St. Paul, MN (April 27, 2020) — Diverse industries — from oil and gas, utilities, mining, agriculture, automotive, discrete manufacturing and beyond — are leveragingThe Internet of Things’ (IoT) to connect the entire supply chain and collect data, driving artificial intelligence and predictive analytics. According to Accenture, by leveraging a network of embedded sensors and devices connected to appliances, vehicles and other equipment throughout their manufacturing floors, warehouses and logistics operations, companies benefit from real-time process monitoring and control. This ultimately makes them better equipped to make faster, better-informed decisions.

IoT technologies are beginning to change the way that products are developed, manufactured, and delivered. As projected by McKinsey, factories are becoming more efficient, ensuring better safety for human operators, reduced downtime and reduced error rates that help save millions of dollars. Key areas in which IoT is poised to have the most impact include:

  • Inventory Tracking and Management: Software and devices installed in warehouses track changes in inventory through an automated system, allowing companies to reassign employees to more cognitively significant tasks.
  • Productivity and Efficiency: IoT devices connected to the network can communicate with each other to drive automation, and they can be monitored and controlled remotely by on-site or off-site personnel. Further, by analyzing different data derived from IoT technology, companies can uncover opportunities for optimization of business processes.

The ‘Matsuura IoT’ is an open source platform, enabling the sharing of information from numerous machines to your production monitoring systems. Remote “status at a glance” visualization of current machine status maximizes and optimizes process efficiency and unmanned production while countering unscheduled maintenance and downtime.
