Acquiring the Diversity of Skills for Successful IIoT Implementations

|

As devices gain the capability to communicate with cloud-based systems and then people, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) becomes a key disruptive technology bringing new business optimization opportunities.  IIoT provides new approaches for: SmartProducts: OEMs gain new, high margin revenue with health monitoring subscription services SmartPlant: Optimizing plant processes with improved cost, quality and flexibility SmartCities: Governments better serve inhabitants with utility and infrastructure improvements Those involved in engineering at an OEM, plant or utility usually have expertise with mechanical design or process control equipment. Often, technologies for internet communications, analytics and cloud applications fall beyond their comfort zone.  IIoT applications use a dive...

Can India become the Design House for the world? – Part I

|

India is emerging as the world’s fastest growing economy for 2016 and 2017. Currently, India is a services-driven country. The manufacturing sector in India has been facing challenges due to constantly changing economic, social and technological changes. Its share of manufacturing Gross Value Add (GVA) has hovered around 17-18 per cent since FY2013. The sector is beset with various problems – low productivity, capital and skill intensive, complex labour regulations, frequent power outages, below-par infrastructure, etc. Given its strategic importance to the country’s economy, the Government of India has recognised the revival of India’s manufacturing sector as one of its topmost priorities through the “Make in India” (MII) initiative. This project is expected to create a “global manufactur...

Hi – NASSCOM Research team is working on a report on IoT. This would be released during ER&D Summit 2016 in October. If any of you is interested in participating, please let me know.

The 2016 Hannover Messe: What’s new for the Industrial IoT?

|

A few hours ago German Chancellor Angela Merkel and US President Barack Obama formally opened the 2016 Hannover Messe, or Hannover Fair. Hannover Messe is a huge event with almost 200,000 visitors, and this year the USA is participating as the partner country. An annual event so large is not concerned with only one topic. The major Hannover exhibits are classified under the headings of Industrial Automation, Digital Factory, Energy, Industrial Supply, and Research & Technology. These topical headings are very aligned with the IIoT/Industrie4.0 vision.  While the Hannover Messe is multi-faceted there will be a lot of discussion by participants this year of their deliverables for the IIoT. The exhibition activity and non-stop meetings will really pick up today as the exhibit itself opens...

Smart Connected Products Are at the Heart of IIoT and the Digital Transformation

As is usually the case, some very interesting, and sometimes revealing points come out of the sessions at the ARC Forum. Dr. Uday Despande, Global Director of Electrical Design Systems for Ingersoll Rand made a compelling case for how a new generation of smart, intelligent products are at the core of smart ecosystems, factories, and drives the functionality of IIoT itself. The primary theme of Dr. Despande’s presentation was that smart connected industrial systems had to be based on core elements of connected intelligent products and components.  He also showed that building a smart connected ecosystem of products had to involve a distinct value proposition where connecting things, components, edge devices, edge sensors, and edge computing provides enhanced services in the form o...

Changing Landscapes of IoT

The Internet of Things is evolving rapidly. From connected machines to living in the data-driven world and preparing for challenges, IoT is changing the conventional way of doing business. Here are some reasons to why IoT has become a large opportunity: 1. Low Cost Devices/Sensors & High Battery Life: Most of the IoT systems are dependent on sensors or interconnected devices to transmit the data in almost real time. The availability of such sensors and a connected gateway has created the possibility to generate more device data than any time in the past. 2. M2M & Beyond: M2M was commenced with the intention of devices talking to each other and taking decisions. The whole aspect of mobility and consumerization created a need for combining this Machine Data, with Information T...
