Today the Cloud represents the fruition model that makes Information Technology increasingly ready to respond to rapid changes in the context. Organizations are increasingly “data-driven”, and Data Analytics, a set of quantitative and qualitative approaches to obtain “valuable insights” from data,

It starts to become clearer and clearer the connection between artificial intelligence and sustainability. AI is on its way to help the world become more sustainable and that is no different for the manufacturing industry. Necessarily, the road implies addressing

It’s time to plan around unplanned downtime. From mine sites in Siberia to sugarcane plantations in central Uganda, worksites rely on heavy machines to be the workhorses that drive productivity. For the most part, the machines work well. But there’s a lot

The Internet of things has been highly beneficial in the manufacturing industry. IoT enables manufacturers to scale up equipment capable of noticing and servicing, allowing the industries to estimate correctly how the equipment is being used. But which are the

Manufacturing will be the sector that more than others will benefit from 5G, which will allow not only a reduction in production costs, reducing downtime, waste of resources and maintenance needs, but also new solutions that were previously technically and

IT and OT systems developed on different tracks because they did different things. Where IT was based on data that could be used at the factory floor level and was often utilized, OT was designed to use the power of

I have always been fascinated by innovation and startups power. I found about the Alpha startups program offered by Web Summit only in 2018. Some of these IoT startups have evolved quite a lot since then. This article lists a

What if your production equipment was always available as planned?  What if your cycle time was never compromised because of a damaged machine?  What if your production equipment self-detected and alerted you of quality defects? Applying Real-time Maintenance (RtM) technologies to your production

Despite the new urgency within the manufacturing sector, there are still IIoT challenges for adopters to overcome. These include: Capital Expenditure While small and medium-sized companies that were early adopters came out with a competitive advantage, it is still true that many
