Machine Analytics to Make Use of IIoT Data

FactoryTalk Analytics for Machines cloud for OEMs from Rockwell Automation provides intuitive access to machine information.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has increased the availability of information throughout the enterprise by orchestrating data from multiple sources and applying machine-learning applications. But the power of new IIoT tools to improve machine performance is limited when those with access to information are not experts on the machine, leaving powerful machine information untapped. Cloud-enabled analytics provide machine data organized in intuitive dashboards that pull from machines deployed across the globe. A primary display shows a global map indicating every machine at all sites the OEM has subscribed to the service. In addition to the display is summary information on machine status and recent OEE performance. A simple search function then allows service engineers to filter by specific end users, locations or machine types for further analysis. At the machine level, OEMs can also view information about machine states, top events, production counts, cycle time attainment, and custom process variables and counters for the last three months on pre-configured dashboards and drill-down screens. The system requires minimal setup from the OEM, and can be deployed and fully functional in a matter of minutes. A subscription-based model allows OEMs maximum flexibility and low, predictable costs.
