Industrial Internet: Putting the vision into practice

March 1, 2016

When it comes to the Industrial Internet, many manufacturing companies are waiting for a game-changing key technology to emerge – yet the increasing interconnection of production and the internet offers plenty of tremendously promising potential right now. Optimization of existing services is already yielding new business models, especially for machine and component manufacturers. The only step required to apply these models is to make products and systems Industry 4.0 ready by incorporating sensors, actuators, and information processing software. Once these foundations are in place, machine and process data can be analyzed and optimization measures implemented on the basis of this analysis. Predictive maintenance is just one example of the numerous possible applications of Industry 4.0.

Industrial Computers and the Industrial Internet of Things

whitePaper |

Major advances in manufacturing are getting faster: If the first industrial revolution happened around 1760 with the advent of steam and hydropower, the second took more than 100 years to emerge with the development of mass production beginning around 1870. That lasted another 100 years until the third industrial revolution in 1970 as computers began to replace mechanical systems. Now, the fourth revolution is already here, and it’s been less than 50 years. We’re talking about Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Their effects will be bigger than the first coming of the computer to the shop floor and it will happen much faster.
