IIoT for Utilities in Manufacturing
Be it a large-scale manufacturer or a small-scale production unit, they all require one thing in common, and that is the primary plant utilities, like energy, air, water, and gas. Though considered to be basic, utilities are the essential amenities for the effective functioning of any manufacturing unit, facilitating the production process. Utilities can also be one of the key contributors to the overhead cost of manufacturing. This white paper discusses the typical challenges with managing utilities in an industrial setting, and applicability of IIoT interventions to overcome these challenges and enable improved overall plant efficiency, performance, cost of operations, quality, and safety.
