IoT Will Drive Revolutionary Change in Manufacturing Companies

This week, Andrew Hughes of LNS Research authored an interesting blog that included the chart below, which was produced as part of a "Metrics that Matter" survey. This survey is supported by industry group MESA, and is being executed by LNS Research. The interesting thing about this (as noted in Andrew's blog), is the fact that there is positive interest in implementing plant analytics as well as operations and manufacturing intelligence capabilities.

Hughes writes that "Analytics is the technology that most drives the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) because they will bring real applications with measurable benefit early. Manufacturing executives are looking for quick wins from their investments in new digital technologies and analytics is the field in which the easiest gains can be made. companies that are interested in Digital Transformation should be looking at plant level analytics and bring those together with the Big Data Analytics capabilities across the enterprise to demonstrate that the IoT will drive revolutionary change in manufacturing companies."

Has your organization started on the path to revolutionizing manufacturing with IoT? We'd love to hear about it in the comments section below!

The Factory of the Future: Points to Consider

We are truly living in a fascinating time where things once only dreamed about in science fiction are becoming reality: driverless cars, appliances that text you when they need servicing, home security technology that allows you to track your children’s movements from your smartphone, and home healthcare wearable technology that can alert you if your elderly loved one falls.

These are just a few of the hundreds of ways consumers are taking advantage of this new technology landscape brought to you by the Internet of Things (IoT), which enables the automated transmission of information over a network without need for human intervention. Just as the consumer world is changing at light speed with the adoption of IoT technology, the manufacturing world also is in the midst of an IoT revolution. IoT is enabling manufacturers to gain competitive advantage and lay a foundation for the factory of the future with smart connected operations, smart connected assets and the smart connected enterprise. These initiatives to modernize manufacturing plants and facilities will have a huge impact on workers and organizations.

Leading global manufacturers across various industry verticals are putting together strategies that leverage IoT technology to modernize their processes and organizations.  Analyst firm LNS Research sees four main areas for manufacturers to consider when developing their IoT strategy: connectivity, cloud, big data analytics and application development. In this recent article, "The Factory of the Future..." published by Supply and Demand Chain Executive, find out more about each of those areas individually and how they all work together to create a factory of the future. And let us know your thoughts on the Factory of the Future.

Mapping the Next Milestones in the Supply Chain

When we look back at 2015, one of the biggest themes has been how supply chain has embraced the Cloud. That’s not to say that the sector was a stranger to the Cloud before; rather, that this year was marked by the industry starting to factor the Cloud into its wider business strategy, instead of as a technology model to explore and trial.

We’re still some way from cross-operational adoption of the Cloud. Some parts of the supply chain are inherently more Cloud-friendly than others; for example, those areas that are more used to sharing supply chain data with external organizations. In areas where businesses have traditionally outsourced operations, such as transportation, we’re seeing rapid and widespread Cloud adoption; whereas for functions such as warehousing and product lifecycle management, the Cloud is only just beginning to penetrate.

Yet the success of Cloud implementations elsewhere in the supply chain points the way to a future where it becomes a fundamental part of SCM strategy. Looking forward, then, what other developments might we expect to emerge in 2016?
