AI Driven Productivity

New power with AI

AI enables making the most of available resources when production bottlenecks are detected and optimized in real time. By versatile data analysis, AI lets maintenance stay a few steps ahead as possible equipment failures can be identified in advance. The equipment’s operating time increases, and work in the hall does not need to stop.

AI can also be used in quality control to detect product quality deviations. Investing in robotics and automation systems increases not only efficiency but also occupational safety, as there is no need to use human labor for heavy, mechanical work.

The people behind AI

AI, like the other new technologies, can be reflected not only in the economy but also in occupational well-being. At its best, AI makes work easier, inspires development, and allows for the creation of new things.

The introduction of new technologies also has a flip side – as we know, learning new things is not always easy. Amid all the reforms, the staff may be burdened when the focus on the efficiency of robotization and artificial intelligence increases concern about the individual’s role. Taming artificial intelligence requires time for change, clear goals, and the opportunity to experiment, develop, and succeed.

Artificial intelligence increases productivity – Subcontracting Trade Fair 2024 fresh ideas.
