Future of Industrial Automation?

Industry Automation and Control Forum

This forum is addressing industrial automation design & engineering, operations, asset performance, cyber security and digital transformation for Plants & Machines.


Future of Industrial Automation?


The demand for new technologies is continually increasing as industrial offices consolidate a higher level of automation. The way the industry functions has changed in recent years. With the rapid advancement of automation, now is an excellent time to consider how future automation trends will affect the world.

Learning through Machines:

Machine learning, which promises a solution to a variety of cutting-edge manufacturing difficulties, is one field of innovation that has seen rapid growth in the last year. Machine learning refers to software engineering methods that allow a machine to independently take on a task rather than being adjusted to complete it.

Manufacturers with information-rich production lines will be the most interested in machine learning in the age of big data. Machines can extract patterns and data from existing datasets using the invention.

Optical part arranging, mechanized quality control, disappointment recognition, and increased profitability and proficiency are all possible applications. Machine learning, according to the National Institute of Standards, can increase production limits by up to 20% while reducing material usage by 4%.

Machine learning calculations have the potential to bring greater precision to each stage of production, and there are a variety of industrial frameworks that can - and do - use machine learning to improve activities.



Manufacturers will always priorities meeting customer demands. Changing buyer preferences and wants need manufacturers to offer a broader range of products while maintaining item quality and consistency. When considering the aggressive nature of today's company, the ability to create adaptive production lines is critical.

Modularization allows producers to make items in a single workplace by separating, associating, or joining separate production modules. This transformation necessitates the connectivity of new hardware as well as the application of smart control programming.

Manufacturers are increasingly using modularization to seed another market with a specific item in order to illustrate client needs prior to a full-scale execution, saving time and resources.


SCADA Systems:

Manufacturing relies heavily on SCADA applications. According to a report by global statistical surveying firm Technavio, the assembling industry is set to experience a significant shift in the adoption of analytical software via SCADA.

The use of predictive analytics in today's SCADA programming has made it straightforward for decision-makers to obtain information and form future expectations based on it. As a result, SCADA frameworks provide far more than just an awareness of machinery life expectancy. The integration of distributed computing and SCADA frameworks has given administrators the capacity to control production from any location, while also increasing the adaptability of the system.

There are security risks, just as there are with cloud relocation. However, as cloud security features improve and SCADA suppliers increasingly use security by configuration to manage their products, this concern is unlikely to deter manufacturers from embracing and profiting from cloud-based SCADA.

The world is changing as a result of digitalization, and industrial processes are ensuring long-term competitiveness. Plant operators have shortened their market time and become more flexible in order to respond correctly. The automation data is supplied back to ensure that production is continually optimized shagle azar .
