Abstract :

Over the past decade we have seen major advances in manufacturing IT. On one hand most machines and controllers now allow remote connectivity, diagnostics and even parameter adjustments. On the other, mobile and cloud technologies are enabling our workers to capture field data, communicate in real time and work together to resolve issues. Inexplicably however, for the most part the worlds of machines and humans remain un-connected. In this presentation we make the case that there is huge value in linking our human and machine assets in a seamless network. A network that promotes automated detection of issues through remote sensing and intelligent analysis (significantly reducing plant management workload), awareness and alerting of relevant human resources to issues (increasing response speed, reducing downtime), and visualization of critical patterns and trends hidden in the data (surgical pinpointing of problem areas and data-driven process improvement). We then describe a practical and effective platform approach that you can employ today to bring superior performance to your organization.
