In the ultra-competitive oil and gas industry, this equipment provider weathers all business climates by minimizing waste and optimizing operations with cloud-based shop floor management software that seamlessly connects and monitors all of their manufacturing assets.
As manufacturing moves toward Smart Factories that optimize manufacturing processes, great advances in machine connectivity are adding value to automation, production data management and machine intelligence like never before.
The integration of ERP and MES starts with a cultural change within a manufacturer that embraces Big Data, mobile and Internet of Things technologies. They must add new data and process integration capabilities to their operations and improve flow/use-of-data from the top floor to shop floor. By doing this now, they will avoid becoming overwhelmed and outflanked by their competition.
Digitalization and Internet of Things technologies will likely increase the volume of cyberattacks. Connected devices, online portals, and sharing of data between enterprises create risks. What can a manufacturer do? Are there safeguards that can be taken? Of course.
The Smart Factory connects and integrates real-time information, advanced technology and human ingenuity in the application of manufacturing intelligence to every aspect of the business. Welcome to competition in the Internet of Things.
