Manufacturing productivity hinges on efficiently converting inputs into outputs, relying on multiple moving parts including physical materials, capital, and labor. During COVID-19 and other times of crisis, manufacturers are under tremendous pressure to stay productive through major changes in their operations as a result of, for example, record demand or having to restart after a complete shutdown.
IIoT technology can offer significant advantages to manufacturers who are looking to sustain productivity and improve throughput during these challenging times. It is imperative, especially at such times, to be able to roll out flexible, quick-to-implement, and easy-to-use solutions that can be integrated into existing OT architectures. Key features to focus on include:
