The pace of change and competition is accelerating in production environments. As manufacturers look to improve operations, an industrial internet of things (IIoT) strategy is increasingly essential.
Workhorse equipment should last decades, but they pose a fundamental challenge: how can legacy assets support new applications necessary for game-changing digital innovations? A standardized connectivity layer can solve this challenge, launching organizations into the next phase of industrial automation solutions.
The experts at Control Engineering have authored a deep dive into the four biggest connectivity challenges for businesses trying to build an IIoT enabled smart plant or factory. Take the first step and learn how connecting industrial machinery can enable analytics and an automation platform. Read manufacturing success stories that illustrate how connectivity has unlocked improvements to efficiency, productivity, and safety.
