Industrial enterprises around the world are retooling their factories with advanced technologies to boost manufacturing flexibility and speed, achieving new levels of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), supply chain responsiveness, and customer satisfaction in the process. This renaissance reflects very real pressures industry players face today. For years, traditional factories have been operating at a disadvantage, impeded by production environments that are “disconnected”—at the very least strictly gated—to corporate business systems, to supply chains, and to customers and partners. Managers of these traditional factories say the feeling is akin to flying blind. These are operations where plant floors, front offices, and suppliers operate in independent silos, where managers have only hazy visibility into downtime and quality problems, and where the root causes of inefficiencies are rarely understood or addressed.

Automation will inevitably have a continued impact on the workforce. It will eliminate some jobs, modify others, and create new ones. To keep our position as the industrialized world leader, we need a skilled U.S. workforce that’s ready to fill manufacturing jobs of the future. Learn about the five ways automation will ultimately change the manufacturing workforce.

Before creating new technologies, we must think about how to create the right values to be also able to sell it. All the technology that is required for “Industry 4.0” is available today already, so in fact Industry 4.0 can be seen more than an innovation driver for new businesses that are not exploited today, than an innovation driver for technology. If these existing technologies are assembled properly together and combined with the right business models, there is really good chance to profit from Industry 4.0. This white paper looks into the ways one can profit from Industry 4.0 by differentiating through new business models.

The challenges facing industrial companies grow more daunting by the day. Globalization, energy markets that change in real time, variations in materials and prices, aging of the industrial workforce, inability to attract the next generation of Talent, and difficult regulatory pressures have all contributed to an extremely stressful industrial business environment. Fortunately, the right automation system can now offer cutting-edge packaging solutions for meeting at least three of these challenges.

The fourth industrial revolution is well underway. It focuses on digital transformation and creation of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). A key part of this revolution is technology that enables new realities—including virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR). These new realities are already being applied in industrial settings and are poised to grow exponentially in the next few years. This storyscape dives into use cases for each type of reality and presents the benefits of each in relation to industrial automation.

New digital technology now makes it feasible to integrate process control and SIF within a common automation infrastructure. While this can provide productivity and asset management benefits, if not done correctly, it can also compromise the safety and security of an industrial operation. Cybersecurity and sabotage vulnerability further accentuate the need for securing the safety instrumented system (SIS). Certainly, a common platform approach using similar hardware and software dedicated for control and safety functions, respectively, can provide the potential for cost savings. However, it is widely acknowledged that utilizing separate, independent, and diverse hardware/software for safety and control is the optimal way to protect against potentially catastrophic common cause and systematic design and application errors. Different vendors offer varied degrees of integration and solutions. The question is: how to provide an integrated control and safety solution with advanced functionality and productivity without compromising safety and security? And, where do users draw the line? A third-party (e.g., TÜV) certification of the hardware/software systems to IEC 61508 specifications carries significant advantages, but should this be the only criterion? How does a third-party certificate extend to the plant’s overall assignment of risk reduction credits for all independent protection layers (IPL)? Control system embedded safety logic solvers may actually increase the SIL requirements of the SIF if no credit is allowed for the distributed control system (DCS) as an IPL.
