A Formula for IIoT Success

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) evolution and revolution depends on access to and use of real-time, reliable and valuable information by the right people at the right time.

Join Ted Masters, President and CEO, FieldComm Group, and Joel Holmes, Principal Engineer Site Electrical Reliability for Monsanto, in a live webinar discussing the benefits and value of transitioning from a reactive to a predictive maintenance strategy. Ted will introduce his formula for IIoT success: Connect + Integrate = Value.

Joel Holmes of Monsanto, Muscatine, Iowa, will explain how they transitioned from reactive to predictive maintenance to improve operations and reduce costs through a digital transformation connecting to HART and FOUNDATION Fieldbus devices and integrating the information to deliver value to the enterprise.

Smart choices start with smart devices - is anyone listening?

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) evolution makes use of the information provided by your installed smart measurement devices. The value of this information depends on access to and use of real-time, reliable information, allowing smart choices to be made. Integrating the information so that effective action gets taken depends on a network infrastructure that breaks down traditional “silos of information”. Most importantly, all of this valuable digital information can only make the user more effective if someone is listening for it!

John Rezabek, Process Control Specialist, Ashland, Inc., uses real-world examples of how big data and the IIoT, through the use of diagnostic data and alerts, can lend some useful insights, but human experience and actions are essential to improve operations and reduce costs. Greater access to data facilitates a digital transformation and starts with the information from FOUNDATION Fieldbus and HART devices integrated into the enterprise.

In this webinar you will:

  • Learn how to maximize your installed smart measurement assets to improve operations and lower cost
     
  • Understand ‘real-world’ examples of why smart device need smart people to make smart choices
     
  • Discover how FOUNDATION Fieldbus and HART enabled devices deliver valuable information that is critical to the success of your IIoT initiatives
