You may have heard the “buzz” about the fourth industrial revolution—what Accenture calls Industry X.0. It’s the intersection of industry and innovation, and it’s reinventing industry as we know it.
It’s reshaping the future, transforming the way we work and creating exciting new career opportunities.
A connected industrial workforce
I work with clients in industrial segments, from utilities and energy to chemicals, helping create and deliver innovative digital solutions that solve their core business challenges. These solutions have created a connected industrial workforce, combining mobility, internet of things (IoT), analytics and wearable technologies to enable workers to complete tasks more effectively and securely.
The end result?
Workers are given the tools they need to be more productive, more engaged and safer than they are today—wherever and whenever they’re working.
Four ways Industry X.0 is transforming and benefiting work in the industrial segment—and beyond:
Better workflow. The use of wearables and mobility-enabled solutions will transform maintenance processes, enabling a better ability to manage and execute tasks such as work orders, in-field asset data management and workflow improvements between workers, crews and sites.
A safer work environment. Worker tracking and turnaround solutions optimize shutdowns to undertake mandatory inspections, maintenance, improvement and expansion tasks that can’t be carried out when a facility is online. Workforce connectivity also helps companies manage associated safety risks through integrated worker tracking and monitoring.
More efficient field operations. The use of digital tools, wearables and mobility-enabled solutions optimize field work, such as high-frequency operator work tasks, and ultimately transform the efficiency and safety of field operations.
Greater value, higher speeds. The combination of foundational capabilities such as an IoT platform with end-to-end use cases delivers value to the business while providing a core platform to enable future growth.
Enabled by Industry X.0, the connected industrial workforce is starting to take shape. It’s time to embrace it.
