• Smart Manufacturing and IIoT Division

    Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a very important technology affecting the field of Automation. IIoT is convergence of IT, OT and Communications. It deals with cyber-physical systems and has the power to improve manufacturing processes and outcomes significantly. Thus, it is an important contributor of the 4th industrial revolution.  

    Industrial Automation & Control Systems (IACS) play a very vital role in IIoT. In fact, IACS are the foundation on which IIoT systems operate. Conversely, all major areas of automation in industries are impacted by IIoT and which is a major contributor of Smart Manufacturing, which also connects with Supply Chain, retail, etc. and encompasses advanced robotics, additive manufacturing and so much more.
