Industry 4.0: Improving Mechanical Integrity and Reliability with Data Analytics
As technology innovations reshape the industrial landscape, efforts to improve the safety, efficiency
How do businesses transition their Mechanical Integrity programs in the era of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)? Before we drill down into specific aspects of process safety, it is worth reviewing the foundation of this concept. IIoT describes the digitization of industrial assets, operations
The New Control Scheme
Industry 4.0 describes an era in which
With these definitions in mind, the concept of Industry 4.0 is just another configuration of a basic feedback control scheme. Everything that we do in a feedback control scheme involves measuring and monitoring, then using that feedback/data to take more strategic, insight-driven actions toward improving processes and systems within the organization. This process benefits overall supply chain effectiveness.
As a new feedback control scheme, Industry 4.0 and IIoT enable companies to perform advanced data analytics with the goals of improving decisions that impact the budget, production output
