LNS Research details a case study with the VP of Global Quality at Jabil.
In manufacturing, there are a number of views on the emerging Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), but many of them ultimately divide into two camps. There are those who are of the opinion the IIoT is nothing new--that machine-to-machine (m2m) communications and automation have been done successfully for years--and there are those that see IIoT as comprising capabilities that advance past this realm and a into new paradigm of manufacturing.
According to our research, which includes inputs from over 500 global manufacturers, while many in the manufacturing industries glimpse what the future IIoT may hold for manufacturing, there is still a wide gap in understanding the full scope of both the framework and opportunity that IIoT is beginning to provide. That's why we put together the infographic below, which provides an illustrative representation of how IIoT is fastening together the seams of traditional system architectures and enabling new data capabilities.
