How To Manage Industrial Assets Using Thingworx Manufacturing Apps
Manufacturing is said to be a data-rich but information poor industry. Simply because there’s no information that’s being generated from that data. It has always been a very siloed way of operation.
And up to now, there hasn’t been an ability to ensure that production assets from various vendors can communicate with each other. But going forward, the only way to gain a competitive advantage is to be able to tap into the huge volumes of operational data from these diverse systems.
Retrofitting sensors to old equipment where necessary. And using this information address common challenges such as unplanned downtime and inefficient processes.
And to achieve that, you are going to need a platform that enables you to aggregate data from a wide range of industrial assets and provide actionable analytics on it.
In the video below, I demonstrate on such platform. Thingworx manufacturing Apps Platform, which is a locally installed and browser-based suite of applications that allow you to monitor the health and status of your production assets, and provide you with real-time visibility and insight into production line performance. In the demo, I use MQTT and KepserverEX to collect industrial data and make it available to the platform for analytics.

And it will continue to decrease exponentially. The only way to avoid becoming irrelevant is to get in the habit of reinventing yourself every single day.
