Application of technology in business operations
Technology has been applied in manufacturing through the use of robotics. Robotics are
used to do repetitive tasks and also tasks that are hard for humans to perform because of the
physical constraints like getting into a very small place. Use of robotics in tight space has
increased at a high rate as the market for miniaturized electronics has grown (Tao, et al., 2014,
pp. 1436). Some robots may perform tasks independently while others may collaborate with
human workers to complete their work. Robotics may be useful in manufacturing processes that
involve variable which is not safe for human-like ergonomic issues or release of chemical or
fumes, and gas. Therefore, manufacturers can make use of robots in order to create a lower-risk
and safer environment (Forum, 2016). By using of the offline stimulation tools, an individual can
create a blueprint of the production floor in advance then install robotics solution. This allows
individuals to reduce the risk since they have not yet invested in the space and hardware
platforms.
Another technology that is applied in manufacturing is the internet of things (IoT).
During the manufacturing process, many data sets are needed to track, measure, and improve
