Jorge Valero for EURACTIV.com: The European Commission backs additive manufacturing as one of the pillars to strengthen its industrial sector and step up efforts to maintain the EU's global advantage.
Steve Twydell for ITProPortal: Rapid advances in artificial intelligence will change the way we manage logistics across a range of industries says Steve Twydell, CEO of transport management experts 3T Logistics.
Stephanie Condon for ZDNet: The maturity of automated technology used in manufacturing is all over the map, says Carnegie Mellon Prof. Howie Choset, but there are concrete ways to fix that.
Larry Turner for Industry Week: Industry experts agree, it makes sense to start now and to make small steps towards the big idea of IIoT. Partnerships can help the process.
Although some manufacturing leaders and their employees are hesitant to embrace new technology and hardware on the job site, these innovations are here to stay. Those who adapt to these new standards sooner rather than later will be ready to tackle Industry 4.0 and reap all the benefits it has to offer.
At the heart of IIoT is the way companies capture and share data. The ability to have data about inventory needs immediately available in the cloud and available to both plant floor managers and suppliers offers unheard-of visibility that heightens operational performance.
Japan is moving towards Neo-Industrial Manufacturing - Formation of Flexible Factory Partner Alliance
It appears Japanese factories, companies are looking beyond the IOT and or IOE; aiming to connect a variety of assets, e.g., machines, data, technologies, people, and organizations, as well as the existing industries and digital technologies, thereby bringing about the creation of new added value and the solutions to societal problems, bringing "Connected Industries" to fruition.
We are in the midst of a major shift that is redefining how our manufacturing processes and industry operate. The amount of data collected from connected, digital devices is growing exponentially, enabling more robust business insights.
Madelyn Kearns for Seafood Source: "A modern salmon facility takes in the fish, evaluates quality, weight, grading, and during all processes automatically determines which department the fish should go to,"
Clients work with Accenture to design and prototype digital solutions that improve engineering, manufacturing, production and deliver new customer experiences
The world of industry has been steadily advancing since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, and this new move toward data-driven manufacturing strategy is simply the next step in revolutionizing the industry.
Gary Hilson for EBN Online: The smart factory is becoming a reality, but the transition to Industry 4.0 is a pragmatic one.
Linda Rosencrance for TechTarget: Given the exploding industrial internet of things market, surveying the choices can be overwhelming. To get you started, here's a look at three platforms and their focus areas.
Scott Kirsner for Boston Globe: The revolution is about three things: more advanced software for designing things; devices like 3-D printers that can quickly crank out a prototype; and robots and other technologies that will make the factory floor more efficient and flexible.
Connected Manufacturing is the ability to drive data that is meaningful to the cloud for big data analysis. The current trend in Industry 4.0 is to be able to sense specific points in end equipment to enable advanced analytics to be run on distributed edge computing devices to determine whether machines are operating within tolerances and predict a potential failure before it happens.
