Empowering Smart Manufacturers with IIoT Centric Results: Harnessing the Power of IIoT
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) or Industry 4.0 as some call it is all about real-time data that can be shared by Operators and Engineering, Production and Management teams to improve productivity and ultimately profit.
To do that, every machine, whether old or new, must be embraced as a node on the corporate network. Once that connectivity occurs data starts flowing. Everyone on the shop floor right up to the top floor can take advantage of dashboard reports on any Web-enabled device to check the status of single or multi-plant operations to any level of detail they require.
It’s important to understand that data-driven manufacturing doesn’t have to be a cumbersome, lengthy or expensive custom IT project. We’re now to the point where a zero programming tool-kit approach can make this happen in a few weeks. Ironically, the biggest obstacle is no longer technology, or budget. The ROI is well documented and your competitors may already be enjoying this competitive advantage. The chief obstacle is human – the willingness to both receive and act on objective data as it’s presented in real-time. Continuous Improvement becomes ingrained in each and every shift.
In this Ebook manufacturers can learn more about harnessing the power of IIoT to stay ahead of their competitors in such a fast-paced industry, especially in the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) era
