Making Factory Workers More Competitive in an Increasingly Automated World
Manufacturing has two big secrets:
1. Despite years of advances in robotics and automation, most factory work is still performed by humans. Indeed, only about 10% of factory tasks are performed by robots. The rest is done by people.
2. For 100 years, human tasks have been almost entirely invisible to analytics. The techniques to measure workers’ activities haven’t materially changed since the days of Henry Ford. These techniques are manual, time-consuming and impossible to perform at scale.
If you can’t measure something, how can you improve it? If manufacturers think human productivity has reached its limits, no wonder they look to offshoring or automation.
Now, with Silicon Valley startup, Drishti Technologies Inc., manufacturers can use technology for true digital transformation: not just to optimize workstations and assembly lines, but to improve all the functions that rely on time and motion data from human activities. By applying computer vision, machine learning and artificial intelligence to create a meaningful data set from human activities, you can learn how to improve human productivity.
