MHI recently published a new episode of MHIview, “Integrated Technology & Workforce Solutions.” In it, experts discuss the 11 emerging technologies that have the potential to disrupt the supply chain, as discussed in the 2018 Annual Industry Report. As for their individual impact on workforce, it is anticipated that solutions that are currently siloed—such as robotics—will be much more tightly integrated in the near future. This will give workers faster access to the most relevant, real-time, up-to-date information they need—when they need it.
In many past episodes, MHI has taken in-depth looks at many individual technologies and solutions for the NextGen supply chain. But these technologies should not be evaluated in a vacuum; instead, supply chain operations should examine how these technologies can work together to create a single solution.
