Industrial manufacturing is one of the fastest growing sectors, and a lot of investments are made under the belt. The industrial manufacturing includes automotive manufacturing, aerospace manufacturing, and other general manufacturing industries. In terms of location of things market, this sector holds a huge market potential, mainly because of high industrial growth activities happening especially in emerging regions such as APAC and RoW. In the manufacturing sector, location-based technologies are being employed to track and locate equipment, components, and other items that result in enhanced inventory management, while providing safe, secure, and controlled operations. The technology helps the enterprises overcome the challenges, such as human errors, asset management, predictive maintenance, hurdle in the manufacturing process, and security. In manufacturing facilities, managers use IoT and location-based technology to track & record staff movements and work processes across the premises. Location-based technology helps navigate the plethora of data across organizations as well as avoid unnecessary taxes through strategic site selection by using spatial analysis and mapping to analyze strategically placed partners or potential acquisitions. Each manufacturing vertical has many operational units carrying out specific actions continuously. The technology helps know the exact location of the units and also identify flaws in the organization’s operations using a single interface. Cisco and AeroScout specialize in offering location-based technology for industrial manufacturing.
