Upendra Vanarase, Managing Director, TRIO Motion, provides insights into how AI, robotics, and automation technologies reshape manufacturing and logistics, offering efficiency, sustainability, and improved operations.

How are OEMs leveraging AI-driven analytics to enhance production efficiency and boost competitiveness in the manufacturing landscape?
AI-powered advanced algorithms analyse extensive datasets to anticipate bottlenecks, optimise workflows, and forecast maintenance needs. These approaches surpass reactive approaches by reducing downtime, improving resource utilisation, and enhancing overall production efficiency. Real-time monitoring enables swift responses to deviations, averting costly disruptions.

Moreover, AI algorithms can adapt and learn from historical data, refining predictions for heightened accuracy. OEMs leverage AI-driven analytics for enhanced production efficiency, reduced costs, and amplified competitiveness in modern manufacturing. Our PC-MCAT-2 facilitates Windows-based machine control, IoT connectivity, and AI algorithm implementation on a single controller for machine builders, enabling seamless integration of high-performance servo or robotic motion control.

In what ways do AI algorithms enhance inventory management and mitigate supply chain disruptions?
After the recent pandemic-induced disruptions, effective inventory management has become a crucial requirement for factories and OEMs grappling with component shortages. AI algorithms offer a solution by analysing historical data, market trends, and external factors to forecast demand precisely. This facilitates dynamic adjustments in reorder times and quantities, optimising inventory levels, minimising surplus, and cutting costs.

Furthermore, these AI-driven systems bolster supply chain resilience by identifying potential disruptions and proposing alternative sourcing strategies. Real-time monitoring and automated decision-making enable swift responses to demand fluctuations or unforeseen events, averting stockouts and ensuring a seamless supply chain.

What roles do government entities and industry associations play in contributing substantial support towards fostering a more sustainable future?
Governments and industry groups actively support OEMs and factories adopting technology by offering financial incentives, research funding, and policy structures. These initiatives promote eco-friendly advancements such as 3D printing, advanced robotics, and smart automation. Industry associations collaborate with manufacturers to establish and promote optimal practices, promoting a sustainability-driven ethos. These technological advancements boost production efficiency and diminish environmental footprint by reducing waste, energy consumption and carbon emissions. This collaborative push aims to transform manufacturing, paving the way for a more sustainable and resilient future.
