Smart Factory / Industry 4.0/ Industry Internet of Things (IIOT)

Industry 4.0 is changing every aspect of how industry operates

Digital Technology is slowly being recognized as an important enabler for innovations and exponential growth. The Industrial Internet of Things is connecting the physical world of sensors, devices and machines with the internet and by, applying deep analytics through software are turning massive data into powerful insights and intelligence. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is the use of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies in manufacturing.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is the use of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies in manufacturing. Also known as the Industrial Internet, IIoT incorporates machine learning and big data technology, harnessing the sensor data, machine-to-machine (M2M) communication and automation technologies that have existed in industrial settings for years. The driving philosophy behind the IIoT is that smart machines are better than humans at accurately, consistently capturing and communicating data. This data can enable companies to pick up on inefficiencies and problems sooner, saving time and money and supporting business intelligence efforts. In manufacturing specifically, IIoT holds great potential for quality control, sustainable and green practices, supply chain traceability and overall supply chain efficiency.

Digital Manufacturing (Industrial IOT) Use Cases at Glance:

  • Connected Machines – Overall Equipment Effectiveness & Overall Plant Effectiveness (OEE/OPE)
  • Equipment Health Monitoring – Condition Based Maintenance
  • Energy Optimization
  • Improve Productivity and Quality
  • Effective Asset Utilization/ Asset Optimization
  • Track & Trace (Real Time Location Service)
  • Plant Safety
  • These are just few ….. any problem statement, pain area, KPI, success factor

Recent trends have shown that organizations are gearing up to become Industry 4.0 companies by using Industry 4.0 technologies and using Smart Factory setups to gain a competitive edge. Every process and activity can be optimized, networked, and made smarter by exploiting machines’ embedded intelligence to manage their operations, production processes, integrate information across enterprise own processes and within the extended supply chain.

Microlink provides a scalable and cost-effective data collection, standardization and distribution solutions from wire to cloud, for pervasive machines data access and comprehensive information sharing within the enterprise and across its extended supply chain.

IoT technology enables today’s factories to enhance collaboration between machines, humans, and enterprise systems – from the supply chain to the shop floor. IoT solutions can help unlock operational efficiency, optimize production and increase worker safety.
