By embracing the cloud, manufacturers no longer simply collect data but instead, gain actionable insights from it. Whether it's for quality improvement, sales forecasts or preventative maintenance, predictive analytics or machine learning can give manufacturers an edge over their competitors and possibly, a complete new service to sell.
Measuring the number of perfect picks, volume of picks, savings by replacing traditional RF guns are data points that allow 3PLs (third party logistics) to quantify both a rapid ROI (return on investment) and TCO (total cost of ownership)
Often described as a building block of the 'Digital Industrial Revolution', a smart factory makes use of digital technologies including the Internet-of-Things, Big Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Robotics to increase productivity, quality and flexibility.
IoTium's Managed Service Offering Transforms Mission Critical Industrial Environments to Accelerate the Mass Deployment of Industry 4.0 at Scale
Ian O'Neill, Space.com: The first printing segment of NASA's 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge is now complete, and the U.S. space agency has awarded $100,000 to the two winning teams.
IIoT-ready Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) allow manufacturers to take data from the floor and share it with a local or cloud-based server, where it can be used company-wide, regardless of the user's location. The translation of machine data to actionable information allows companies to make cost-saving decisions and allocate resources more appropriately.
Industry 4.0 has been called the 'Fourth industrial Revolution', but unlike the first three, this revolution will be implemented at all sizes of manufacturing operations, not just large-scale corporate ones.
New Evaluation System Will Help Answer Manufacturing Industry Question
John Biggs for TechCrunch: The Blackbelt Kickstarter will launch in three days and you can expect the system to cost about 9,500 for a desktop system or 12,500 euro for a larger system with standing supports.
Overall, the benefits of virtual simulation outweigh traditional design methods on numerous levels, enabling product design timescales to be met more efficiently, and ultimately in a way that helps companies to innovate and grow.
Your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system needs to move at the speed of your business.
One can only imagine where camera technology is heading if autonomous cars and smart fridges are becoming the new norm. What about imaging systems in your clothes, on your skin or on your pets? It's all in the realm of possibility.
