The Untapped Potential of the IoT and Smart Utilization of Heavy Industrial Assets
IIoT projects work best with an outcome-centric approach coupled with design thinking, which applies new-age technologies in the context of a domain to create tangible impact for sustainable competitive advantage.
Connecting Smart Assets With the IIoT to Drive Better Insights and Predictive Maintenance
The possibilities are endless—inventory management becomes a dynamic insight-based procurement for inventory optimization; condition-based monitoring can provide real-time insights to dynamically plan for field force optimization; and operational insight can combine with environment and context to decide control actions for performance optimization.
Despite the Possibilities of Smart Assets and the IoT, Challenges Still Remain
Often, research and development teams have high expectations for data collection and are thus disappointed when the data arrives to the cloud and only a fraction of it can be utilized for value. By utilizing smart data in real time, connected more through asset-management process, the IIoT brings discipline to ensure value-realized aligns with value-envisioned. Business case takes the precedence. IIoT projects work best with an outcome-centric approach coupled with design thinking, which applies new-age technologies in the context of a domain to create tangible impact for sustainable competitive advantage.
Smart and connected assets create the base for innovation by design. Intelligent assets feed the information to perform advanced analytics for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to better control the product lifecycle, which helps with innovation because owner-operators can sell outcome instead of service. They can create entirely new business models linked to outcome, enabling a fundamental shift in business models geared toward the consumerism trend in the business-to-business world.
