Sensors and cloud software provide answers for worker shortage and more

AUTOMATION SEES MAJOR MOMENTUM

While tools like Internet of Things (IoT), block chain and Industry 4.0 were growing at a strong and steady pace, COVID-19 hit. It was a powerful accelerant for companies who needed to do more with less people and resources.

SENSORS ASSIST WORKER SHORTAGE 

Technology is a solution to worker shortage. A McKinsey survey of manufacturers showed that more than 30 percent of respondents pointed to worker unavailability as a major challenge. In 2022, Goldman Sachs analysts said there were 4.6 million more jobs than there were potential workers in the U.S. It’s a pinch-point requiring some creative solutions. In that survey, 25 percent said they are looking to fast-track their automation to deal with worker shortages. Since COVID-19, the sales of BinMaster sensors and software has seen a major spike to meet the needs of companies building their own Industry 4.0 solutions.

TARGET: WASTED TIME, PRODUCT, ACCURACY

The BinMaster whitepaper tackles the challenge of Inventory Management and ways that Internet of Things (IoT) can send data to the cloud to ensure better decisions are made down the line. BinMaster sensors launch a process of continuous inventory measurement. BinMaster brings a system for nearly every bulk storage situation. The data gleaned turns to key performance indicators (KPI) to meet business objectives.

SAFETY ENHANCEMENTS FROM TECHNOLOGY

The average workplace injury is $120,000. Sensors reduce trips on a ladder (responsible for 300,000 US injuries); slip, trip and fall injuries (211,000 US injuries per year); falls from heights (44,400 accidents per year). Sadly, there have been more than 900 fatalities in bin entrapment during the past 50 years.
