Improving Manufacturing Productivity and Quality with the IIoT
Martin outlined his views on how manufacturers can utilise the IIoT as a tool to improve their productivity and quality, to increase their global competitiveness. He gave examples of projects Metis Automation has completed, using our MES Software Tascus, giving a real competitive advantage. Our clients are using the IIoT to reduce manual planning and data collection in their factories to deliver higher quality, more customised products to their customers.
