Manufacturing facilities generate massive amounts of operational data from their automated production equipment, condition monitoring devices, and other sensors and systems. As companies are becoming more aware of the potential marooned in these assets, they are asking how Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) initiatives can help tap into this information and create useful insights. But many attempts to tackle this via enterprise-wide mega-projects fail to meet expectations because of the sheer size and complexity. Perhaps a better approach is to begin with “little” data at the source to build up to big data using edge computing, focused applications, and open connectivity.
