Main reasons why IoT has not been introduced

√ High introduction cost
√ Do not know how to introduce

When you introduce IoT at the manufacturing shop floor, the problem is the high introduction cost and the introduction method.

If you don't have professional IT knowledge and enough experience in the field of technology, it is very difficult to determine the right system and the right price.

Therefore, many managers and persons in charge are concerned that "What if IoT was introduced at high cost and productivity and profitability could not be improved?"

If the system is expensive to introduce and cannot be operated properly after introduction, the following factors may be considered.

  • The system development company does not fully understand the actual situation of the shop floor.

  • The portion that should be improved by humans, such as manufacturing method itself, standardized work, and layout, are not improved.

If you introduce the system after the consultant streamlines the flow of material and information, eliminates waste, and improves the shop floor to the ideal state of manufacturing, it becomes clear what kind of system should be introduced and you can also reduce the introduction cost.
