Pattern Implementation in the Manufacturing Domain
One of the domains where IoT has contributed (and is expected to contribute further) significantly to digitalization efforts is the manufacturing domain. The prime reason is that this domain stands to gain the most from obtaining real-time visibility into manufacturing operations, identifying optimization opportunities, and automating the existing manual processes (e.g., automating the inspection of goods by analyzing the video feed as it moves over the assembly), resulting in increased operational efficiency.
Most manufacturing plants already deploy automation to a certain extent (e.g., Computer Numerical Control or CNC). Machines are used to perform repetitive tasks such as welding, milling, ...
