Why industrial manufacturing needs IoT
IoT for Industrial Manufacturing, sometimes called the Industrial IoT (IIoT), offers manufacturers the opportunity to radically redefine their operations and even their entire businesses. The capabilities of IoT enable manufacturers to gain greater visibility and insights into their operations through the efficient utilisation of data and the tighter integration of disparate systems.
This opens up the possibility for manufacturers of moving away from simply selling products to becoming a provider of services and strengthening the relationship they have with the end users of their products.
This is a substantial opportunity for manufacturers to power operational optimisation projects with real-time data enabled by IoT and this is relatively straightforward to achieve by deploying sensors across the manufacturing environment and analysing the data gathered to achieve actionable insights…
