Success Path
Everything you need to implement Industrial IoT in your manufacturing plants

Measure Business Impact

Revisit the goals and metrics you established for your Industrial IoT project. Then, gather the data you need to measure success.

This step has 1 task:

Evaluate metrics

Revisit the goals your organization set in your measurement strategy. Review which metrics you measured to establish a baseline. Then, gather the metrics for your current state (now that your IIoT application is functioning as expected). If you don’t have access to the data you need, reach out to the plant manager or leader. Finally, compare the post-deployment metrics to the pre-deployment baseline.

We recommend you wait 30-90 days—depending on your use case—to gather post-deployment metrics. While it’s likely your organization will see improvements almost immediately, some metrics require several weeks of data to properly measure. Especially if workers are slow to adopt the solution. Account for unplanned benefits that IIoT has provided to your organization: there may be less-tangible value to your operations that’s worth highlighting.

Share the results with the project sponsor, organizational leaders, plant managers, and other stakeholders.
