IoE Increases Operational Efficiencies and Improves Energy Management
IoE Increases Operational Efficiencies and Improves Energy Management
For many manufacturing companies today, the opportunity to connect people, process, data, and things created by the Internet of Everything (IoE) presents a new way to look at factory automation. The opportunity for digital innovation often arises when a company is expanding capacity or building a new production facility. Mahindra and Mahindra, one of India’s leading automakers, seized the opportunity to deploy a connected factory of the future at their new Chakan facility.

Bus Manufacturers to Realize a Smart Factory
Bus Manufacturers to Realize a Smart Factory
China's Yutong Bus Group is a large-scale manufacturing company. Its enterprise scale and sales performance continuously ranks first in the nation’s bus industry, and its bus products are exported to more than a hundred countries and regions. In order to improve the manufacturing process and carry out the transparent production control, the company planned to upgrade the existing manufacturing floor into the advanced and efficient factory. In addition to using MES as the production management system, it was also necessary to adopt panel PCs as the HMI and to establish a network communication in the manufacturing site. On account of stability, the IT department of this company excluded commercial computers and decided to choose the industrial product which has the advantages of high-performance and low failure rates. The factory is a complex and harsh environment, so this project required providing different kinds of panel computers with rugged features for different machine uses, offering wired and wireless network devices to create a complete communication link, and the related modules to acquire peripheral data. Therefore, to ensure this stability, the system integrator used industrial grade wireless devices with wider network coverage and higher power output.

IoT Gateway Enables Faurecia to Improve Traceability for Customers
IoT Gateway Enables Faurecia to Improve Traceability for Customers
While Faurecia has a long track record of providing its customers with exemplary products, the increasing need to provide customers traceability for the parts it was producing motivated the company to further support these efforts. The large automotive OEMs expected Faurecia to be able to both track the process of operations and production and to make that information available on demand. For example, customers wanted to know which airbags were added to which cars, as well as detailed data characteristics about how each airbag was installed, including torque and angle of installation.

Wireless Temperature Monitoring Increases Throughput
Wireless Temperature Monitoring Increases Throughput
The customer’s manufacturing process takes raw aluminum billets and uses a cold rolling process to produce rolled aluminum goods. A throughput bottleneck was identified at the cooling station as the existing temperature measurement process required the crane operator to climb down from the crane regularly and perform direct measurements on the rolls.

Refrigeration Plant in Climatic Wind Tunnel
Refrigeration Plant in Climatic Wind Tunnel
Johnson Controls has advised Jaguar Land Rover on matters relating to the service, maintenance and repair of the Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration (HVAC&R) systems installed at the Gaydon Centre for almost 20 years. In 2012 we were invited to submit a proposal for replacement of the evaporator installed in the Climatic Wind Tunnel. In a ‘Site Survey Report’ submitted to Jaguar Land Rover, we drew their attention to the key factors that we believed were behind the evaporator’s less then optimum level of performance. The bulk of these stemmed from the fact that the existing evaporator was over 20 years old and throughout its working life a number of design changes had been made to the overall system that it formed a part of, thus rendering it no longer fit for purpose. Examples of such key factors included: • The old evaporator’s level of performance was now too ‘industrial’. It was capable of operating within a temperature range of -40°C and +55°C, while projected requirements were for a temperature range of between -10°C and +50°C. • Our concerns were raised over the suitability of the existing heat transfer fluid being used, which was proving to be highly corrosive. • The old evaporator was still operating on the soon to be banned R22 refrigerant. The use of all HCFCs for the service and maintenance of HVAC&R systems will become a criminal offence from 1st January 2015.

Automotive Component Manufacturer Improves with Datonis IoT Solution
Automotive Component Manufacturer Improves with Datonis IoT Solution
As a part of their Industry 4.0 initiative, the customer primarily wished to leverage IoT for maximizing operational efficiencies, productivity, reducing the energy footprints and maximizing capacity utilization. But there were several challenges at the outset:Firstly, the customer had multiple assembly lines with a diverse set of machines, systems and sensors, all communicating on different protocols. As such, primarily they needed a partner who could connect diverse set of assets on to a single platform and make use of underutilized ‘dark’ data.Secondly, the amount of data, data types and their applications was so vast, that the platform handling it, needed to be scalable and flexible.Lastly, Varroc faced the typical challenge of innovating in ‘Brownfield’ markets – wherein the real bottleneck is in integrating IoT in tandem with both the new and legacy equipment without any further CAPEX for asset substitution.

Public Sector (CLC)
Public Sector (CLC)
CLC heavily relied on manual paper-based systems to manage their mission-critical processes. As a result these processes were time consuming, invisible and unproductive driving the organisation to seek company specific process solutions. As Roger Barnes, Manager of CLC's mining activities notes, “The risks associated with this included the lack of integration with the data sets and tripping over statutory deadlines, so things that were supposed to happen at a certain time didn't always happen because we'd lose track of where they were at.” The vehicle booking process in particular required visibility as the organisation maintains more than 80 vehicles, each of which travels great distances per year. Understanding what kind of return the vehicles provided and at the same time managing occupational health and safety requirements were constant challenges for CLC.

Delphi Leverages the M1 for Prototyping and Final Part Production
As the automotive industry continues to tighten product development timelines, compressing design time in the supplier network has been the go-to model to achieve desired results. Traditionally, to successfully address the economics of part production, Delphi has used technologies like injection molding to deliver parts at scale. The cost of tooling development and time associated has limited part production to be focused on mass-production only.

An In-Depth Look Into Helium's Decentralized Machine Network
The Internet of Things is an $800 billion industry, with over 8.4 billion connected devices online, and spending predicted to reach nearly $1.4 trillion by 2021 [1]. Most of these devices need to connect to the Internet to function. However, current solutions such as cellular, WiFi, and Bluetooth are suboptimal: they are too expensive, too power hungry, or too limited in range.
