Plan to attend The IIC 2018 Conferences to gain deeper insights into new manufacturing technologies and ideas!
About the topic
The recent explosion of data generated by the growing adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) has companies searching for the best way to harness this information to reduce costs and drive improvements. Today’s manufacturers are seeking more proactive approaches to maximizing their operational efficiencies and identifying performance issues before they turn into production downtime. Many are turning to scalable, cloud-based solutions to mine their robot data for analytical insights that drive improvements and lay the groundwork or future enhancements. This presentation will center on the strategies companies are adopting to implement these measures, the challenges they face, and actionable advice for attendees to get the most out of similar projects.
- Explain how IoT and analytics can be leveraged to reduce downtime and improve operational efficiencies
- Discuss the benefits of adopting an incremental approach to implementing analytic solutions for proactive maintenance
- Introduce cloud integration strategies form overcoming the silo environments in manufacturing
- Identify key security considerations when utilizing cloud strategies for analytic data gathering and reporting
