As in many other areas of our everyday lives, the Internet of Things is also becoming prevalent in manufacturing, where it connects real and virtual worlds of production. The fusion of these two worlds via the Internet enables manufacturers to connect all machines, products, and systems along the value chain. This means that machines and products can now communicate with each other. Moreover, they can independently control each other.
Those changes will also increase agility and flexibility in the production process. It will enable us to individualize even the smallest volumes to a high degree while retaining optimum productivity, thereby optimizing multi-variant series production. It will allow companies to involve their customers more closely in the production process and to react faster to changing market requirements.
In this webinar, Dr. Verena Majuntke will explain what impact the Internet of Things will have on manufacturing and how it might change business for manufacturers.
