Connected Data Will Help Shape Smart Manufacturing of the Future


Connected devices and the subsequent birth of the Internet of Things (IoT) have provided businesses a veritable treasure trove of data to mine, understand, and reapply to their own processes. And thus, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) was born. Most enterprises today have only scratched the surface of what their connected device data can do for them. This is especially true for manufacturers, who have endless pieces of equipment, product and supply chains to manage on a day-to-day basis. In today's competitive landscape, there is a great opportunity for manufacturing companies to use the data from their connected devices and adopt and apply machine learning solutions in order to help solve their longstanding pain points of resource planning, machine maintenance, and supply chain management.
