IoT‌ ‌and‌ ‌Digital‌ ‌Manufacturing : Networking‌ ‌At‌ ‌All‌ ‌Levels‌ ‌



Almost all of us have been using tech integration for more than a decade. Social associations through networks have been an integral part of everyone’s life. But a latent aspect of tech integration is the IoT for manufacturing and network marketing. 

Integrating networks, the immense potential of the Internet of Things of integrating the levels of the data is still unrealized potential.

Did you know Fact!

The IoT market is expected to rise by 0.49 billion endpoints by 2020 in the manufacturing and natural resource sector, while the overall growth of the IoT market is expected at a rate of 5.81 billion endpoints by the end of 2020. 

How has IoT helped the manufacturing industry?

Adoption of the Internet of Things by the manufacturing industries in the US has attained a gallop. Visionaries are preparing to invest a hefty amount on IoT

  • In the US, the manufacturing industries account for 15 percent of the total IoT purchases. 
  • IoT has opened a portal for tapping novel revenue sources through a digital transformation in the manufacturing industries.
  • Channelizing this integration towards production and combining it with other technologies creates a robust hybrid, which will much constructive in digital production and management.

The tech integration initiated by the IoT has proved to open new dimensions for the upcoming business models. The transformation has been successful in providing efficiency through automation. 

The Internet of Things market is an upcoming giant, testimonial of which is the IDC report, 2017 which highlighted the total expenditure of the manufacturing Industries on IoT, which accounted for $102.5 billion in 2016. 

Manufacturing industries are attaining leverages towards tech integration because of efficiency in:

  • Operations, 
  • Processing, 
  • Supply chain management, 
  • IT, and much more, supplemented by the IoT.

The Internet of Things is much about the interconnectivity of “things” for the interchange of data. Manufacturing is associated with enhancing the value of a product through manufacturing processes. 

Integrating various technical aspects, the IoT has been a revolution in the manufacturing sector.

Manufacturing industries follow a long hierarchy as it encompasses a large number of operations and chains. These include  

  • Purchase of raw material, 
  • Logistics, 
  • Manufacturing 
  • Accounting, 
  • Human resource management, 
  • Distribution, and much more 

All these departments work coordinately through well-laid protocols. 

But the game doesn’t end here. A company not only has departments but also has a vast client network. 

IoT integrates these hierarchy stages and the outside networks by providing interconnectivity among them and enhances efficiency by automation and simplification.

This Internet of Things has no boundaries. The dimensionless integrator supplements a manufacturing firm from the beginning to the end. Whatsoever the industry manufactures, the ultimate destination is the market capture. Markets are highly dynamic and demand-driven. 

How IoT can act as a segregator?

The changing trends of the markets need to be continuously collected and analyzed. Without these analyses, all the plans will end up in a vain. But markets are not restaurants where you are served what you ordered. While collecting the data, a firm acquires data which might not be useful or needs to be kept aside. 

  • IoT is a tool that separates flesh from the bones. 
  • IoT, through its network-driven structure, will filter the information and serve you the information which was “ordered” by you. 
  • It has an immense potential of handling the large volume of data and bifurcating it according to the requirements.
  • With the commencement of every new project, the approach towards tech integration keeps on changing. There should be a way where the integration into technology is seamless. The Internet of Things integrates the top and shop floor levels of the digital manufacturing hierarchy. 
  • It promotes human to human, technology to humans, and technology to technology interaction, which is crucial for realizing the latent potential of the integrating solution.

The IT megatrends can be integrated with the Internet of Things in order to create a more secure system. This may include a merger with big data analytics, robotics, cloud, operational technologies, and much more. This computer to computer interconnectivity is widely used in creating a secure network. 

Did you know fact!

Around 63% of the manufacturers believe the IoT will prove to be a fruitful investment in the next five years and are willing to invest $267 billion in IOT by 2020. 

The trends itself say volumes about the fact that the manufacturers have begun to realize the immense potential of integration solutions but the destination is still far.
