While the manufacturing sector includes a number of industries-automotive, pharmaceutical, oil and gas, food and beverage, etc., all with their own intricacies and nuances-this report will look at the industry cross-sections where mobility is being used, or could be used, to improve processes. More specifically, this report will examine the environment where production occurs, the “shop floor,” whether that is in a factory creating automobiles or refining oil.
The technologies covered encompass much of the mobile ecosystem from hardware to software, but a focus will be on how these products are used to improve business process and take advantage of data flows and connected capabilities. Five-year forecasts will be provided for mobile solutions-devices, software, and services-as well as an in-depth discussion on solution requirements and expectations.
In addition, this report will analyze the major technical and operational trends that are driving change within the manufacturing sector. Mobile opportunities, arising from a more data-dependent manufacturing environment and the growing capabilities of mobile technology, are the direct result of technical and operational drivers and the slow removal of historical barriers. By examining these two driving forces in-depth, this report will provide an unmatched analysis of the opportunities for mobile technology within the manufacturing sector.
