The Business world has changed drastically in the ongoing years, and this significantly affects the manufacturing sector. In the current VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity) world, driving operational greatness has become a nonstop improvement measure for manufacturers.
Expanding competitive pressures, strict regulations, increasing costs, client inclinations, and booking are provoking manufacturing organizations to build their adaptability. Manufacturing industries are tested with accomplishing more with their present teams, processes, tools, and resources, while as yet giving the most elevated level of value and worth.
Most functions of the manufacturing enterprises (Shop-Floor) depend on paper documents and templates to provide and capture the data. Directly from the Tasks List, Routing Sheet, Design Documents to the Transaction Data, for example, Quantities completion from the field, and update this data back in to the ERP System. This process can prompt different issues, including the absence of real time data, duplication of work, error-prone data entry, and delayed response, which will eventually lead to deferred shipments and disappointed clients.

Right now, the Fourth Industrial Revolution can even now be viewed as evolution. In spite of the fact that the development Industry 4.0 is picking up momentum, no organization can overlook the advancements in shop floor digitalization; the time has come to focus on the steps prompting the Smart Factory. The patterns, for example, IIoT and mobility has taken a blast in digitalizing the shop floor to capture the real-time data from machines and assembly lines and sending it back to ERP / BI Systems to let the clients settle on informed decisions. The quickly changing mobile landscape can offer manufacturers the capacities expected to gather real time data, handling the data to settle on more intelligent choices and capitalize on the intelligence and knowledge gained from the data. With Enterprise Mobility that deliver real-time data, manufacturers can realize
