How to Bring Your Data Infrastructure into the Industry 4.0 Age
Connecting devices and tools on the factory floor is the next big thing when it comes to production. This new wave is perceived as so big that it is called Industry 4.0 or the fourth industrial revolution. It involves a combination of new security systems, Industrial Internet, cloud computing and AI and is based on 4 design principles of Interconnection, Information transparency, Technical Assistance, and Decentralized Decisions.
Upgrading an existing manufacturing solution to Industry 4.0 is not an easy task and can be very costly if not taken the right way. One of the main challenges is to upgrade your current Data Historian solution and get it to a point where it can receive 100x more data from the many devices on the shop floor.
In this webinar, we will look at various Open Source projects that will help you make your historian data available from any device connected to the internet – Interoperability, as it will allow you to match it with contextual data automatically – Information Transparency, and it will enable you to make decisions and receive alerts in real-time – the principle of Technical Assistance. Leveraging those approaches, you will be able to move quickly and avoid expensive licenses and costly IT infrastructure.
