What is Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)?
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is the use of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies in manufacturing.
Also known as the Industrial Internet, IIoT incorporates machine learning and big data technology, harnessing the sensor data, machine-to-machine (M2M) communication and automation technologies that have existed in industrial settings for years. The driving philosophy behind the IIoT is that smart machines are better than humans at accurately, consistently capturing and communicating data.
This data can enable companies to pick up on inefficiencies and problems sooner, saving time and money and supporting business intelligence efforts. In manufacturing specifically, IIoT holds great potential for quality control, sustainable and green practices, supply chain traceability and overall supply chain efficiency.
Blue Ocean Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)
Blue Ocean Data Solutions specialize in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) especially capturing real time data from machine and various measuring equipment. Those process parameters which are crucial for process stability may include temperature, pressure, mold temperature, process cycle time, machine down time, machine up time, etc. This enable process engineers to have better focus on required process optimization. Furthermore, this is in line with the direction of managing quality variation from the source of problems.
Quality monitoring may consists of stages such as incoming, in-process and out going inspection and measurement. Those measurement data may include diameter, hole position, surface roughness, length, thickness, profile of surface, etc. Through real time quality data capturing combines with big data analytics, it provides quality engineers and management with crucial information on what happening in the shop floor. Significant cost and time saving will be achieved through “PREVENTION approach” instead of “DETECTION approach”.
