The industrial internet of things (IIoT) is revolutionizing the way industries operate, and it has a key role in increasing efficiency and the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
One of its benefits is its ability to identify inefficiencies and take preventive action. By continuously monitoring equipment and processes, companies can get ahead and control where and when inefficiencies happen and reduce waste, which also leads to significant cost savings. By harnessing the power of Industrial IoT sensors, companies can optimize operations, and help prevent unplanned downtime by alerting operators to potential issues before they result in costly breakdowns.
Manufacturing organizations have been collecting data massive amounts of data for for some time now so, what's new? While this is a true fact, making sense of the data, being able to access it in real-time, and contextualizing is what truly make the difference in terms of environmental impact and efficiency. And here is where IoT (internet of things) technology makes it possible.
The benefits go beyond simple automation of processes to play a crucial role in reducing GHG emissions. By monitoring energy usage and emissions in real-time, companies identify areas to optimize the use of natural resources and reduce their environmental impact. For instance,, by optimizing equipment settings or adjusting production schedules, companies can reduce energy usage resulting in a more sustainable business.
One size doesnt fit all:
While all of this technology is changing the game and opening new possibilities for manufacturers, there are plenty of options and different approaches in the market, and while the challenges are similar, there is around 20% of the process that varies from one organization to another. Being able to customize solutions become key in efficient deployments. At the end of the day, it's not just about the technology and the machines but also transforming the process associated with it that truly makes an impact in achieving sustainability goals.
