IIoT for the Fab Shop: Connect , Measure, Analyze and Improve
Metal formers and fabricators continue to seek tools to help solve production pains, an exercise that increasingly leads them to discovering the benefits of software solutions―many anchored in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Such software products can remove the blind spots that prevent managers from gaining a clear and accurate picture of shop performance. Using IIoT software, managers can collect and analyze production data, and when that information flows directly into a facility’s ERP/MRP system, they can take swift and decisive action to improve productivity and profitability.
