In today’s market, discrete manufacturers must stay focused on traditional objectives — increasing uptime and throughput in the plant and closely managing costs throughout their operations. At the same time, they must also create and offer more integrated products and services and even new business models to enhance the customer experience. These new offerings incorporate increasing amounts of technology — including Internet of Things. Indeed, by 2018, nearly one-third of industry leaders will be disrupted by competitors that are digitally-enabled. For manufacturers, this IDC white paper examines the current and future Internet of Things (IoT) imperative for the following discrete manufacturing industries: automotive, aerospace and defense, high tech, and industrial machinery. We highlight IoT-enabled scenarios — those possible both now and in an Industry 4.0 future with smart manufacturing.
