No more excuses for companies to delay IoT strategies!

Frequently companies reluctant to invest in the IoT cite their massive investments in legacy production equipment that doesn’t have M2M capacity as a barrier.  However, J & J was able to cut operating cuts by 10% and reduce downtime by 5%.  As a WEF spokesman told The Irish Times,
“The fourth industrial revolution doesn’t always mean newer, more expensive machines. Rather it can mean better communicating with and responding to the technologies you do have… By implementing simple internet-of-things devices across a range of machines that were never intended to ‘talk’ to each other, the Depuy Synthes factory created real-time digital twins of its factory equipment to monitor performance.”
Another of the nine, P & G’s Rakona plant in the Czech Republic, has also brought an existing plant up to date with the IoT. Built in 1875, it “can seamlessly change the product being manufactured with a push of a button, an innovation that reduced costs by 20% and upped output by a whopping 160%.”">Stephenson blogs on Internet of Things Internet of Things strategy, breakthroughs and management
