As with every facet of modern business, manufacturing is not an exception when it comes to the digital revolution. Hard to imagine? SAP Malaysia managing director Terrence Yong certainly doesn’t think so.
“Imagine a factory floor with no operators in sight, machines automatically receiving orders, robotics shifting products from one machine to the next, and even machines performing self-diagnosis and predicting failures. Best of all, the final delivery of a unique, customized product based on one’s specifications,” Yong tells Malaysian Business.
