Learning Objectives

  • Robots enable more consistent data capture, which must be integrated into existing operations to have a real impact.
  • With new data streams from robots, reactive maintenance can shift to predictive maintenance, which in turn increases operational efficiencies.
  • Technology can have a surprising impact on not just operations, but culture and the ability to foster collaboration across teams.

Robot insights

  • This example of robots used at a semiconductor manufacturing facility showcases how productivity can increase.
  • Using robotic technology ultimately helped increase efficiency and collaboration in a production facility.
