Robotics and Automation: Enhancing Efficiency and Productivity in Manufacturing
Robotics and automation have emerged as accelerators for the growth of manufacturing sector in India. As the country seeks to enhance its industrial capabilities and improve productivity, the integration of robotics and automation has become increasingly crucial. These technologies are offering several benefits, including increased efficiency, precision, and consistency in production processes. They are also enabling manufacturers to reduce labor costs, improve product quality, and achieve higher levels of customization. Hence, Indian manufacturers are increasingly adopting robotics and automation to improve their global competitiveness.
However, they are facing several challenges in the way such as high initial investment costs, integration complexity, change management, customization, and shortage of skilled personnel for robotics maintenance and operation. Moreover, resistance to change from existing workforce and the need for stringent safety protocols is also hindering smooth implementation. Furthermore, the integration of automation brings along a higher level of connectivity and data sharing. This can expose manufacturing facilities to cybersecurity risks.
The objective of this webinar is to explore solutions and strategies for addressing these challenges. It aims to assist manufacturers in optimizing their robotics and automation implementation to capitalize on new opportunities for streamlining their manufacturing processes.
