How IoT Is Disrupting Manufacturing

Millions of people around the world are being employed by large manufacturing plants. The industry is responsible for the creation of jobs around the world, and they are also contributing greatly to the global income. However, the manufacturing industry is currently transforming, and millions of people might their jobs in the years to come because of the advancement in technology. Manual labor is predicted to become obsolete as robots are already taking up their positions. People are complaining about the changes that are being implemented in the manufacturing industry, but the owners are defending their decisions because using a robot is more cost-efficient and effective compared to using manual labor. People need to accept the fact that with how fast the technology evolves, it will somehow affect our lives. One of the most recent innovations in the manufacturing industry is the integration of the internet of things to the procedures exclusive only to the manufacturing world. The internet of things was once a concept of devices connected to each other wirelessly.


This concept came into fruition when Wi-Fi and Bluetooth were introduced. Today, most devices have this capability, and they are able to connect to each other without the need of wires. Today’s devices can also connect to the internet without any hassle, performing tasks that were once thought to be impossible. The proliferation of the internet of things is evident whenever we look. This technology changed our lives, and it is now being used everywhere – at home, at the office, and even inside the school campus. The internet of things is a technological blessing for everyone because it has made communications easier, it allows the connectivity of one device to another, making file transferring easier than ever, and so much more. Experts believe that by the start of 2020, the internet of things will play a major role in the world’s society.


Internet of Things In Business


One of the industries that will be greatly affected would be the manufacturing industry. Owners of the largest companies in the world are thinking about integrating the internet of things to their systems. Based on the study conducted on two companies, integrating the internet of things to their system really helped them with their jobs. Their tasks became easier, and there is no need to go outside just to finish a single task. However, according to labor leaders, the integration of the internet of things will only result in the rise of the unemployment rate, because the robots will be taking over. The manufacturing industry, with their CEOs and presidents, has already released a study that is a proof of how the internet of things will help them.


One of the businessmen explained that when using the Internet of things in a manufacturing company, all of the devices act as in they have a commander. In real life, this commander is the computer, and an operator must be experienced enough in order for him or her to control the computer.  Some companies are using basic vsat services in order for them to connect the devices together. Without these vsat satellites, the things would be having a hard time in connecting with one another. One of the most remarkable features of the internet of things would be its ability to be partnered with any device.


IoT in The Home


Today, even household appliances display this capability, and with the development of newer technology, it is just a matter of time before we can say if the internet of things will become a global tech staple. Overall this new technology will benefit the lives of millions and lower the costs of goods worldwide.  The manufacturing industry must also remember that the internet of things is a new concept that has to be explained in detail.  It is always important to stay up to date on all new technology and how it will impact our lives, for good or bad.
