Tom Bianculli, CTO for Zebra Technologies, discussed how manufacturers and their supply chain partners are increasingly recognizing the transformational role of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions in driving growth and improving performance.
The factory of the future needs end-to-end visibility on the plant floor and across the supply chain to improve productivity and increase quality, which is what IIoT uniquely delivers.
Zebra’s 2017 Manufacturing Vision Study indicates that 34 percent of companies surveyed expect to achieve a connected factory by 2022. Manufacturers and suppliers are integrating visibility solutions into their plant floor operations to increase quality, expedite production and reduce costs.
“The benefits of IIoT-based solutions allow companies to work smarter, enhance productivity, create jobs and improve the overall economy,” said Bianculli. “Zebra is committed to bringing IIoT solutions to companies to help them work better and smarter, giving them a performance edge.”
