We have introduced you to the idea of Industry 4.0, the concept of IoT (Internet of Things), and what challenges can be solved with them. We’ve illustrated how IoT can be used to help Predict and Prevent Maintenance within your facility. We’ve discussed how to use IoT and Sensors to Improve your Production.
You now have an idea of the sorts of things IoT can do and help with in your Pet Food Facility, but where do you start?
How do you go about implementing IoT?
Luckily, we also have an answer for that. We have comprised a 6 Step Process, which you can view more in-depth by downloading the whitepaper here.
1.) Develop a Plan
“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail” – Benjamin Franklin
2.) Pick the Right Team
“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success” – Henry Ford
3.) Be Honest About the People Side of Change
“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.” – Albert Einstein
4.) Select the Best Technologies That Fit Your Business
“The advance of technology is based on making it fit in so that you don't really even notice it, so it's part of everyday life.” – Bill Gates
5.) Deploy & Implement
“Begin with the end in mind.” – Steven Covey
6.) Follow-Up, Follow-Up, and More Follow-Up
“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” – Jim Rohn
In the end it is all about using IoT, sensors at the floor level, industrial networks and controls to collect data to a common central location for the entire plant. By following this successful 6 Step Process you and your team will be able to create a logical plan towards your goals to improve operational excellence, safety, productivity, efficiency, and cost.
