What role does IoT play in manufacturing?

  |     |   No comment

The Internet of Things (IoT) may be used in manufacturing to increase product quality and plant availability. Sensors can detect product tolerances during manufacturing and inform operators if the measured values deviate from requirements. Sensors can also be used to monitor machines in order to prevent breakdowns. Bearing vibration may be noticed early on, allowing for planned maintenance rather than emergency maintenance. Motor power consumption may be tracked to forecast failure. IoT assists in keeping production running and within tolerances. This saves money, decreases downtime, and results in higher-quality products with fewer returns.
