IIoT/IoT digitalization and telemetry
Digitalization of production is the process of collecting data through various smart devices and industrial technologies and then processing it.
What is IIoT/IoT digitalization?
Digitization of production is the process of data collection through various “smart devices (IoT – Internet of Things), industrial technologies (IIoT – Industrial Internet of Things) and their subsequent processing in the form of datasets and data models for their further analysis, design of functional algorithms and procedure for production.
Sensors, controllers, but also production equipment, machines and mechanisms provide a large amount of valuable information about the state of individual components and mechanical units as well as about the state of the production process as a whole.
Digitization of production does not bring only one-time improvements, but since it is a process in which several independent smart components operate and communicate with each other, they can coordinate their activities and thus optimize the entire production process.
Our solutions are build in the Microsoft AZURE environment, which offers us almost unlimited possibilities, both for connected devices via the IoT Hub and for the scope of the service provided. At the same time, it is a guarantee of cyber security, connectivity and modularity of the solution.
Data analytics and predictive maintenance enable companies to analyze vast amounts of data and identify patterns and trends. Build data algorithms makes it possible to predict production problems and perform maintenance before they occur and stop the production.
Telemetry or remote measurement is a method of collecting and transmitting the data of a measured quantity at a distance. This form of data collection is used, for example, for fleet monitoring, ATMs, self-service machines, alarms, but also for measurements from online sensors.
Since we already have available data directly from the production process, we have the possibility to simulate the production process as a whole or only its individual parts. Simulations will not only help us fine-tune the entire production process, but also reveal critical points where may be shortages or production stops. Since the simulations are performed on “real” data, this way we can simulate the production of new products, new processes and also evaluate the economic benefits of the change.
With digitized production, in addition to the production process itself, we also have under control the production imputs, the consumption of energy, raw materials and human labor, as well as the quality of the products, more flexible production to changes in customer needs and trends, which gives us a competitive advantage.
Modernized production processes can be more efficient and greener, which helps companies meet set environmental standards and reduce their environmental impact.
