Share

Jim Brown contributed a post to the Autodesk Fusion Connect site sharing the Top Five Factors for a Successful Industrial IoT Implementation. The post provides an introduction to our Ten Build-Buy Factors for IoT Platforms eBook tailored to Engineers so they can understand not only how to support their company’s IoT initiative, but also how to gain direct benefits for Engineering. Please enjoy the excerpt below and the read the rest on the Autodesk site.

Supporting the Industrial Internet is now an important part of the Engineering domain. For some, it’s because their customers are operating their products in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). For others, it’s because their company is using the IIoT to monitor and control equipment and devices in their own facilities. For many, both are happening at the same time. The IIoT movement changes the game for companies, their customers, and their Engineering department.

The potential value of the IIoT is immense, and companies are responding. Potential benefits range from productivity and cost savings to fundamentally resetting the value proposition and relationship between companies and their business partners, including suppliers, service partners, and customers. Whether a company is pursuing an IoT or IIoT initiative to support customers, improve their own business, or make sure to keep up with the competition, it will have an impact on Engineering.

Adapting Engineering to the IIoT

What do engineers need to do in order to survive and thrive in this brave new world? One thing that’s clear is that the IIoT drives new product design requirements. Beyond products, it also drives significant infrastructure requirements, as discussed in Ten Build-Buy Factors for IoT Platforms. Engineers play a key role in unlocking the IoT and the IIoT value in both areas. This introduction shares some of the ways engineers need to think differently to support company-wide IIoT initiatives. But Engineering can also gain their own value from these initiatives. This introduction highlights the potential benefits Engineering can receive directly from participating in the IIoT, and highlights specific areas in the ten build-buy factors that are the most important for engineers to consider. Let’s get started.

Engineers can play multiple roles supporting IIoT initiatives…….
