Manufacturing and other industrial environments have many opportunities to leverage Internet of Things (IoT) technology to improve their operations. Factory visibility is a key benefit for plant managers, who require instant access to the operational parameters of mission-critical equipment.
Industry analysts such as Gartner and IDC forecast that by 2020 there will be 30 billion connected devices in use by consumers and businesses. For manufacturers and industrial suppliers these smart devices enable a connected supply chain and more transparent business operation.
Unplanned downtime results in operational disruption and increase costs for manufacturing operations. In an IoT-enabled environment, diagnostic processes are automated, identifying possible root causes through data validation and probability ranking before a repair technician arrives. IoT systems are integrated into smart sensors for manufacturing equipment and intelligently collects and processes available data.
DataV can scale from large devices down to small controller boards. Logic running locally on the equipment can be configured to define data collection rules, including which data to transmit and how often.
Through the monitoring of physical asset data, the Remote Diagnostic Service (RDS) rate can be enhanced to reduce costly maintenance deployments. Correctly designed IoT systems can reduce warranty costs in a number of ways. By aggregating and analyzing large data sets, operators can identify patterns and anomalies and benchmark those against historical trends to inform smarter decisions that can predict issues before it is too late. Proactive measures can be initiated by virtue of insights gleaned from predictive analytics to inform progressive preventative maintenance protocols before failing equipment reaches a critical mass, therefore extending the lifecycle of equipment and minimizing unexpected costs.
DataV is designed as a modular, scalable solution that easily integrates into existing infrastructure, making it an ideal choice for mixed environments. The architecture enables the business to install only the components needed to achieve the desired business outcomes. Whether on-premise or in the cloud, DataV represents a complete IoT solution for maximizing the performance of manufacturing operations in industrial settings.
