Executive Summary—CEO's Perspective
For high-volume product lines such as ATEX motors, whose demand is volatile, it is efficient to manufacture components in a low-cost region based on forecast demand and assemble the final product near the customer location, based on customer order.
A major challenge that industrial automation vendors face is on managing frequent changes in order specifications or conditions. This challenge can be addressed by using technologies that can instantaneously notify related teams about changes in demand, supply, and production.
Adoption of technologies such as the IoIT is expected to enhance the accuracy of forecasting spare parts demand. This is expected to have a favorable impact across several end-user segments. Companies adopting IoIT can reduce their operating costs.
Predictive maintenance, enabled by the implementation of IoIT, is expected to eliminate the cost of periodic equipment maintenance. The value of savings is likely to significantly increase as the installed base of equipment increases.
