An up to 50% improvement in production defect detection has been shown through predictive, digitally-based factory asset management in research conducted by IBM. As the true efficiencies of AI, IoT, 5G, edge computing, and other industry 4.0 technologies go mainstream and change conventional thinking, that number is set to grow even further.

Next-generation sensors and detection devices signal a move away from routine maintenance regimes to predictive, AI-powered processes that lift plant output, reduce spare parts inventory, and streamline asset management services.
