Data comes at us fast and in many forms. These different forms can include structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data and many people do not realize that a data warehouse and a data lake handle the data differently.
Deploying RTUs on industrial assets is an important element of capturing, interpreting and using big data from an industrial process. In this article, Jean Burton, technical sales support manager at Ovarro looks at how RTUs play a key role in accessing big data.
By 2025, manufacturers and suppliers implementing Industry 4.0 tactics are expected to create $3.7 trillion in value, according to research by McKinsey and the World Economic Forum.
Manufacturing is forecast to come roaring back in the second half of 2021, according to many leading indices. This is fantastic news for the US economy but poses significant challenges for the manufacturing sector.
Products are becoming more and more complicated-and manufacturers are having a harder time keeping up. 92% of manufacturers have reported that their products have become more complex over the last half-decade.
When it comes to time-series data, there is no shortage of options. Cloud-based, data-lake, open source, and historians are all readily available solutions for data storage, along with lower prices for sensors, and wired or wireless offerings for data aggregation.
There are several different architectures and protocols that can be used to gather data on the factory floor. The two most common protocols are very different, which makes them worth comparing for their effectiveness in IIoT - OPC UA and MQTT/Sparkplug.
AI-guided selling enables analytics to move from descriptive to predictive and prescriptive analytics. The process uses customer and sales data for a scientific, data-driven approach to understand buyer processes and behaviors.
Data is the new Black Gold but if you are gathering data and not using it effectively then you are paying for data transmission and storage andiIt just becomes white noise and adds no value.
Blockchain has proven an effective salve for the dwindling trust in today's supply chains. It enables a network-wide protocol that helps reduce "trust tax," or the costs of maintaining trust.
As an industrial manufacturing engineer writing and speaking about the supply chain for many years, as well as being in the field helping companies for most all of my career, I wanted to pass on some thoughts and information for those of you that are considering this type of deployment option - especially if your mission-critical business depends upon a working cloud.
The complexity of mineral processing and manufacturing plants - how Artificial Intelligence can help
Industry 4.0 encapsulates not only manufacturing but also mineral processing plants and the differences between these should be considered carefully in the deployment of 4.0 solutions such as Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Even when you can connect directly to whatever it is that you are measuring and design the system yourself, you might encounter issues. Inconsistencies can arise from power failures, wifi outages, faulty or damaged equipment.
Modern manufacturers face key challenges to reaching their Industry 4.0 potential. MarkLogic knows data is your greatest asset to better serve customers, improve products, and navigate those complex environments.
Commentary from Ramona Schindler, General Manager Machine Tool Systems, Siemens Switzerland. Most shops, even the smallest ones, have obviously been gathering data and logging it in a production-schedule format of some kind for many years.

The Model TR1 Tru-Trac™ linear measurement solution is a versatile option for tracking velocity, position, or distance over a wide variety of surfaces. An integrated encoder, measuring wheel, and spring-loaded torsion arm in one, compact unit, the Model TR1 is easy to install. The spring-loaded torsion arm offers adjustable torsion load, allowing the Model TR1 to be mounted in almost any orientation - even upside-down. The threaded shaft on the pivot axis is field reversible, providing mounting access from either side. With operating speeds up to 3000 feet per minute, a wide variety of configuration options - including multiple wheel material options - and a housing made from a durable, conductive composite material that minimizes static buildup, the Model TR1 Tru-Trac™ is the ideal solution for countless applications.
