Sage ERP, along with innovations such as the Internet of Things (IoT), is changing how manufacturers view and use best practices. The Internet of Things is the interconnectivity of devices and objects in which software is embedded to track data. Through the IoT, networks can include buildings, vehicles, software, and more. The data derived from the IoT can improve delivery times, production management, safety, and much more, depending on how it is used. Used wisely, the IoT—along with Sage ERP—can provide you with unprecedented amounts of data that can help you manage all aspects of your business better. Monitor Shop Floors One of the innovations affecting manufacturing from the IoT is the ability to monitor conditions on the shop floor. Sensors embedded in equipment, pallets, trucks, and other devices can relay information and make adjustments based on real-time data. For example, think about plant equipment that can get hot during operations. Plant equipment sends temperature data to the HVAC controls, which understands that the rising temperatures may affect quality output. It then adjusts the fans to blow cool air over specific equipment in use, and keep the temperature at an optimal level, so that outputs maintain quality standards. Such equipment […]
