Smart Manufacturing: Using IoT Data in End-to-End Manufacturing
25 September 2017

We have discussed the various functions we can do with the 4Ms (Man, Machine, Material and Method) of IoT data within the operation of the manufacturing plant. Let’s now explore how IoT data can help in both the pre- and post- manufacturing stages.

IoT in Manufacturing: Making your Factory Smart(er)

We have talked about the 4M’s of manufacturing and the types of data that can be collected in a manufacturing environment. Let’s now look at how we can make use of the data, in increasing order of complexity.

4Ms of Manufacturing
In the last article, we talked about how machines can be connected and how sensor data can be collected for processing. In this article, we look at what data to collect and how to use them.

Internet of Machines: Smart Factory
Machines have been with us for a long time, helping us to build things with greater speed and better quality. From Wikipedia, a machine is a tool containing one or more parts that uses energy to perform an intended action. Machines are usually powered by chemical, thermal, or electrical means, and are often motorized. Mechanization is providing human operators with machines that assist them with the muscular requirements of work or displaces muscular work.

IoT Systems becoming Smart : Artificial Intelligence
09 March, 2017

IoT Systems becoming Smart
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become the latest buzz word in the IT industry. Everything from dish washer, fridge, TV, cars, trolleys, etc., are going to be intelligent like human beings. Even in highly complex games like Go, it has been proven that computers can beat the best human experts. So IoT systems should be equipped with AI and bring even greater value. What do you think?

Adding new capabilities to IoT: Augment
02 February, 2017
In the last article, we talked about activating changes to an IoT system. Now with the ability to control and enhance IoT, what more can we do? In cases where people are involved, user experience, operation, learning, efficiency, and safety are areas we can employ tools to help them. In cases where machines are involved, process design, resource utilization, integration with other sub-systems, effectiveness and safety are areas we can use tools to augment the machines. There are simply too many possibilities. Let's look at some of these techniques below. Fundamentally we want to exploit the use of data and suitable algorithms in tools (eg. visual images overlay) to augment the system..

Making changes to IoT: Activate
21 December, 2016

Making changes to IoT
In the last two articles, I have talked about how information can be gathered and modeled in IoT applications. They can provide much insight to how our Things are working out there, but if we were not able to make any changes, we would not benefit from the additional information we have gathered from the sensors. It is hence important to consider how changes could be "activated" into our Things.

Your First IoT Application: Asset
10 October, 2016

Innovationdesk
In the next few articles, I like to focus our attention on the 5 ‘A’s of IoT introduced in my earlier blog article. Let's begin with the Asset stage, which is what most organizations building IoT application is going to start with. We are going to focus on the major issues in this stage so that you have a good idea of how to get started. Hopefully I can demystify what IoT is all about and how you can deploy IoT.

Is IOT Really All About IoT?
30 August, 2016

Innovationdesk
We talked about security risk in IoT in my last article. Another often related issue is return on investment (ROI). Many enterprises are excited by the promise of IoT but are hesitant about its ROI. Why? I postulate that many IoT projects are evaluated in the same way as any generic IT projects. This means that we look at cost of ownership and the return of the new investment quantified in dollars and cents.

Security Risks of IoT, or maybe not?
29 July, 2016

Innovationdesk
IoT seems to be gaining a lot of mindshare and yet we are not seeing many deployments. So, what seems to be the problem? We have been through many technology hype cycles and troughs of disillusion. Is IoT just going through the gradual stages of adoption, or is it stuck somewhere?

IoT Patterns: The 5 ‘A’s of IoT
15 June, 2016

Innovationdesk
IoT is an approach to apply information technology solutions to areas traditionally outside of information processing. We attach sensors or wearables to things, living or not, to collect the data, analyze them and with the insight, take some actions to improve or innovate our operation of the things around us. This approach can be used in any industry and it is easy to see common patterns emerging from IoT applications in the various industries. I like to propose a maturity model approach towards designing and communicating about IoT applications. This gives us an approach to rationalize the scope and functions of an IoT application as well as to provide a possible roadmap for future expansion. Each stage brings added value or innovation.
