From Top Floor to Shop Floor: Transforming Your Supply Chain with the Internet of Things

Oracle will be keynoting at the Internet of Things West Conference on November 5-6, 2015 in Las Vegas. Smarter supply chains enabled by the Internet of Things (IoT.)  IoT can help manufacturers understand their demand and inventory better, accelerate innovation and improve quality.  When changes happen on a manufacturing plant floor, how quickly a company can react and how they react is crucial. Today not only are sensors more widely available but they are also more cost-effective. These sensors can detect a wide variety of situations so manufacturers can be proactive and adjustments can be made before they become problems. The use cases for IoT in supply chain and manufacturing are endless – from better predictability to capturing production completion information, monitoring environmental values and many other scenarios. Additionally, the role of maintenance is also evolving. By bringing this data into enterprise asset management systems, the information captured provides a valuable historical asset profile that can be leveraged in on-going maintenance. In the keynote session, Maha Muzumdar, Vice President, Supply Chain and Margie Steele, Principal Consultant from Oracle will discuss best practices and review several use cases and case studies on how leading companies are leveraging IoT across supply chain, manufacturing and maintenance processes.  - See more details at:
