Controlling the IIoT
How the Industrial Internet of Things is changing the role of the control engineer.
As the industrial assets become more digitized and internet-enabled, technology tools are evolving to provide process and manufacturing engineers with the processing power, connectivity and security support they need to take full advantage of the opportunities that await. IIoT is a controls issue: greater productivity, operational visibility and agility await.
Profiting from the IIoT
How the Industrial Internet of Things can help industrial management uncover value hiding in plant assets
The profit potential of industrial assets has long been limited by inadequate connectivity between equipment generating production data and the applications which might learn from it. The communication necessary to have true impact on the profitability is – to say the least – rough around the edges.
Maintaining the IIoT
How the Industrial Internet of Things is enabling asset performance management
The digital enterprise presents maintenance managers with a more complicated set of assets to manage, yet also delivers tools to help maximize return on all assets. Greater processing power, Ethernet connectivity, and advanced analytics will enable new levels of preventive, predictive and proactive maintenance.
