Increased Operational Efficiency – real-time visibility into production data enables more effective use of resources and helps improve line efficiency.
Preventative Maintenance - critical outages and unplanned downtime can be avoided by using real-time predictive analytics to identify and fix potential equipment failure before it happens.
Quality Improvements – with the help of prescriptive analytics, connected machines can be modified to prevent future equipment failure.
Agile Manufacturing – companies can become more competitive and respond quickly to customer requirements and demand fluctuations while controlling costs and quality.
Improved Efficiency throughout the Supply Chain – manufacturers can optimize production and avoid costly disruption with real-time visibility throughout the value chain.
Continuous Improvements – manufacturers can use data analytics from connected devices to update product design and provide new levels of service such as performance-based maintenance contracts.
For manufacturers, the challenge of the Industrial Internet of Things (also referred to as Industrie 4.0) includes solving:
Vertical Integration (OT to IT) – connecting highly complex, wide range of PLCs from multiple manufacturers including legacy equipment to a wide range of enterprise systems. In other words, connecting Operation Technology to Information Technology.
Horizontal Integration – the ability to allow secure monitoring and alerting from shop floor equipment to suppliers, customers, and machine builders highly improves the reliability, agility of the overall manufacturing process.
