Manufacturing is in the middle of a digital revolution. Dubbed Industrial Internet of Things(IIoT) or Industry 4.0 ; machines of all types—old and new, big and small—are being fitted with sensors and switches to generate data and send it over the Internet in an effort to make manufacturing facilities smarter and more efficient. When the data trapped in machines is captured and evaluated, huge potential exists to improve operations, reduce costs, improve safety, and streamline manufacturing environments.
These benefits are not solely reserved for large factories either. Job shops of all sizes can leverage IIoT for data collection and management. Beyond data capture, you can connect independent things like machines, software, robots, and people to create a inter-functional system rather than individual, fragmented cells.
By utilizing data intelligence and connectivity, your shop can achieve greater performance and value from the assets you already own.
