Abstract

In recent years AI, advanced analytics, IoT, machine learning, cloud platforms, etc have emerged to be applied to the manufacturing space, creating the concept of “Advanced Manufacturing”. Among these varied initiatives, IoT serves as the fundamental technology area, linking the other innovative areas with each other and the traditional manufacturing sphere. This interconnectivity generates a seamless information ecosystem.  It provides opportunities to evolve and improve the manufacturing industry with further integration of digital technologies in the form of data analytics, preventive maintenance, etc. These new improvements lead to a new competitive landscape as early adopters outstrip their traditional competitors.

  • Insight into current and future trends for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)
  • Case Study evidence of global partnership synergies
