Operational efficiency and innovation are key driver to manufacturing success.  With increasing number of networked sensors across production and supply chains, manufacturers are seeking streamlined solutions by leveraging Internet of Things (IoT) into business operations.  IoT application create unprecedented opportunities and enable digitalised manufacturing processes through sensors embedded in machines, equipment,and industrial systems.  The vast amount of granular time-stamped data generated from multiple physical assets embedded with sensing technology could be converted into actionable insights using advanced analytics tool.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a network of physical objects, platforms and applications that contain embedded technology to communicate and share information via the internet. IIoT brings together intelligent machines, advanced analytics, and people at work. By combining machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, advanced analytics, technology, cyber security, HMI and SCADA, the IIoT is driving revolutionary changes and creating new business opportunities to the industrial sector.  It is critical for manufacturers to keep prescribed conditions in the manufacturing process as well as to check certain parameters of manufactured products during the production to achieve required quality. Manufacturing process consists of multitude of sensors can be monitored more precisely and corrective strategy can be taken before losses occurred.

IoT applications for industrial sector could be to examine any potential order backlog issues and improve inventory management by tracking inventory levels in real time.  IoT-enabled machines complement with predictive analytics empower maintenance staffs with actionable insights to derive effective maintenance strategies to avoid unexpected machines malfunction.  Other than that, real time monitoring across production lines allow operators to adjust production processes accordingly to increase productivity and mitigate the risk of unplanned downtime.  Moreover, telemetric sensors can be attached in fleet vehicles to monitor driver’s driving style and cargo condition to mitigate the risk of cargo damages.
