Industrial Internet of Things is the use of Internet of Things and Connected Devices in Industries. IoT incorporates machine learning and big data technology, harnessing the sensor data, machine-to-machine (M2M) communication and automation technologies that have existed in industrial settings for years. The driving philosophy behind the IIoT is that smart machines are better than humans at accurately, consistently capturing and communicating data. This data can enable companies to pick up on inefficiencies and problems sooner, saving time and money and supporting business intelligence efforts. In manufacturing specifically, IIoT holds great potential for quality control, sustainable and green practices, supply chain traceability and overall supply chain efficiency.
- Better Predictive and Preventive Maintenance
- Real Time Parameter Monitoring
- Real Time Analysis of Factory Throughput
- Machine to Machine Communication enhances automated coordination and saves manual intervention
- A holistic approach towards data enables the administration take analytical decisions in the benefit of organisation
The connected factory as it exists today is a relatively closed environment, designed to communicate within the plant network and not necessarily with the outside world, with or through the Internet. Most companies are quite comfortable with that; the Internet can be a scary and threatening place. So one of the first decisions companies face when considering IIoT is whether the benefits are sufficient to overcome the risk of making all that detailed company information accessible through the Internet and leaving internal systems vulnerable to hacking, viruses and destructive malware.
