Factories are now deploying technology through connected devices such as mobile computing, bar code scanning, RFID, wearables, sensors, shelf beacons etc. as part of the Industry 4.0 initiative. This increase of devices linked into manufacturing is leading to a surge in data collection. More data means more opportunities for analysis. Having more performance insights is one of the ends manufacturers are seeking with the industry 4.0 initiative. Automating data collection is one of the main priorities of manufacturers today.
It is also imperative that a strong back office system is available to simply data analysis as an enabler for better decision making. This type of integration provide real time visibility of operations, work in progress and stock positions.
