Use Case: IoT in Manufacturing

Manage and Take Action
Anywhere in the World

With limited visibility, manufacturing and operations leaders are required to make faster and better-informed decisions - despite often being located thousands of miles away from the actual site. Called to do more with less, there’s pressure to reduce costs and meet heightened customer and supplier demands at the same time. Manufacturers are looking for cost-effective ways to implement more manufacturing automation, enable intelligent manufacturing process design and tighten supply-chain integration.
The Internet of Things allows manufacturing and operations companies from small to mid-size to enterprise to quickly and economically improve and expedite decision making through real-time data and insights. Whether you’re moving from highly manual processes with heavy human involvement or you’ve already implemented some level of manufacturing automation, using and implementing an IoT solution can help unify all your data, allow remote management of devices and machines, and build intelligent, real-time reactions to events in your environment.


Connected Operations Intelligence

Make faster and better-informed decisions with visibility to unified information from disparate devices, machines, and data sources.
A connected solution can better leverage the data your devices are already creating by facilitating data collection, data storage and m2m communication.


Real-time Asset Tracking

Empower manufacturing management and staff with the ability to locate and monitor assets and materials throughout any stage of the manufacturing process, all in real-time.
Tighten supply chain integration to see every piece that goes into your product. No part is left unaccounted for.
Know at all times the exact location of individual pallets, containers and vehicles for effective, real-time demand planning and avoid or minimize supply disruption with immediate notification of an issue.


Predictive Maintenance

Minimize downtime and avoid potential failures by enabling real-time, automatic trigger alerts for critical equipment conditions and operating parameters.

Proactively initiate a response from your maintenance team or OEM service networks as soon as issue is detected.


Smart Energy Management

Optimize energy efficiency and cost by collecting, aggregating and tracking power consumption on machines and adjusting running times according to power cost and manpower resources.
