In order to mitigate manufacturing disruption and the attendant up and downstream impacts, GE is offering free licenses of their remote monitoring software to current customers of their iFix and Complicity automation products. Through remote monitoring solutions plant, manufacturing, and warehouse operations can continue with minimal onsite staff supplemented by remote monitoring from home-based managers.
AI and IIoT remote monitoring solutions for manufacturing could help ensure minimal disruptions in the case of future social distancing, while allowing more flexibility and efficiency for managers needing to monitor multiple sites.
