Leveraging embedded intelligence

 Leveraging embedded intelligence and new sources of information to connect and optimize the enterprise.

Manufacturing leaders are living through a period of profound change, opportunity, confusion – and competitive pressures. The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of several technology disruptions creating opportunity for transformation into Smart Manufacturing environments. Early adopters have accepted the concept of Smart Manufacturing and are embracing technology to augment their processes and their people for higher performance and efficiency. The IoT and other technology innovations, combined with government initiatives around the globe – the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership 2.0, Industrie 4.0, China Manufacturing 2025, Manufacturing Innovation 3.0, Usine du Futur to name a few – are fundamentally reshaping the industrial landscape. Manufacturers must converge their Information Technology (IT) and Operations Technology (OT) systems into a single, unified network infrastructure and identify opportunities for using IoT technologies that enable seamless connectivity and information sharing across people, processes and things. They must be sure they can efficiently manage a greater abundance of data in ways that help them make better, faster business decisions. This includes using IoT device intelligence, cloud connectivity and data analytics together to help manage the large data sets required for balancing production activities based on upstream inventories and downstream demand.
