IoT Device Management Services Increase Productivity and Optimizes Capacity
A large number of activities that people are involved in today involve several advanced equipment and very high levels of automation through internet of things or IoT device management services. This involves real time analytics, machine learning, object sensors and embedded systems that come together to make IoT work wonders with processes and technologies. For those who are confounded with all these terminologies and jargons, it’s far simpler to touch base with communication technologies like cellular, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth among others that are needed to make IoT work.
Connecting devices and equipment
An automated mineral water bottling plant won’t be able to function without IoT solutions helping the smooth and seamless flow of the process. It begins with cleansing of the reusable 20 litre bottles after they return to the bottling plant from the point of sale (POS). The bottles pass through several levels of inspection and cleansing on automated machines till all of them meet the laid down standards of purification. Thereafter, the bottles enter the line where they get filled and sealed again to be sent back into the supply chain.
Automating mundane functions
This entire process from cleansing to filling and sealing involves hardly any human intervention other than operating the IoT control panel that interconnects all the devices and equipment involved in the process. The IoT device management services that integrate all the functions and processes at the bottling plant essentially use one or more of the communication technologies such as cellular, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. This kind of automation is freeing up resources from mundane processes that have become redundant with time.
Analysis of an ever-increasing load of data
The more data an IoT solution is able to process, the better it is suitable for integrating heavier operations involving different types of machines combining to make a process functional. The bottling operation mentioned above would also have a fair amount of customer feedback that would require serious attention as it is closely connected to the market reputation of the product. At the same time, a lot of other critical data about the wear and tear of the bottles, the stability of chemicals used in the purification process and many other data needs to be processed seamlessly for smoother IoT operations.
How IoT enlarges the scope of operations
When certain mundane functions are automated with IoT device management services it does free up many personnel for other more productive and meaningful functions. One such function involves the device management setup that enables seamless operations of the IoT system that has been installed. The logistics arm of the bottle supply chain may require additional hands to handle deliveries to a larger market. On the other hand, a larger operation may open up opportunities in the monitoring of the different equipment that have been integrated with IoT enabled automation. It really depends on the management of the company to plan and execute the reshuffle of their resources and optimize operations.
