The manufacturing landscape stands on the cusp of a transformative era, brimming with potential. Witnessing a paradigm shift from manual assistance to automation, the industry is evolving into “industrial automation.” Modern large-scale manufacturing operations, predominantly automated, are swiftly minimizing the need for human intervention.

In today’s era, factories and manufacturing businesses are constantly updating technology to improve operational efficiency, reduce costs, and increase competitiveness. NTT DATA, with over 139,000 experts in many regions and countries around the world, has strengths and long-standing experience in applying advanced technologies to solve the challenges that businesses are facing. NTT DATA’s major customers in the manufacturing industry, such as Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Aeon Maill, etc., have implemented automation technology solutions and achieved significant achievements. 

NTT DATA is delighted to present to our esteemed customers the 9 most sought-after automation technologies: 

1. Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT): Leveraging devices like tablets and smartphones, IIoT enhances operational efficiency by furnishing detailed performance data on manufacturing processes and equipment. This data empowers businesses to pinpoint areas for improvement, streamline processes, detect issues early, and adapt swiftly to evolving market needs. 

2. Robots: A pivotal force in future manufacturing, robots are becoming cost-effective, smarter, and more efficient. They offer a versatile solution for tasks ranging from repetitive and hazardous activities to those requiring precision and creativity. 

3. Artificial Intelligence (AI): From image recognition to data analysis, AI tackles intricate tasks, enhancing productivity and cost-effectiveness. AI algorithms optimize manufacturing supply chains. 

4. Big Data: Collating data from diverse sources like sensors, machines, ERP, and CRM systems, automation technology ensures swift and error-free data collection, slashing labor costs. 

5. Cloud: Employing cloud technologies automates manufacturing processes, allowing seamless scalability without additional hardware investment. It reduces initial and operating costs while fortifying security measures. 

6. Cyber Security: Automation safeguards manufacturing networks and data against threats, detects anomalies, prevents intrusions, and manages vulnerabilities using technologies like firewalls and IDS/IPS. 

7. Advanced Materials & Additive Manufacturing: Automated layer-by-layer production yields high-quality products, faster and cost-effectively, catering to complex shapes, on-demand needs, and test products. 

8. Modeling, Simulation, Visualization, and Human-in-the-loop: This tech suite crafts 3D models of products, optimize design and development, and refines manufacturing scenarios. 

9. Robotic Process Automation (RPA): A technology that uses software or virtual “robots” to automate repetitive processes in the business environment. RPA typically uses computer “bots” to perform tasks such as data entry, data processing, sending notifications, and interacting with other systems. RPA “bots” are programmed to simulate human actions while working on a computer, using a user interface and predefined rules.
