Intel recently studied over 150 workers from the factory floor to the C-suite, to better understand manufacturing workers’ pain points, their beliefs about the future of their operations, and their best guess for future technologies.
IIoT is transforming the way manufacturers identify problems on the plant floor as the latest wireless solutions address integration challenges. IIoT eliminates data silos, so device-level data is accessible to the entire operations team. It provides valuable insights into machine performance, process inefficiencies and other potential risks. In this smart environment, wireless sensors enable real-time remote monitoring of machine performance. Manufacturers can use the information to increase overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), which is a calculation of manufacturing process efficiency.
Capgemini found that the successful manufacturers have mastered the use of data from smart, connected products to build actionable insights. 93% of digitally successful manufacturers have mastered the ability to use data from smart, connected products to gain insights into how they can improve product designs and manufacturing techniques.
