  • Josh Linkner: I often get asked, "How do you describe

  • the factory of the future?"

  • It's a much more fluid, creative process,

  • with technologies and humans working side by side.

  • The way CPG manufacturers are changing

  • their approach to packaging is a perfect example.

  • As packages become smaller and boxes are reduced,

  • clearly it's making a positive environmental impact.

  • But it's also a win for manufacturers who are able

  • to get better positioning on e-commerce sites,

  • who tend to favor more efficient packaging materials.

  • For midsize manufacturers, that is especially important.

  • Those savings, and those advantages,

  • are where they build momentum for growth.

  • But developing one packaging operation

  • for bulk shipping to retail,

  • and another for direct-to-consumer

  • means more equipment to monitor and maintain.

  • To integrate new systems, manufacturers will tap into

  • the speed of 5G to track analytics in near-real time.

  • That means parts that need attention

  • could essentially speak up and ask for help

  • way before they become major maintenance issues.

  • All that can be handled by machine vision and IoT sensors.

  • These new technologies generate tremendous value,

  • but they also generate tremendous amounts of data.

  • A latency factor, where there's a delay

  • in data going out and data coming back in,

  • can actually create a negative opportunity.

  • It's possible to avoid that altogether

  • by processing data with near immediacy

  • at the edge of your network.

  • The outcome of that is edge-to-edge intelligence,

  • which ultimately drives performance and better outcomes.

  • For manufacturers of the future,

  • growth can mean different things.

  • You're starting to see co-bots,

  • where that's humans and robots working side by side.

  • We're seeing drones applied to the factory floor.

  • We're even seeing something fascinating

  • called the self-assembly process,

  • in which manufacturing items are, to a degree,

  • building upon themselves.

  • But as we look forward, it's still the magic

  • and the precision of all these moving parts,

  • data included, working together seamlessly

  • to keep the manufacturing industry running.
