Nov. 7, 2016 - It isn’t quite science fiction. There are some advanced manufacturers, distributors, shippers and 3PLs already betting heavily on the Internet of Things (IoT) and its related technologies, with the goal of increasing efficiency across their value chains and maybe even to revolutionize their value chains. The occasional case study involving IoT, drones, robots and smart machines probably makes other manufacturers, those lacking in the capital or culture to dive headlong into the leading edge of Industry 4.0, wonder how to keep up.

Oct. 11, 2016 - At Memex, we are frequently asked questions about both the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0. The questions usually start off, “What do you see happening in [IIoT/Industry 4.0]?” The conversation will quickly zero in on their real concern, which is to find an answer to the question: “What and when should I be doing something with [IIoT/Industry 4.0]?”
Sept. 26, 2016 - TE Connectivity (TE) has joined the OPC Foundation, a vendor-independent non-profit organization which aims to drive the development, maintenance and promotion of Openness Productivity Connectivity — Unified Architecture (OPC UA). This engagement reflects TE’s commitment to the concepts of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)/Industry 4.0, says the company, describing IIoT and Industry 4.0 as the key elements of semantic interoperability and transmission integrity.
Sept. 21, 2016 - Industry 4.0 embraces a collection of technologies and concepts to create “smart factories,” where machines in the production process are able to communicate with each other, both internally and externally via the Cloud. Put simply, connected devices in factories, offices and on the person will become smart networked nodes, interconnected via a standardized network without any hierarchy.
Jul. 15, 2016 - Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technology is becoming increasingly pervasive across every type of manufacturing, production and distribution sector. Companies are connecting equipment, machinery, assets and even office equipment and supplies to monitor, track and gather intelligence across all aspects of the business with the ultimate goal of using this insight to improve production and operational efficiency and reduce waste.
Jul. 6, 2016 - Walter Surface Technologies has published an industry white paper, The Internet of Things Hits the Shop Floor: Metalworking in the Age of Connectivity, which explores “how manufacturing has entered the digital age due to the advances in computing capabilities and wireless technology, the ever-increasing access to the internet, and the proliferation of mobile devices.”
