Machine-to-Machine technology increases the manufacturing supply chain efficiency through real-time dataMarketing Release – According to the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Insights Guide published by Vodafone, M2M technology is increasing the efficiency of the supply chain through real-time data.

This data ensures that faults can be fixed automatically across the whole of the production line or supply chain as they occur, as well as reviewing targets and production levels.

M2M, otherwise known as the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT), enables manufacturers to offload a lot of work to machines. Machines can ask for their own upgrades, learn from their surroundings and make decisions automatically. This offers a smarter and more innovative manufacturing team that can diversify business models to stay ahead of global competition.

This year, Pew Research Centre conducted a survey on M2M technology, and eighty-three percent of experts noted that over the next decade, M2M technology would have a beneficial effect on industry and society.

Through Vodafone’s M2M solutions, customers can drive product quality improvements directly from machines on the supply chain. Decisions can be made about servicing, production changes, and upgrades or firmware patches so that ‘predictive maintenance’ can be offered as standard.

The benefits of Machine-to-Machine technology and its impact on the manufacturing industry can be found via Vodafone’s M2M Insights Guide. This guide can be viewed here.
