Over Half of Manufacturing Companies Increase Their Productivity and Operational Efficiency with IoT
Azure IoT helps companies across a broad range of industries to improve their business operations and meet the demands of today’s supply chain. According to a recent IoT Signals report by Microsoft, over 90% of surveyed organizations have already adopted IoT already.
In the manufacturing sector, according to the IoT Signals report, quality and compliance were the top reasons for IoT adoption, closely followed by need for industrial automation and production flow monitoring. On the benefits side, over half listed increasing the efficiency of operations and allowing employees to be more productive as the top advantages of IoT.
At Roima, we see Azure IoT as a key Industry 4.0 enabler for infinite possibilities in process industry digitalization. MES systems and Azure are critical enablers in bridging the gap to IT/OT convergence, resulting in a more agile, digital, resilient, and sustainable future. Azure solves challenges historically related to migration to cloud computing, such as data volume, on-prem restrictions, security issues, control and governance, multi-cloud as well as cost management.
Many wood processing companies improve their quality and production process efficiency with Azure IoT
In the wood processing industry, for example, efficient production process data pipelines are the key for getting things right the first time, doing efficient root cause analysis on quality issues, and increasing supply chain efficiency. Many wood processing companies improve their quality and production process efficiency by leveraging Azure IoT, combined with Roima’s expertise, in their data pipelines and reporting.
The Azure IoT solutions for wood processing industry range from finished or green lumber quality reporting to wood chips, bark, and log measurement systems.
