Back in the day, when plant work and record keeping were largely manual and sequential processes, the risks of miscommunication and long gaps between crucial activities were high. Since then, industrial software and technology has developed to a point where knowledge sharing is virtually instantaneous; collaboration is highly simplified; and assets are performing longer, more reliably, and more efficiently than ever before.
The influence of the industrial internet of things (IIoT) on mobility, collaboration, and asset management effectiveness cannot be understated. Its benefits ripple plantwide in ways that could not have previously been conceived, and the degree of interaction and cooperation between diverse stakeholders is growing to unprecedented levels.
Here are six ways that IIoT-powered mobile collaboration is energizing asset management.
