The future of industrial production has come to be known as the Industrial Internet, Industry 4.0, or cyber-physical systems. The opportunity to use a multitude of data to produce and supply goods in a more efficient and flexible way, while also saving resources and achieving better quality, ultimately depends on the reliability of the data input for the process chain – and the sensors that record real-time situations and convert these into digital signals. SICK started focusing its corporate claim on the future as early as 2004: “Sensor Intelligence.” epitomizes our clear focus on sensor technology as a data provider for the intelligent factory, making it the most fundamental module for providing the highest possible levels of transparency in the supply chain.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) promises to help maximize the connectivity of real-time operating data, automate predictive analytics and allow people to work collaboratively in the moment – it can bring incredible agility to decision making, improving company's bottom line. With iiOT by Honeywell, they help you better connect people, assets and processes to help digitally transform the business – more reliable assets, more efficient operations, and optimized performance across company's enterprise. All of Honeywell's ready-to-deploy IIoT technologies have cyber security built in, and Honeywell has designed solutions to help drive a step change in project execution by Honeywell experts with both IT and operations know-how.
Smart Connected Operations is a future looking vision that describes what the factory or production line of the future will look like. It will involve Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) enabled MOM applications integrated with IIoT enabled assets and IIoT enabled business systems. It is an elemental part of creating the Smart Connected Enterprise and is often where companies have breaks in the strands of the digital thread. In moving towards this vision, both solution providers and manufacturing organizations are going to have to up the game when it comes to investing in IIoT. These investments will include the creation of new organizations that bring together IT, OT, and business leaders, new technologies that enable connectivity, cloud, big data analytics, and the development of new applications, along with the foresight to see that small pilot projects today could transform entire industries tomorrow.
