Technology turnover is so high that gadgets and other breakthroughs are continuously mainstreamed. Innovation is arguably at its peak, as tech companies tinker with their products and services with unprecedented speed and knowhow. The manufacturing sector is one of the main beneficiaries of this revolution.
The Internet of Things (IoT), for one, has penetrated manufacturing and completely overhauled certain processes, most importantly supply chain management. Actually, there are already a lot of manufacturing tools with internet connectivity, but such devices are expected to multiply in the near future.
With streams of data feeding into and extracted from machines, technicians could easily monitor their performance and be alerted instantaneously on anomalies. Such close surveillance of machine performance and quality assures consistency and uniformity in output.
Another possible scenario in the future is the casual production of machine parts through the simple aid of a picture. This is commonly known as photogrammetry. By taking a few snaps of an object from different angles, a computer can process the images and render them into 3D representations of existing structures.
The manufacturing sector faces exciting times ahead, and it is only a matter of time before universal adoption of technologies in competitive markets becomes reality.
