How Real-World Manufacturers are Successfully Using IIoT Today
There is a lot of talk about the promise of the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and the related concept of Industry 4.0. It refers to the use of Internet-connected devices, sensors, and machines to gather data that can be used to identify production bottlenecks, reduce machine downtime, and improve efficiencies. The benefits to being able to make decisions based on real-time data from your shop floor include reduction of downtime, increase in quality of products and reduced costs.
While the hype sounds quite promising, many small to midsized businesses (SMBs) in manufacturing might be questioning whether the tools to implement such widespread enterprise initiatives are practical for them. Questions might include: Will it require steep IT investments to get started? Will there be major disruptions to our production? Where and how do we get started?
Even once buy-in is established, manufacturing operations managers and executives have very little real world guidance on how to put IoT or Industry 4.0 initiatives in place. This eBook will provide some best practices from companies already implementing IoT and the benefits they are reaping, but first let’s talk about how to get started.
