The Manufacturing Revolution Will Be Lead By IoT

And these startups and their big name, established clients seem to prove it. India’s mandate to increase its manufacturing output to contribute more to gross domestic product largely relies on policies according to most startups. But beyond those macro conditions, what will increase manufacturing output of tangible products will depend on efficient adoption of intangible software.

Hero MotoCorp Ltd. is the world's largest manufacturer of two-wheelers, based in India. Hero MotoCorp two wheelers are manufactured across four globally benchmarked manufacturing facilities in Gurgaon, Dharuhera, Haridwar and Neemrana.

Hero MotoCorp needed to transform the automotive component testing procedure at the Gurgaon manufacturing plant. Largely because any product failing in the market due to faulty components adversely impacts the financials of the automaker and the brand value along with loss of customer trust.

Teramatrix has implemented a connected quality control system for Hero MotoCorp to reduce human intervention in the quality testing process resulting in higher accuracy, efficiency and most importantly faster decision making. Their solutions have also resulted 24x7 continuity of various testing cycles, no deviation in testing plan priorities with system controlled automation, 20% expected increase in direct and indirect manpower productivity and KPI analysis to alert executives of potential problems.
