Industrial Automation: Control Services to Reduce Cyber Security Risks

Industrial automation is leading mechanization of businesses to a new level. Software-driven equipment has increased the scope of improving productivity in the face of numerous challenges. Robotic capabilities in the manufacturing plant are not a new concept, but interaction between them, while both share a web-based platform is relatively new. What is even more interesting is that the machines are now connected to the Internet. That is a future already on the horizon for all industry leaders. In today’s world, the emphasis of automation is improving the efficiency, reducing cost of manufacturing, increase in quality of product and productivity by gathering and analyzing the data across plant and across machines. This requires connectivity across plants, machines and Legacy devices. Previously, the main aim was to increase production through automation of machines, but now, through connectivity across plants, machines and Legacy devices and it comes with the risk of product or plant security. A better future, not for nothing The quality of life people share in an enterprise environment brings...

Automating the Automotive Supply Chain

Automating the Automotive Supply Chain

Supply chain for the Automobile sector consists of a manufacturing plant, warehouse, service center, and showroom. Automating these four places can bring more productivity for the automobile manufacturer. Showroom In today’s world, customers need personalized products and manufacturers need to give them options. Manufacturers must be aware of current choices and preferences of the consumer and options should be available to them in advance. This way delay in delivering products can be avoided. For example, the following information is crucial for manufacturers: Whether the customer is buying a bike or scooter Which variant the customer prefers to buy more What they don’t like is vital to take into consideration. Giving something which the other person won’t use is wastage for both manufacturers and customers.

With IoT paving way for connected devices, how is data analytics making businesses more efficient?

With IoT paving way for connected devices, how is data analytics making businesses more efficient?

More data is always an advantage when coupled with the means to use it. Over the last decade, web-based platforms have exponentially improved the way data can be used to one’s advantage over its life cycle. Real-time analytics, cloud networks, and cross-device compatibility have been great achievements. However, they bring us closer to a future that spells or at least seems to spell, u.t.o.p.i.a. for business intelligence. The latest IT implementations have set the ball rolling for organizations to maximize access to data alongside ‘miniaturizing’ the workstation. The hybrid architecture concept leads the way to organizations perceiving dependency on globally connected devices, internal devices, and external sources of raw data, correlations, etc. In such an environment, organization workers may be connected through personal devices to sensor-based utility devices, smart machines, stock markets, global weather systems, smart homes, and smart offices. A telling sign that they will, is increasing adoption of web-based platforms to ensure seamless data flow and robust analytics, which communicate via personal devices as well. Factors currently...
