Industry 4.0: The Role of Mobile Apps in the Manufacturing Industry

How Mobile Technologies Can Dramatically Improve Manufacturing Operations  

Over the next decade, manufacturing organizations will face a dramatic labor shortage. How bad will it be? A recent Deloitte manufacturing industry study warns that the industry will have 4.6 million jobs to fill between 2018 and 2028, but will likely only be able to fill 2.2 million of them.

To combat the labor shortage, experts advise manufacturers to digitize data collection processes using mobile business apps for manufacturing. With the assistance of mobile digital tools, employees will become more efficient, allowing manufacturers to stretch resources. Examples include digitizing 5S Audits and Gemba Walks for lean manufacturing.

These advancements brought on by Industry 4.0 will help with overall production and inventory operations, boosting bottom line results.
