Thinking Outside the Black Box: Scalable Use-Case Solutions for Factory IT Management
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) revolution and digital connectivity continue to positively impact manufacturers across nearly all industries. Unfortunately, one group tends to remain hesitant - job shops and other small-scale manufacturers. For these and other uncertain manufacturers, the advantages of a fully integrated digital workspace can seem small in comparison to the difficulty they expect to encounter when onboarding these somewhat sophisticated networks, especially given the relatively modest number of machines in use.
Job shop owners and principals want the advantages of monitoring the real-time manufacturing data that is essential to obtain optimal part processing, but feel they don't need full high-end systems/networks to do so and are skeptical that the benefits would outweigh the costs incurred by adding such systems.
