Experienced plant owners can probably relate with one of the major contributors to poor-quality products – the manufacturing equipment. One incorrectly aligned, poorly maintained, over-lubricated, or poorly calibrated mission-critical equipment item is sometimes all it takes to ruin a large batch of products.

This may explain why the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has had such quick adoption in the manufacturing industry.

Here are a few ways it can improve your maintenance management drive:

Considering all the above, it’s no surprise that the manufacturing industry is leading other sectors in the IoT revolution.

Now more than ever, machines are becoming smarter and are making production faster, more profitable, and safer for humans. Manufacturers need optimum real-time communication between machines and their operators, even from remote locations, to really reap the benefits of their investments.
