More than a technological revolution, the connected factory is a total reorganization of the approach to production, using existing tools and placing a greater reliance on networks.
Adi Gaskell for Forbes: Such a network ensures you not only have the technological skills required but also the cultural and softer factors that are so important.
Huawei Wireless X Labs Sets up Connected Factory SIG to Explore 5G Applications in Smart Manufacturing
The Wireless Connected Factory SIG has brought together partners in the field of smart manufacturing to conduct further research and promote extensive applications of 5G communication technologies in Industry 4.0.
The IoT will enable us to collect more data, to know more, and to make better ("more qualified") decisions faster. This new territory will improve the quality of our lives and create further prosperity.
Scott Allen for Sys-Con Media: Security, therefore, will ultimately be the limiting factor on how much IoT technology is deployed.
SCADAfence Secures $10 Million in Funding to Protect Smart Manufacturing and Critical Infrastructure Networks from Cyber Attacks
Investors include JVP, NexStar Partners and Japan's Global Brain; funds will be used to boost go-to-market efforts and expand research and development operations
It's also important to look at the bigger picture. When machines do the grunt work, humans are able to solve bigger problems or spend their time in more interesting ways. This shift may well enable the next level of creative culture - the next space race, or a new Enlightenment, perhaps?
Overall, the capabilities afforded by IIoT mean that these technologies are not just short-term investments or solutions to immediate problems; rather, they enable continuous improvement by providing companies with the ability to solve new problems as they arise-compounding the value of the investment over time.
John Hitch for Industry Week: IBM's Watson IoT sees all and might even know it all. In a new simulation, you can feel what it likes to have it working for you.
Chris J. Preimesberger for eWeek: Webalo 4.0 gives enterprise users the ability to quickly and automatically generate dynamic desktop and mobile persona-based apps using wizards and drop-down menus.
Jonny Evans for ComputerWorld: Apple and GE's new agreement opens the door for further iOS deployment across industry infrastructure and puts Apple at the core of digital transformation.
The use of natural refrigerants is on the rise, creating a new set of challenges for cooling system design. HVAC system developers can optimize safety and efficiency by understanding the implications of the trend on component design and selection.
In the case of Windows Compact, the death of a product is actually giving rise to a whole new world where the possibilities are truly amazing. What will you develop?
What do I want to eat yesterday? Seems like a strange question. Yet IoT systems are architected to often ask very similar questions by aggregating a massive amount of data in a central repository where every so often a data scientist can evaluate and perhaps realize some insights that would have been best realized and responded to at the time the events were taking place at the edge.
Ease of access, improved productivity and automated decision-making are amongst the primary benefits of the IIoT. Those who hesitate are bound to suffer serious setbacks in output, customer service and overall competitiveness in the comings months and years.

EXAIR's new Basics of Static Electricity Webinar will help you learn what causes static electricity. Static be a large disruptor of processes within manufacturing facilities. It can cause problems with maintaining product quality, keeping process speeds at optimum levels and the morale of personnel experiencing static shocks. Knowing how to identify a static charge, the series of events that are causing the charge, and various ways to eliminate the nuisance, are keys to keeping your facility on top of its game. Attend this Webinar to learn how to determine if static electricity is actually the issue and methods to test for it. Learn several methods used in industry to eliminate static charge. Register to watch our Webinar live on November 7th at 2 pm or on demand. https://exair.co/184_fweb
