To compete in the future, the enterprise must undergo radical change. Efficient factories may well be more closely described as fully automated and networked machines, that manufacture, test and then deliver products through a logistics process which is little more than the extension of the production line, and with relatively low numbers of personnel involved. Once in service these products can be monitored by wide area connectivity with the enterprise ensuring that the products are used in accordance with their design and warranty criteria, as well as the enterprise being able to feedback usage data into the next generation product development process. We will explore how Industrial IoT reaches beyond industrial automation into areas such as transportation, energy, asset tracking and smart logistics.
