Using the Industrial Internet of Things and Manufacturing Asset-Monitoring Software to Determine Asset Conditions and ProfitabilityNovember 30, 2015
Recently, ARC Advisory Group published an article on Defining Asset Condition in the Context of IIoT. This post outlined the importance of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in the context of an operation, outlining the roles various managers play and how system connectivity affects their perception of asset conditions.
For example, a Reliability Manager considers the expected life of a floor asset and that asset’s projected time to failure; whereas, a Maintenance Manager considers input/output and real-time sensor data.
With these various personnel roles working together to ensure quality output, the shop floor connectivity is crucial when it comes to ensuring your assets and your team are performing the jobs they need to be, to the best of their abilities.
That’s why the Industrial Internet of Things provides a great benefit to manufacturing managers when it comes to collecting and analyzing asset data. Using the cloud, and appropriate manufacturing asset-monitoring software, allows your team to assess whatever data they need without an owner spending both time and resources to train personnel on various tools and systems.
Freedom eLOG from 5ME allows real-time monitoring and data collection from the moment the software is hooked up to your floor assets. As an owner, you have the ability to set specific roles to your team members and give them the access to only the data they need. Even more, the live data can be accessed 24/7; therefore, there are no operational surprises and you’re increasing OEE.
