Many areas of our lives have already been changed by the Internet of Things
, and industry is no exception. By blending the real and the virtual worlds of production via the internet, the IoT makes it possible to connect all parts of the production process: machines, products, systems, and people. This means that machines and products can communicate so they can manage themselves and each other.
Software-based system and service platforms will play a major role in tomorrow’s manufacturing; they are the only way to bring connectivity, including data analysis, to machines and workpieces in production.
Bosch's software solutions for connected manufacturing and logistics gather, visualize, analyze, and monitor machine, process, and sensor data. They then translate this data into useful information that serves as a source for their rule- and process-based actions. The transparency this creates allows clients to determine precisely where to optimize production and logistics processes along the entire value chain.
Smart Connected Operations is a future looking vision that describes what the factory or production line of the future will look like. It will involve Industrial Internet of Things
(IIoT) enabled MOM applications integrated with IIoT enabled assets and IIoT enabled business systems. It is an elemental part of creating the Smart Connected Enterprise and is often where companies have breaks in the strands of the digital thread.
In moving towards this vision, both solution providers and manufacturing organizations are going to have to up the game when it comes to investing in IIoT. These investments will include the creation of new organizations that bring together IT, OT, and business leaders, new technologies that enable connectivity, cloud, big data analytics, and the development of new applications, along with the foresight to see that small pilot projects today could transform entire industries tomorrow.
The Internet of Things
(IoT) is fueling innovation in products, services and solutions that improve building operations and performance.
For decades, Johnson Controls has been providing the equipment and systems that communicate in real-time to deliver optimized environments. With a portfolio ranging from sensors, equipment and systems through cloud-based data collection and fault detection, they offer an advanced and robust product line.
Johnson Controls smart equipment leverages embedded controls and secured connectivity to reduce the risk of downtime and improve the serviceability while optimizing efficiency and reducing energy costs.
The Internet of Things
(IoT) is the futuristic vision of everyday objects having network connectivity—and it's already happening: our phone communicates with our watch and our refrigerator, our car communicates with our address book.
Emerson's Pervasive Sensing solutions are our industry's Internet of Things
, and only Emerson has the wireless expertise and capabilities to make it happen: both the cutting-edge technology and the process domain expertise critical to analyzing data and recommending actions.
The expanded view offered by a Pervasive Sensing strategy enables companies to gain actionable insights into areas previously unreachable or manually managed. A Pervasive Sensing strategy enables manufacturers to address these key areas with more and better data, strategic analyses and actionable information. When companies expand their strategy with more sensors, they easily take control of their plant and experience a considerable business impact.
The Internet of Things
(IoT) will have a profound impact in the future. Enabling anything to be connected and providing ’smartness’ to these connected things will bring value across a number of sectors in the Networked Society.
Ericsson is engaged with a number of partners from industry and academia in an EU-funded research project called the IoT Initiative with the objective of increasing the benefits and possibilities of IoT, but also identifing and proposing ways to tackle the challenges.
The project analyzed about 150 application scenarios of strategic importance. A selected subset were tested in surveys which went out to a number of users and professionals within the ICT community.
Information Systems and Technology develops, improves and secures the systems of sophisticated defense, aerospace and communications products. They have an established global presence in large-scale IT networks and systems, secure communications systems, command and control systems, imagery sensors and cyber products.
In the near future, billions of pieces of equipment will be connected to one another and massive amounts of data will pouring in. Advanced algorithms, high-powered computing, better connectivity and cloud storage all facilitate the emergence of smart systems. Knowing how to leverage the respective opportunities, however, requires a unique set of skills.
Siemens has the engineering, domain and digital know-how to generate performance improvements across the entire value chain, from design to production and operations to maintenance.
Digital simulation technology accelerates the plant design, the installation and commissioning as well as the entire product design and production planning process. Multiple components in systems and plants can be intelligently networked to communicate with each other and exchange real-time data. Machine Learning
makes complex systems more efficient without human intervention. The intelligent analysis of operational data helps identify patterns and predict potential downtimes. Minimum downtimes boost reliability thanks to lifecycle services.
The Industrial Internet allows you to combine brilliant machines with best-in-class analytics to deliver valuable new insights that were never before possible. The results of these powerful analytic insights can be revolutionary for your business by transforming your technological infrastructure, helping reduce unplanned downtime and maximize profitability and efficiency. GE believes the Industrial Internet unlocks new possibilities and drives transformation by connecting brilliant machines, advanced analytics and people at work. By getting equipment connected and having insights and evidence of when equipment maintenance is needed, you can optimize the maintenance schedule and cycle. GE’s business is making the Industrial Internet real. They help customers connect their machines, data, insights and people to improve performance, uptime and productivity. Their scalable, open standard control solutions bring the benefits of connected machines to customers' operations.
