Lights-out manufacturing is a methodology that uses automation to run production processes with little to no human interaction. By equipping shop floor equipment with sensors and monitoring devices that communicate with analytic and predictive automation software, manufacturers can automate nearly every step in their manufacturing process, allowing them to:
- Ensure business continuity
- Mitigate labor challenges and constraints
- Reduce energy and labor costs
- Maintain production consistency and quality
Manufacturers of all sizes are accelerating and prioritizing their factory automation and smart manufacturing initiatives to help make lights-out manufacturing a reality. According to Gartner, by 2025, 60 percent of manufacturers will have more than two completely lights-out processes.
To help manufacturing organizations better understand lights-out manufacturing, we believe the Gartner research report; Lights-Out Production will be a Reality by 2025, will provide organizations insight to better understand:
- Lights-out production concepts
- Short- and long-term benefits
- Technical and skill requirements
