Ubisense, the market leader in location intelligence solutions, commissioned SME and Manufacturing Engineering Media to conduct the Smart Manufacturing Technologies Survey on its behalf. This survey was designed to collect feedback on how manufacturers use real-time intelligence and to gauge performance indicators such as unscheduled downtime, productivity, and quality issues. The findings from this survey provided Ubisense with a snapshot of the state of the manufacturing industry and clarity into current market needs. This insight helps Ubisense optimize its Smart Factory solution which enables manufacturers to turn data into knowledge and dramatically increase the visibility of their products, movements, and locations. 

Industry 4.0 is a long-term goal. Most manufacturers are working within the constraints of Industry 2.0 and 3.0 concepts. This presents a plethora of blind spots that make it difficult for plant managers, designers, and engineers to identify the right fixes that will have a positive and resounding impact throughout the manufacturing process.
