The Internet of Things (IoT) is paving the way for savvy manufacturers to redefine the way they not only manufacture products but how they design those products in the first place.
Call it advanced manufacturing - where automation, connectivity, and the Internet of Things converge with the manufacturing industry.
At the heart of these emerging new relationships is the Internet of Things which is driving the development of “smart products” packed with sensors and microchips.
Mix in some built-in software driven intelligence and you’ve got products that not only talk to each other but also communicate with humans in a way that wasn’t even considered only a few years ago.
Advanced manufacturing processes and advanced manufacturing technology are opening up new opportunities on daily basis.
Designing smart products that include online connectivity allows manufacturers, service partners and operators to gather and share product performance information through a digital connection that allows for remote visibility - where various stakeholders can interact with products in real time.
The advanced manufacturing technology behind a machine monitoring software system helps manufacturers make faster, more informed decisions based on real-time data.
Leveraging the power of IoT, data is automatically collected from machines and used to provide real-time visualizations and notifications, as well as historical analytics to help factory workers make faster and more informed decisions.
And the benefits of IoT continue once products leave the manufacturing plant.
Advanced manufacturing delivers “smart products” that reach far beyond basic functionality.
When manufacturers are able to establish a secure, reliable connection to their products as well as a platform to rapidly develop applications for optimizing their operation and maintenance, everyone benefits.
And, as manufacturers continue exploring the potential of the Internet of Things, new opportunities to engage customers beyond the purchase will present themselves.
The Advanced Manufacturing Council of the EU Tech Chamber (EUTECH) takes great pleasure to welcome you to it next Digital Event about “IoT in Advanced Manufacturing” on Friday June 11th, 2021 starting at 9:00am CET. We will discuss about this interesting topic, providing different expert visions and perspectives.
