The world of business is constantly evolving. The technology that is growing with it is immense. So many companies have streamlined their business so that their processes are quick and easy, using such advanced technology. But with it constantly changing, it can be pretty hard to keep up. Depending what niche you’re in, they’ll be more advancements than others. For example, manufacturing relies on machinery and robots so heavily, that the industry has no choice but to keep evolving its technology. With this however, comes a few issues. Money being one of them, time, and human labour. There isn’t enough time to keep up with the demands of what’s changing. There isn’t enough money being pumped into technology innovation by the government. There isn’t enough skilled labourers to build the parts as quickly as people would like. The demand is so high, that we’re seeing more and more businesses struggle to keep up. However, it is common that businesses will fund their own innovative technology that is changing the world, let’s take a look at some of the tech that will revolutionise how the business world works, in particular, manufacturing.
Possibly one of the most innovative pieces of technology to date. This is a process purely controlled by a computer. It’s basically layers of material that are constructed by the orders of a computer, to form a 3D object. Usually, they’re created to mimic an object already created, but they can be used to create brand new designs. This however, is much more confusing. The benefits this brings to businesses is huge. Time saving is one of them. Compiling the product itself using manual labour would take ages. A machine can do it in a matter of hours, and will do a much more precise job. There are so many components working at the same time to give you the perfect output. The parts are usually manufactured by multiple different companies. A 3D printing company with then compile them all to work seamlessly to create a perfect product. For example, the MOON’S brushless motors are handcrafted by that company, as is the thermocouple. It is wise to be done this way, as the companies designing the separate parts are experts in their field. Precision is another positive, rarely any faults occur compared to when a human hand is producing the product. The only negative side is the fact they are rather expensive. Money’s no object to some companies that just want to deliver quality products. However, for smaller businesses it may be a bit of a set back.
Robotics is now becoming a huge part of business. Again, especially in the world of manufacturing, and automotives. It can also be widely seen in medicine. However, we’re going to mainly focus on the benefits it gives to manufacturing and automotives. The main being speed. Robots are programmed to act in the same way as humans. They are essentially meant to be mimicking the movements a human would make. However, everyone knows a human has the tendency to become a little lazy now and again. With robots, they’re working at maximum efficiency all the time. So in theory, they’ll be doing a quicker job. They don’t need to take breaks either, further speeding up production time. Most companies choose to still use humans along side robots. This is mainly due to the fact that just like humans can have days off sick, robots can break. And unlike humans, they aren’t always the easiest to fix. However, on the whole they are generally much more reliable. Car manufactures in particular love using robots due to the fact they are so clean. During some points of the manufacturing process, suits have to be worn, and rooms have to be completely sealed in order for no dust particles to enter. Using robots eliminates this risk factor. They’re also so much more precise. They have the skills and stability to perform tasks that an unsteady human hand might not be able to do. Overall, they’re such a great addition to so many companies and production lines. Robotics technology is only going to improve over the coming years.
IT already played such a huge role within a business. From just computers in the office, to huge servers managing different aspects. The way the technology is evolving in terms of IT is huge. The power of computers is taking over the way processes are run. Whether it be in house, or outhouse, companies are constantly find new ways for IT to improve their business. Let’s use servers as an example. Huge companies that rely on a lot of software and other components may have their servers in house. Smaller companies will choose to use companies outside to manage them. Simply because servers are just so hard to control. The issues that can arise with them can be devastating, so it may be cheaper for companies to have a managed server outside of their company. However, in-house servers are safer in terms of, you can manage what goes on with them. Pretty much everything has had to evolve to be on the internet. Services, marketing, sales, you name it, it’ll be on the internet. So the speed and functions of IT systems has greatly improved. There’s now fiber optic broadband that businesses use to speed up their in house processes. Website design is unparalleled compared to what it used to be. The power of social media to influence marketing among a given audience is also huge. Your business will literally rely on IT for the rest of time. It is for the most part reliable, however, things such as copyright and trade marking etc. need to be closely monitored. Utilise IT and the web to make your business better.
The future of tech in the business world, as you can see, is constantly evolving. Before we know it, we may have machines, computers, or robots fully taking over the role of humans. It’ll be interesting to see where these three factors are in the next 50 years.
