How Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) will drive industry 4.0?
Industry 4.0 refers to a new phase in the industrial revolution that focuses heavily on interconnectivity, automation, machine learning and real-time data. Industry 4.0 also referred to as IIoT or smart manufacturing, combines physical production and operations with smart digital technology, machine learning and big data to create a more holistic and better-connected ecosystem for companies that focus on manufacturing and supply chain management. IIoT technology can be applied to solve difficult logistical, manufacturing and supply chain issues that benefit both the manufacturer and consumer. Leveraging IIoT in an existing enterprise is a mutually beneficial aspect of IIoT implementation and can reduce operational costs while ensuring the highest quality possible in a wide variety of an industry's processes.
Building the industries of the future requires innovative solutions that deliver openness, flexibility and unparalleled connectivity for safe and sustainable operations. Our IIoT-enabled EcoStruxure Plant & Machine architectures, with digital services and AVEVA software, can open up new business opportunities for plants and machine builders – increasing productivity and profitability.
