Going digital is a big question for any organization. The goals of the digital change and its implications must be driven and defined on a higher level of the organization.
The insight of how the knowledge, extracted from the data, will affect the organization and benefit its operations and value delivered to customers, must be key. In the lowest level the actual deployment of the IoT happens in the device and communication layer.
SSF offers support in all phases of the digital transformation.
We see effective deployment of IoT as an iterative four stage process.
- Device: At the first step, it is about understand the target device, what actions should be logged, what on-board built-in tests can be run, what sensors are needed to follow the equipment and the environment adequately.
- Monitoring: When basic logging and diagnostics are in place we can do remote diagnostics and simple condition based monitoring, which allow smoother and better reactions to special events.
- Data to Knowledge: Once data streams are available, we can build analytics which predict service needs, measure quality and performance of the equipment. This may require combining equipment information with other data such as position, weather, etc.
- Optimization: By analyzing the equipment in a system and process context we can optimize the system performance improve the operating processes. Optimization can give feed back to the next generation of equipment design.
SSF can help you at any stage of the process and improve your deployment results!
