Computer technology has majorly impacted many businesses, accelerated development cycles, increased efficiency and provided a more complete operational outlook. At one time, applications such as accounts receivable and payroll operated autonomously with little to no integration. But applications such as these are now melded into cohesive financial systems. A similar transformation is about to occur in the industrial discrete parts manufacturing market. Intelligence, which was once housed in standalone devices, such as programmable logic controllers, is about to be shared throughout the enterprise from the start to the end of the supply chain. A new generation of intelligent endpoints, dubbed the Internet of Things (IoT), is being created. As a result, a manufacturer gains insight into real-time operations and can manage the operation more effectively.

The change can positively impact the bottom line in many ways. Industrial automation corporations can determine the wear and tear on robotic arms and make adjustments as needed. While interest in the potential benefits is high, industry suppliers must clear some significant hurdles. One challenge has been extending networking capabilities out to these different elements. In general, assembly line items like sensors have had little to no intelligence and building the ecosystem to collect, interpret and proactively use the data represents a monumental undertaking—basically a revamping of the manufacturing process while the operations are running. Some have described the process as painting a bus while it is moving. Recently, new networking technologies, cloud computing, big data, analytics and security have emerged to help companies move down this path.

Market changes have presented suppliers with new challenges. The traditional boundaries are blurring and suppliers need to determine their business focus. The success of Amazon illustrates the potential as the challenges for manufacturers today. The firm began as an online retailer but has emerged as a technology powerhouse. Amazon has been successful beyond the retail marketplace. Traditional industrial automation suppliers will need to figure out their value-add and role in this rapidly changing marketplace. Computer technology has been in a period of profound change, one that market research firm International Data Corp. (IDC) has referred to as the Third Rail. The company sees fundamental change in how systems operate as well as their capabilities.

Cloud computing is becoming the new data center, with central resources no longer always located on the customer’s site. Instead they may be located in the vendor’s data center. Big data, which are large database management systems coupled with analytic solutions, are becoming the new way of running a business. The Internet of Things is adding intelligence to endpoints. Consequently, companies are able to use technology in new and exciting ways. But fitting the pieces together will not be easy. Manufacturing is a specialized market, one with high demands and significant competitive pressures. New interfaces and integration challenges await those who want to be on the leading edge—success is not guaranteed.
