Many areas of our lives have already been changed by the Internet of Things, and industry is no exception. By blending the real and the virtual worlds of production via the internet, the IoT makes it possible to connect all parts of the production process: machines, products, systems, and people. This means that machines and products can communicate so they can manage themselves and each other. Software-based system and service platforms will play a major role in tomorrow’s manufacturing; they are the only way to bring connectivity, including data analysis, to machines and workpieces in production. Bosch's software solutions for connected manufacturing and logistics gather, visualize, analyze, and monitor machine, process, and sensor data. They then translate this data into useful information that serves as a source for their rule- and process-based actions. The transparency this creates allows clients to determine precisely where to optimize production and logistics processes along the entire value chain.
Globally, countries, cities, industries and businesses are becoming digital to capitalize on the next wave of the Internet - the Internet of Everything (IoE), which we define as the connection of people, processes, data and things. When people, processes, data and things are connected, we believe it creates an opportunity to deliver better customer experiences, create new revenue streams and operating models to drive efficiency and produce value. Cisco's goal is to be a strategic partner to our customers by providing the solutions, people, partners and experience as their customers move from traditional to digital businesses. They believe their customers’ journey to becoming digital businesses requires security, cloud, mobile, social and analytic technologies with a strong foundation of an intelligent network that is agile, simple and that provides real time business insight. The move to digital is driving many of their customers to adopt entirely new IT architectures and organization structures. In their view, Cisco are delivering the architectural approach and solution-based results to help them reduce complexity, accelerate and grow, and manage risk in a world that is increasingly virtualized, application centric, cloud-based, analytics-driven, and mobile.
The Industrial Internet allows you to combine brilliant machines with best-in-class analytics to deliver valuable new insights that were never before possible. The results of these powerful analytic insights can be revolutionary for your business by transforming your technological infrastructure, helping reduce unplanned downtime and maximize profitability and efficiency. GE believes the Industrial Internet unlocks new possibilities and drives transformation by connecting brilliant machines, advanced analytics and people at work. By getting equipment connected and having insights and evidence of when equipment maintenance is needed, you can optimize the maintenance schedule and cycle. GE’s business is making the Industrial Internet real. They help customers connect their machines, data, insights and people to improve performance, uptime and productivity. Their scalable, open standard control solutions bring the benefits of connected machines to customers' operations.
In the near future, billions of pieces of equipment will be connected to one another and massive amounts of data will pouring in. Advanced algorithms, high-powered computing, better connectivity and cloud storage all facilitate the emergence of smart systems. Knowing how to leverage the respective opportunities, however, requires a unique set of skills. Siemens has the engineering, domain and digital know-how to generate performance improvements across the entire value chain, from design to production and operations to maintenance. Digital simulation technology accelerates the plant design, the installation and commissioning as well as the entire product design and production planning process. Multiple components in systems and plants can be intelligently networked to communicate with each other and exchange real-time data. Machine learning makes complex systems more efficient without human intervention. The intelligent analysis of operational data helps identify patterns and predict potential downtimes. Minimum downtimes boost reliability thanks to lifecycle services.
The seamless integration of data along the industrial value chains will gain more and more in importance, becoming a key criterion for the survival of developing / manufacturing companies. The Digital Factory Division aims to provide its customers with a comprehensive portfolio of hardware and software products which enable the comprehensive integration of data from development, production and suppliers. The complete digital representation of the entire physical value chain is our ultimate goal. We call the solution platform which we created for this purpose "Digital Enterprise". Under this term the DF product portfolio already smoothly connects major parts of the product and production life cycle today. Powerful Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software, for example, allows us to develop and optimize new products on an entirely virtual basis. In the real manufacturing world the Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) concept, which has proven its worth for about 20 years now, ensures the efficient interoperability of all automation components. The TIA Portal, for example, already enables significant time and cost savings in engineering. In close cooperation with its partners within Siemens, and especially the Process Industries and Drives (PD) Division, the Digital Factory Division provides a large and unique portfolio of PLM software tools and industrial automation and drive technology tailored to meet individual customer requirements in various discrete industrial areas. In addition, DF customers can rely on the Division's commitment to the long-term development of their businesses. Protecting our customers' investments now and in the future – a particularly important consideration in the software business – is one of the major pillars of our business strategy. And when it comes to shaping the future of industry, DF is a driving and trendsetting force which joins with its partners worldwide in proven leading-edge technologies to increase productivity and protect a competitive edge.
The Internet of Things (IoT) massively expands the quantity and quality of real-time information available from a diverse range of devices in the public and private realm. Those devices will be talking to each other as well as central systems, triggering a radical change in the way you can manage assets, networks and the customer experience. Fujitsu has already systematized product and services initiatives in such high-growth areas as cloud computing, big data, mobile, and security to support innovation on the part of enterprises and society. By combining these initiatives with Human-Centric IoT, Fujitsu aims to further broaden and accelerate the scope of business and social innovation.
The Internet of Things (IoT) will have a profound impact in the future. Enabling anything to be connected and providing ’smartness’ to these connected things will bring value across a number of sectors in the Networked Society. Ericsson is engaged with a number of partners from industry and academia in an EU-funded research project called the IoT Initiative with the objective of increasing the benefits and possibilities of IoT, but also identifing and proposing ways to tackle the challenges. The project analyzed about 150 application scenarios of strategic importance. A selected subset were tested in surveys which went out to a number of users and professionals within the ICT community.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is fueling innovation in products, services and solutions that improve building operations and performance. For decades, Johnson Controls has been providing the equipment and systems that communicate in real-time to deliver optimized environments. With a portfolio ranging from sensors, equipment and systems through cloud-based data collection and fault detection, they offer an advanced and robust product line. Johnson Controls smart equipment leverages embedded controls and secured connectivity to reduce the risk of downtime and improve the serviceability while optimizing efficiency and reducing energy costs.
