IOT AND PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE HELP PREDICT OUTCOMES AND PREVENT FAILURES. COMPANIES WOULD DO WELL TO USE THEM TO THEIR FULL CAPACIT
MOLLY R

IOT REFERS TO THE CONNECTIVITY OF JUST about everything! Be it your devices at home or even your vehicle, IoT is what connects them to the manufacturer as well as you. May sound mysterious, but it’s true.

The technology actually has its roots in a world that predates the rise of smart appliances: Industrial manufacturing. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) “takes networked sensors and intelligent devices and puts those technologies to use directly on the manufacturing floor, collecting data to drive AI and predictive analytics.”

Deepak Pohekar, executive director of ZF Wind Power Coimbatore, says, “It is imperative to understand that digital transformation is reinventing companies and their factories. In manufacturing, it requires the seamless integration of both information and operations technology.”

According to Transcendent, the possibilities are almost endless when it comes to how IoT, AR, VR, and machine learning can help facilities with energy savings, labor savings, employee safety, and more. IIoT is changing the manufacturing industry. One of the many benefits of IIoT is how it can improve operating efficiencies. For example, if a machine goes down, connected sensors can determine where the issue is occurring and trigger a service request to an engineer. IIoT can also work together with an EAM CMMS where engineers can receive these generated requests on their mobile device and immediately go to the location to repair or assign it to another engineer near the asset.

KNOW THEM WELL

Growing numbers of manufacturing businesses are looking to digitise their operations to ensure adaptability and survival. Right now, manufacturing companies need better insight into their business, and greater ability to react quickly to changes both internal and external to their operations. Digitalisation can help your company identify gaps that need to be bridged, rectify issues before they happen and adapt quickly to changes in workforce resources, supply chain capabilities and customer requirements.

DELMIA from Dassault Systèmes provides an array of dedicated applications for industries, combined with an environment for knowledge-sharing, process and resource management, and the ability to capture and implement best practices for manufacturing. DELMIA PLM technology allows manufacturers to interact with factory processes early in the design stage and months before actual production commitment.
