Do you have already have automation systems for your factory assets and /or processes? Have you ever thought about what you could do with the information from those systems, especially if it was hooked up in real-time to business savvy employees or enterprise applications such as ERP, MRP, CRM, dashboards, supply chain management, etc?
This is what the Industrial Internet of things is trying to solve. More and more businesses are discovering that the key to making and saving more money is to unlocking the data they already capture from the factory floor, from their machinery and/or running assets linking operations data to IT systems. If they could only get that data to someone that understands the business, in real-time, they could then identify waste or missed opportunity at a significant scale. The result could be minor changes that result in big revenue.
