Industry 4.0 has revolutionised the manufacturing industry, with advanced tooling and machinery offering significant productivity gains. Conversational AI extends the benefits of technology advancement for manufacturers beyond the factory floor and into core business processes.
Typically manufacturing and supply chain processes involve multiple steps from initial customer meetings through to design, build, and delivery. Each one of these steps can be complex requiring numerous tasks and requiring involvement from different teams, systems, and sources of information.
Pulling all this information together can be extremely time-consuming and can sometimes lead to delays and errors in the production timeline resulting in deadline extension penalties and negatively impact customer relationships.
With Conversational AI Assistants many of these tasks can be streamlined through providing one easy to use conversation interface for information, support, and task orchestration – delivering significant efficiencies and improved employee and customer experiences.
