Industry 4.0

Improving industrial processes with machine data

The use of smart sensors and actuators to improve production and industrial processes is called the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). IIoT focuses on machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, AI, big data, and machine learning.

By using this technology, human errors are avoided. These technological methods enable industries to automate their operations to make their operations more efficient and reliable, thereby reducing unnecessary costs.

Predictive maintenance

The network of machines and instruments that communicate data using sensors results in valuable new insights. These real-time insights mean that manufacturers can recognize patterns and detect and even predict failures and prevent them by performing maintenance on time. This is called predictive maintenance and aims to prevent downtime and unnecessary costs. Digital twins play a key role in preventing downtime. As a virtual replica of the machine in the field, you can remotely detect potential problems, test new settings, and simulate scenarios.

The continuous development of technology makes it possible for machines to use machine learning algorithms and set goals, known as machine learning. All processes within the factory are then automated, increasing productivity and reducing costs.

Asset tracking

Asset tracking

Another important application of IoT is the use of Radio-frequency identification (RFID tags) or asset trackers that continuously track the location of assets. Containers and packages being transported from one place to another can be tracked in real-time, and if something goes wrong during the transport, the system gives a warning signal.

The sensors, such as temperature sensors or pressure sensors, also send an alert if the temperature or pressure exceeds a set parameter, risking that product quality will decrease. IoT ensures that the products are delivered to the right place at the right time and in good condition.

Improving inventory management

IoT can help streamline inventory management and improve every process within the warehouse. Inaccurate edits and errors require more work, resulting in unnecessary costs. IoT devices can help reduce manual actions and errors and increase warehouse processing speed and efficiency.

RFID tags allow an asset to be tracked as it moves through a warehouse. Theft and fraud can also be detected early and then dealt with better.
