How the IoT – internet of things will change manufacturing

Benefits of IoT for Manufacturing

Look around you. It’s no secret that many of the physical objects around us now carry different technological apps that help develop new opportunities. With the internet of things (IoT), devices enter a new ground where they not only interact with us but also among themselves.

If you think this is only a short-term phenomenon, think again. Cisco expects that, by the year 2020, more than 50 billion devices will be connected to the internet. Our cars, our homes… will surely experiment significant upgrades as a result of this changes, but what about manufacturing? How does the internet of things affect our industries?

Take a look at the following developments, as listed by Apple Rubber:

1. Better use of our resources. The cost of detecting which machines are not working properly will continue to decrease thanks to the greater connectivity enabled by the internet of things.

2. Better monitoring. Information will not only flow better inside industrial facilities, but also throughout a company’s systems. We may be half the world away, but data will still reach us in real time.

3. Better integration. The supply chain is often organized with a physical criteria, but coordination will also become a matter of intelligence when machines start communicating among themselves.

4. Better productivity. Sensors improve quantity and quality: a bread manufacturer in the US has doubled its daily figures thanks to the internet of things!
