Holistic [I]IoT

06/16/2020 MHPDeepDive

Improve Factory Efficiency based on End-to-End [I]IoT Transformation Approach

Many companies have already implemented initial [I]IoT projects. That's the good news. The bad news: These initiatives are generally not embedded in a master plan. A holistic [I]IoT approach is missing. This means that companies are missing out on considerable opportunities: More effective, more efficient, and more flexible processes on the shop floor and beyond – innovative products, services, and business models. We established a closed loop manufacturing process based on a holistic view for an OEM: In engine manufacturing the production line has been fully automated using 3,000 connected machine controls. The data generated here comes back to Engineering and Quality Management. The challenge with such projects lies primarily in the technological complexity. And this quickly puts people off.

However, the complexity can be managed with a consistent approach. [I]IoT should be viewed as an enabler, which is based on a clear vision with clear objectives and blends into a coherent strategy. The proper use cases can be derived and gradually implemented. And: The use cases can also have an influence on vision, objectives, and strategy. An iterative approach is created, which responds to the constant change.

In our MHPTuesdayTalk we want to exchange information and ideas directly with you about a holistic [I]IoT transformation: Also talk about the advantages and where the obstacles lie. We familiarize you with our procedure and present some best practices. We will also answer your questions, discuss your evaluations, and analyze your experiences. We are convinced: An open debate with people who are interested in the same topics and face the same challenges is extremely valuable.

In our MHPTuesdayTalk:

  • Our moderators will introduce themselves
  • Our moderators will present the topic, provide impulses, and highlight the best practices
  • You can exchange ideas and opinions in our MHPCommunity
