INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Zebra Technologies Corporation released the results of a Zebra study entitled "Asia Pacific Manufacturing Vision Study 2017". This is a study that analyzes emerging trends and will shape the future of the manufacturing industry.

Producers are now entering a new era, where there is an increased expectation of faster and more qualified production, as well as a very competitive margin. This trend, says Regional Director for Southeast Asia, Zebra Technologies Asia Pacific, Lim Fang How, is highly relevant in Asia Pacific, an area often considered the world's manufacturing center.

APAC Manufacturing Vision Study from Zebra, Lim said, shows that smart manufacturing industries have begun investing in smart factory technologies to make profits, such as increased productivity, increased visibility, and the ability to predict demand. As we continue to move towards Industry 4.0, this trend will continue to grow and shape this industry in the coming years, "he said.

The Zebra study found that the number of manufacturing industries that support fully connected plants will nearly triple by 2022. This means that 46 percent are predicted to have the ability to be fully connected within five years.

The manufacturing industry will continue to adopt Industry 4.0 and smart factories. Workers will use a combination of radio frequency identification (RFID), wearable technologies, automated systems and other new technologies to monitor the physical processes of the plant and enable the company to make decentralized decisions.

The manufacturing industry in the Asia Pacific region will also lead this trend globally, where 77 percent of respondents expect to collect data from production, supply chains and employees holistically by 2020, compared with 46 percent of manufacturers doing so today.
