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
Reports & Data
If the twentieth century was all about the mechanization of physical work, the twenty-first century is all about the mechanization of mental work. We can think of “mental work” as the process of thinking that unfolds when making difficult decisions. These decisions are ultimately what establish a state of understanding or belief. In computing terms, this state of understanding or belief is manifested in cached memory. The challenge of working with cached memory in the world of IoT is heterogeneity—of endpoints, applications, data, and suppliers—and the resulting need to shift from physical-time to logical-time order computing, which prioritizes the relative order in which data is generated, transmitted, and/or processed (think blockchain).
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.
