KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysia Productivity Corp (MPC) is collaborating with the Malaysia Robotics and Automation Society (MyRAS) to educate and transform the manufacturing and production industries with the adoption and integration of robotics and automation technological processes.
MPC director-general Datuk Abdul Latif Abu Seman (pic) said both parties have been playing active roles in driving the industry towards the fourth industrial revolution (IR4.0) especially among the manufacturers.
One possible way to accelerate IR4.0 implementation in Malaysia is by having a pre-determined set of indicators to understand the industries’ capabilities and gaps, which will enable them to prepare feasible strategies and plans.
“We are already embracing IR4.0 where we see transformation with the application of advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), big data analytics, additive manufacturing, system integration, autonomous robots and the Internet of Things (IoT).
“It holds the key to accessing real-time results and data that will catapult the industry into new levels of lean achievements, ” he said in a statement yesterday. – Bernama
