Recently published in Industry Today Manufacturers seek quantifiable ROI before making leap to IIoT implementation By now, most manufacturers have heard of the promise of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). In this bold new future of manufacturing, newly installed sensors will collect previously unavailable data on equipment, parts, inventory and even personnel that will then be shared with existing systems in an interconnected “smart” system where machines learn from other machines and executives can analyze reports based on the accumulated data. By doing so, manufacturers can stamp out inefficiencies,

Never Miss a Beat with Predictive Maintenance

Predictive maintenance is the idea of fixing something before it breaks, which can save you LOTS of time and money! “Don’t Fix It If It Ain’t Broke.” Horrible advice, especially if you run a manufacturing plant. Any industrial business should really be focusing on predictive maintenance. Predictive maintenance is the idea of fixing something before it breaks. It saves businesses time, money and a lot of frustration. So What Exactly Is Predictive Maintenance? Predictive maintenance works by using a number of tools and techniques to monitor the condition of your machines and

Smart manufacturing systems are designed to make your job easier and keep your business moving. Read on for 4 smart manufacturing systems you have to try. Smart manufacturing is being hailed as the next industrial revolution. With these sort of claims, it would be ridiculous to not want to check it out. Where do you start? For someone who is just stepping into smart manufacturing, what tools should they use? There’s no easy answer. Your business is unique, so the tools your business uses should also be unique. There are

The Time has come to add IIoT into your Manufacturing Business

    The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a breakthrough in making your entire manufacturing plant work together seamlessly. Industrial Intelligence knows how: we’re here to help your business be a success. Here’s how to implement IIoT. The industrial world is finally beginning to join the 21st century, and it all has to do with the IIoT. An increase of 28.5% in revenues has been seen by manufacturers using IIoT. By 2025 it’s estimated that the economic impact of IIOT will be $6.2 trillion. So what is the IIoT?

Intelligent Manufacturing Rockets Business Growth

Intelligent manufacturing solutions are a smart way to make things work better and therefore help your business grow. Check out our guide on what they do. How important are Intelligent Manufacturing Solutions to the health of your company? Take it from GE Chairman and CEO, Jeff Immelt. He says, “Industrial companies need to become digital to survive.” “We must turn information into insights and insights into outcomes.” But for today’s manufacturing professionals it can be difficult to access the benefits. Transitioning to Intelligent Manufacturing can be intimidating. And even more

State of Initiative Report on Digital Transformation

An email survey was done of a broad swath of industrial concerns and a trend analysis completed. The survey benchmarked the evolving landscape of digital transformation, which we define as the adoption of new manufacturing and business processes made possible by new automation, communications and computing technologies. These are represented by conceptual models such as data analytics, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0. In the past 3 years of surveys, the number of respondents who believe digital technology will have a “high” or “critical” impact has increased

6 Trends in Smart Manufacturing (Industry 4.0)

The smart manufacturing (Industry 4.0) uses information technology and the best operating technologies to enhance global manufacturing. It aims at giving manufacturing companies quicker production and improved worker safety to bring more competition in market place. To remain economically viable, manufacturers must accelerate their manufacturing cycles. Smart manufacturing gives intelligent manufacturing solutions by focusing on cost reduction and efficiency. Let me walk you through the 6 trends in smart manufacturing industry; 1. Big data and cloud computing Through cloud computing, manufacturers are able to transfer data from one point to

9 Ways Car Manufacturing Plants Can Improve Production with IoT

With intelligent manufacturing solutions that get better every day, car manufacturing industries will soon be able to produce approximately 5000 cars per month. Impossible! Don’t you think? Well, it’s far from impossible because Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the way things are performed in the automobile industry. This is much better than Toyota’s lean principles of manufacturing that aimed at reducing waste. Intelligent manufacturing solutions improve and magnify lean principles to greater heights. New technologies like big data analytics and intelligent automation are connected in the cloud so that everything

What is industry 4.0?

Industry 4.0, also known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, will revolutionize manufacturing and the production industry by integrating Internet of Things (IoT), data integration, cloud computing, and other technological advances into the heart of the production and manufacturing systems. There are many elements that go into Industry 4.0. Here we break them down to key concepts explaining what it is, where it came from, and what it means for the manufacturing sector. Industry 4.0 is the next revolution in industrialization. The goal is to take all individual processes in computing, which factory
