With the emergence and rapid adoption of smart devices and technologies that can bring legacy, present and future devices on the same platform, Industries now have the base for technology driven process for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
Lighthouse Info Systems is engaged with several large enterprises, helping these companies move from traditional processes to data driven processes. These industries are adopting the IoT ecosystem by implementing sensors and smart devices. Requirements are diverse – encompassing range/network, latency throughput, reliability, security and battery life.
Lighthouse services considers important factors relating to scalability and agility, security and usability of IoT data
IoT solutions are built on architectures like REST API Services that enable seamless connectivity from devices to cloud to edge, big data integrations, and guaranteed data availability, irrespective of network
Lighthouse IoT platform allows building connections with various technologies and protocols which may be legacy, current or future to ensure scalability.
From machine data to asset information for predictive maintenance, predicting quality of finished goods, accurate tracking of materials across production processes.
ERP systems give business intelligence reports and summaries based on calculations on past transactions. With Internet of Things, the data visualizations are actually live and actionable business intelligence- taking advantage of connected devices within the production and supply chain processes – in order to monitor efficiency and operations performance.
An Industrial Goods Manufacturer wanted to build a complete solution for their manufacturing plant in which all the material inventory from raw material and finished goods bundles & coils could be identified, monitored and tracked.
The solution involved placing RF tags on the package to monitor the movement of the item across the store and tracking the same. It was further integrated with the ERP system to automatically reconcile inventory transactions from receiving, issuing and consuming the goods. This efficiency was possible due to RFID devices which enhanced ERP utility.
The supply chain is no longer a stock statement with warehouses or store location but a constant detailed visibility at a SKU level.
Data from IoT with respect to availability, performance, and quality can be processed , analysed and shown in real time by ERP systems.
ERP systems can analyze the best product mix to run on the production line, specific parameters such as line speed, and identify equipment failure to take proactive steps.
If you are able to detect deviations from accepted norms when the product is being produced, you can immediately stop the line and fix the process. This would help managing production operation for greatest operational efficiency.
