Key Challenges

Key Challenges

Traditional manufacturing execution systems (MES) often pose challenges when integrating IoT solutions. Many MES systems were designed before the emergence of IoT, limiting their ability to incorporate data from various sensors on the factory floor. As a result, data is isolated, valuable insights are lost, and manufacturers are unable to fully harness AI/analytics to optimize their operations. Integrating legacy MES systems with IoT devices can become complex, given the proprietary nature of many IoT devices and protocols. Additionally, implementing IoT solutions for existing machinery and sensors requires careful consideration of communication protocols and scalability.
