More than 70 million people are joining the middle class every year, increasing demand on manufacturing resources and infrastructure. Meeting this demand means being more productive, sustainable and flexible.
Fortunately, the convergence of new technologies including mobile devices, the cloud, and big data, can help securely connect plant information with enterprise systems. With the right network infrastructure and the ability to integrate information across IT and control systems, industrial enterprises can coordinate operations and communications – facilitating a demand-driven supply chain.
By bridging the gap between systems, Rockwell Automation is helping connect industrial enterprises to improve operations.
Manufacturing and Industrial operations will change more profoundly in the next five years than they have in the past 20. They are becoming connected. While this has been the dream for decades, the technology to make it possible was historically prohibitively expensive. The “Internet of Things” and other enabling technologies are changing that. The industry is at an inflection point. Beth Parkinson, director of market development for Rockwell Automation, walks through the flow of an actual production order. Enjoy a glimpse into how the accelerated connection of Information Technology and Operations Technology today enables unprecedented collaboration across the enterprise, linking processes and facilities to suppliers and customers in new ways that result in improved enterprise, plant and supply chain performance....More
