Lack of real-time control over the production process
Low machine throughput, unplanned production downtimes
Manual, time-consuming collection of data from individual data sources
Lack of real-time monitoring, reporting and data analysis
_What is the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)?
IIoT is a way to integrate the data from existing data silos in any enterprise, including production data, data from enterprise-class systems or systems that support or oversee the production.
All this to get the right data to the right people at the right time. To build visibility and awareness of the current state of production, to enable analysis and optimization. And as a result, achieve a true Smart Factory.
_Areas of application of the Industrial Internet of Things in manufacturing
Remote real-time production monitoring
Unlock the full potential of production operations with solutions that help monitor and analyze data from various sources in real time for everyone involved - from operators through shift supervisors to top management. This allows you to analyze the status of production and the problems that occur. And this is always the first step for use of Machine Learning engines for advanced analytics and taking the advantage of your data.
Preventing breakdowns and downtime on the shop floor
Collect and analyze data from equipment and machines in real time resulting in the detection of anomalies and problems at an early stage. Prevent unplanned downtimes on production lines with alerts and notifications in the form of emails and SMS. With accurate information on the history of machine status, it’s also feasible to understand actual machine utilization and identify areas that need attention.
Visualize the necessary data in the form of easy-to-read reports and real-time dashboards showing the data and trends, essential for effective analysis and informed decision-making. With these actionable insights you can efficiently see and understand patterns, relationships and spot emerging issues leading to true operational intelligence.
Production process optimization
By monitoring the production process and the condition of machines in real time, it’s manageble to identify bottlenecks in the production process. By linking this information to statistics measuring production efficiency, it’s attainable to optimize the process, resulting in higher operational efficiency.
Optimizes production processes, enables the identification of bottlenecks, measurement and improvement of production statistics (KPIs)
