Factory Kit leverages Tulip's award-winning Manufacturing App Platform, which brings the power of Industrial IoT and advanced analytics to the front-line engineer and the associate on the shop floor.
The challenge was to satisfy the impedance matching requirement when the antenna, resonator, and matching components are loaded with the nonlinear diodes.
As a provider of Production Scheduling software to many Smart Factories, Simio is often asked about the benefits of embracing Industry 4.0
With the IoT, every electric motor on a factory floor is equipped with one or multiple sensors that are connected (preferably wirelessly) to a control database that continuously collects data about the motors.
The food manufacturing industry stands apart due to its continual reliance on people. No matter how much automation exists in a plant, people still need to oversee things. Employees will not become obsolete with the introduction of IIoT.
Fully connected machines eliminate the need for post-production stress tests. The end users locations becomes the test environment. The varying use cases of each deployment create variations in the testing.
The report examines the technology by software, hardware and networking elements, all of which comprise the IoT system. Software is forecast as the fastest growing market (31.0% CAGR) over the next five years; although hardware currently has the largest installed base.
One distinct benefit of the IoT is that it's generally available to every area of the economy, and this particularly holds true for energy efficiency improvements.
GIM International: Spatiotemporal referencing can be used to enhance contextualisation of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) data and information flows within 'smart' factories, according to Studio iSPACE in Austria.
Pneumatics has had different diagnostic features for some time. For example, we can sense today whether the power is too low or too high, or whether there is a short circuit in an I/O system which caused some sort of failure.
Jessica Twentyman for Internet of Business: Internet of Business presents four key technology trends that will help the smart factory deliver on its efficiency and responsiveness goals in 2018.
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.
