based on algorithms.
