Collaboration between equipment builders and manufacturers boosts performance
IoT-enabled assets and machines can improve operations when information that matters is delivered to the people who can use it best. Yet, equipment builders who invested heavily to build smart machines often are blind to the use and performance of their products after deployment.
Rockwell Automation Pavilion8 Model Predictive Control (MPC) software now empowers engineers to design and execute step tests faster, safer and more accurately. Unlike manual step tests that must be continuously monitored by on-site engineers, the Step Test Assistant in Pavilion8 version 5.12 independently makes adjustments in a test environment to more quickly identify models that drive operations to the maximum level of performance. The easy-to-use tool slashes testing time by up to 30 percent, avoids constraints for safer testing, and helps reduce the need for repeat tests by adapting to and identifying good tests.
If you have intelligent assets in your plants like sensors, devices, machines or other production assets, you have data. Lots of data. By the year 2020, more than 50 billion devices are expected to be connected to the internet. These devices are getting smarter and consequently, will help make manufacturing smarter. Now more than ever, manufacturers can readily take advantage of this growing intelligence through modern technology, such as cloud, mobile and converged plantwide EtherNet/IP.
