4.0 is the Magic Number...
Industry 4.0 Is Happening Now!
But what exactly is it, and what could it mean for you?
At first, there was the power of steam. The introduction of hydraulics meant the first machines that could perform tasks for us.
Then, large-scale manufacturing plants brought conveyor belts and assembly lines and impacted global production like nothing imaginable at the time, enabling a soar in productivity and introducing mass production.
Thirdly, almost one hundred years on, developments in electronics gave birth to the computer, allowing workforces to automate production even further.
Now, a fourth industrial revolution is unfolding, connecting the digital and physical worlds and creating new processes that are providing new streamlined solutions to complex problems that were previously difficult to solve or time-consuming.
FilesThruTheAir are proud to have been at the forefront of development for internet-connected environmental data logging. We’re really excited by the possibilities offered to industry by IoT and will be widening our product offering in the coming months.
The Internet of Things is just one of the technologies under the ‘Industry 4.0’ umbrella. IoT is currently booming with innovative uses for connecting things and the possibilities are seemingly endless.
What could IoT and FilesThruTheAir mean for the future of your business?
- Increased growth
- Improved productivity
- Reduced risks in the workplace
- Newly enhanced business models
Incorporating IoT with FilesThruTheAir products into your workplace can help achieve these benefits.
By connecting things like sensors to the internet, the information we need to monitor can be sent directly to the appropriate place or person eliminating the need for manual data checks and data collection. Staff would then be able to undertake more valuable tasks, maximising workload, saving time, and increasing productivity.
It could also be that sensors are implemented in your workplace to perform tasks that were previously not performed. Monitoring factory machinery could offer data leading to significant efficiency gains and help to identify potential failures before they become catastrophic.
These are only some of the reasons why implementing IoT in the workplace could be an advantage to your business. If you like the sound of these possibilities or would like to learn more, keep your eyes peeled on your inbox for future newsletters which will delve deeper into industry-specific uses of IoT in the workplace, and introduce new products that FilesThruTheAir will be offering to help you implement advantageous industrial IoT systems yourself.
