Industry 4.0 – Predictive Analytics
IIOT – Industrial Internet of Things
- Kramah uses a technology(KSPEAK MACHINE) which connect smart sensors and actuators to enhance manufacturing and industrial processes
- Connected sensors and actuators enable companies to pick up on inefficiencies and problems sooner, and save time and money in addition to supporting business intelligence (BI) efforts.
- In manufacturing specifically, IIoT holds great potential for quality control, sustainable and green practices, supply chain traceability and overall supply chain efficiency. In an industrial setting, IIoT is key to processes such as predictive maintenance (PdM), enhanced field service, energy management and asset tracking.
How IIoT works
IIoT is a network of intelligent devices connected to form systems that monitor, collect, exchange and analyze data. Each industrial IoT ecosystem consists of:
- Intelligent assets that can sense, communicate and store information about themselves;
- Public and/or private data communications infrastructure
- Analytics and applications that generate business information from raw data and People.
- The IIoT can greatly improve connectivity, efficiency, scalability, time savings, and cost savings for industrial organizations. Companies are already benefitting from the IIoT through cost savings due to predictive maintenance, improved safety, and other operational efficiencies. IIoT networks of intelligent devices allow industrial organizations to break open data silos and connect all of their people, data, and processes from the factory floor to the executive offices. Business leaders can use IIoT data to get a full and accurate view of how their enterprise is doing, which will help them make better decisions.
- One of the top touted benefits the industrial internet of things affords businesses is predictive maintenance. This involves organizations using real-time data generated from IIoT systems to predict defects in machinery, for example, before they occur, enabling companies to take action to address those issues before a part fails or a machine goes down.
- Another common benefit is improved field service. IIoT technologies help field service technicians identify potential issues in customer equipment before they become major issues, enabling techs to fix the problems before they inconvenience customers.
- Asset tracking is another IIoT perk. Suppliers, manufacturers and customers can use asset management systems to track the location, status and condition of products throughout the supply chain. The system will send instant alerts to stakeholders if the goods are damaged or at risk of being damaged, giving them the chance to take immediate or preventive action to remedy the situation.
- IIoT also permits enhanced customer satisfaction. When products are connected to the internet of things, the manufacturer can capture and analyze data about how customers use their products, enabling manufacturers and product designers to tailor future IoT devices and build more customer-centric product roadmaps.
- IIoT also improves facility management. As manufacturing equipment is susceptible to wear and tear, as well as certain conditions within a factory, sensors can monitor vibrations, temperature and other factors that might lead to operating conditions that are less than optimal.
