Manufacturing industry supply chain optimised through M2M technology usage states Vodafone Insight Guide

Manufacturing industry supply chain optimised through M2M technology usage states Vodafone Insight GuideMarketing Release – The supply chain of businesses within the manufacturing industry can be thoroughly optimised through the usage of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technology, states a recently published Insight Guide by Vodafone.

Machine-to-Machine technology allows various machines to communicate with one another over wireless networks using simple and inexpensive sensors.

This emerging technology, known as the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT), has implications at every stage of an operation and enables manufacturers to monitor and maintain daily operations, and predict any future problems.

Through M2M, the supply chain can be kept up-to-date with any market changes and efficiently control supply and demand.

“The end customer for any machine is always worried about keeping the machine productive. M2M enables manufacturers at each stage – people who make production line technology and people who make, for instance, coffee machines for fast-food chains – to offer proactive servicing, or predictive maintenance that keeps everything running perfectly and anticipates problems,” explains Stefan Hubner, Chief Operating Officer of Device Insights GmbH.

The recently published M2M Insight Guide by Vodafone helps to outline how the usage of M2M technology can optimise the supply chain of a business – to view it, click here.
