Manufacturing the smart way
IIoT has come a long way from the days of simple data collection. Technologies such as industrial edge, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and virtual and augmented reality are among the wonderful (and very useful) technologies available to manufacturers.
Collectively, says Siemens Australia and New Zealand Market Development Manager (Food and Beverage) Milan Bawa, all of these technologies are playing an important role in shifting traditional manufacturing to smart manufacturing.
