IIOT and Data Analytics
SCADA & Data Analytics
Data analytics is useful in predictive manufacturing and is a major asset for industrial technology development. To assist manufacturers in maintaining a competitive edge in operational management control and in improving their production efficiency and yield rates, Automate has developed a data analytics solution with integrated ensemble learning capability. An advanced machine learning algorithm analyzes process data collected from production systems to provide early warning for anomalies and system failures and to predict product quality.
Industrial Internet of Things - IIOT
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) refers to interconnected sensors, instruments, and other devices networked together with computers’ industrial applications, including, but not limited to, manufacturing and energy management.
This connectivity allows for data collection, exchange, and analysis, potentially facilitating improvements in productivity and efficiency as well as other economic benefits. The IIoT is an evolution of a Distributed Control System (DCS) that allows for a higher degree of automation by using cloud computing to refine and optimize the process controls.
A manufacturing execution system (MES) is an information system that connects, monitors and controls complex manufacturing systems and data flows on the factory floor. The main goal of an MES is to ensure effective execution of the manufacturing operations and improve production output.
An MES helps achieve that goal by tracking and gathering accurate, real-time data about the complete production lifecycle, beginning with order release until the product delivery stage for finished goods.
MindSphere is an open cloud platform or “IoT operating system” developed by Siemens for applications in the context of the Internet of Things (IoT). MindSphere stores operational data and makes it accessible through digital applications (“MindApps”) to allow industrial customers to make decisions based on valuable factual information. The system is used in applications such as automated production and vehicle fleet management.
