Industrial Internet of Things and Enhanced Reliability
With the advent of the Industrial Internet of Things, there is a real opportunity to optimize maintenance and improve reliability. However, in order to achieve these benefits, one needs to take a completely different approach for the sensing, communicating, storing, analyzing and visualizing the data.
In this session, you will gain an understanding of the following:
1. What is the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)
2. How the 5 main components of IIoT apply to the maintenance and reliability world.
3. Examine some of the potential “sweet” spots
