Smart Manufacturing Platforms Assessment
IIoT platform can refer to any piece of software that fills a role in application enablement in an industrial environment. Manufacturers need this software to connect devices, extract data from their equipment, process it, store it, and deliver it to finished applications. No platform does all of this well, but many IIoT platform providers now have partner ecosystems designed to meet the individual needs of any prospective client.
Perhaps the 'platforms' that most suit that word fill the role of an application enablement platform (AEP). AEPs provide a solution for importing data, but they often require partners to provide gateways. Some AEPs provide a ‘one-stop-shop’ that can take the data from a least some devices and might also work like an operating system with an app store. If they keep app development open, they can feature apps built by the AEP provider, apps from partners (which may also call themselves a platform), end users or independent developers, much like smart phone app stores.Continue

Are KUKA Connect, ABB Ability, and FANUC FIELD true cloud robotics platforms? The potential and promises of cloud robotics have been long discussed, but the industry is still in disagreement over the actual implementations. This executive foresight dives into the different aspects of cloud robotics and explores the limitations around the idea. Once again, startups show the industry a future roadmap, but more collaborations and partnerships are required.
In December 2017, ABI Research published the second iteration of the Industrial Internet Connectivity Tracker. The Industrial Internet Connectivity Tracker provides highly segmented data and forecasts through 2026 to support Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) business initiatives and go-to-market plans. It includes three major application segments: Industrial Smart Glasses, Robotics & PLCs and Other Equipment Monitoring. Industrial Smart Glasses are augmented reality (AR) glasses used in manufacturing applications. Robotics & PLCs refers to industrial connected robots and connected programmable logic controllers, and other equipment monitoring covers connections for condition-based monitoring of stationary industrial equipment ranging from weight scales to pumps and tanks, mining equipment, batteries and elevators.
Every client is assigned a key member of our research team, based on their organization’s needs and goals. And, an unlimited number of Analyst Inquiry calls are available to answer your specific questions.
Digital twins will minimize down-time, extend equipment’s useful life and help manufacturers meet new regulations. Early opportunities include monitoring of remote assets such as wind turbines, offshore drilling wellheads, jet engines and energy inverters as well as industrial equipment on the factory floor. When deployed successfully, these sorts of new technologies improve agility and decision-making, build in security and increase the exchanged of ideas between departments to simplify IIoT solutions and drive innovation. This webinar will cover an overview of what the Industrial Internet means today and the trends that will impact new business models and the deployment of new technologies such as digital twins in smart manufacturing.Replay
