Myths and Facts about AI in Manufacturing
The limitations in Manual Inspection system and Machine Vision system have led manufacturers of all the major industries to open up to alternative and better vision systems. Our previous blog on the Importance of AI in manufacturing has entailed how the AI vision system has found its niche in the manufacturing industry; AI has drastically scaled up the operational efficiency of manufacturing processes as compared to other vision systems.
However, manufacturers have some myths about the industrial application of AI that may hold them back from deploying the technology. So, we have debunked 4 main myths about AI in manufacturing:
Myth 1: AI is suited for certain industries to perform high-tech tasks only
Fact: AI is suited for all the manufacturing industries, irrespective of its size. AI performs all the functions that are essential to improve the manufacturing process. AI can be used for multiple tasks; right from detecting microscopic defects to tracking human/machine movement for safety and security reasons, AI is not limited to perform only specific tasks. AI can always be trained to perform any task, as required by the manufacturer.
Myth 2: AI always needs expensive hardware installation and factory set-up
Fact: AI is effortlessly compatible with normal IP cameras. It is the traditional Machine Vision technology that requires expensive hardware installation and yet, offers limited functions. AI does not need a specific factory set-up to give adequate results. It functions perfectly well in any manufacturing facility; irrespective of the lighting, vibrations, and dust.
Myth 3: AI will replace workers
Fact: It does not replace workers. It improves employee productivity and makes the factory a safer place by automating complex, hazardous, and time-consuming processes. Workers can be spared from the laborious manufacturing process and be employed in other critical production processes where they can make optimum use of their skills and efficiency.
Myth 4: AI helps in quality assurance only
Fact: AI is not limited only to quality assurance. AI’s Predictive Maintenance and Action Detection capabilities stringently monitor the production process, predict and detect errors at the right time so the entire production process is not largely affected. Therefore, other than quality assurance, AI reduces operational costs, shortens cycle time, and improves production capacity.
AI is a disruptive technology and its benefits go way beyond the traditional machine system. Today, customers expect timely delivery of quality goods to the market; this purely depends on the efficiency of the manufacturing process, and what better than a robust AI technology to amplify the overall operational efficiency with a seamless manufacturing process?
