The use of connected machines in manufacturing can drive business insights through the integration of data analytics. This provides the basis for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industrie 4.0. The application of these core concepts to manage data can be applied to achieve process optimization that drives decisions in continuous improvement initiatives. Manufacturers increasingly demand connectivity, and the machine builders who can deliver it will establish a competitive edge and new revenue streams.
In this educational seminar moderated by editor in chief Mike Bacidore, Daymon Thompson, automation specialist with Beckhoff Automation, will highlight key implementation strategies and tools available for IIoT applications and directions on how to get there. Other highlights will include the intrinsic benefits of increased connectivity and the flexibility from machines that can provide secure global access to manufacturing and production data via encrypted cloud-based systems.
