Year founded: 1979
Smart Connected Operations is a future looking vision that describes what the factory or production line of the future will look like. It will involve Industrial Internet of Things
(IIoT) enabled MOM applications integrated with IIoT enabled assets and IIoT enabled business systems. It is an elemental part of creating the Smart Connected Enterprise and is often where companies have breaks in the strands of the digital thread.
In moving towards this vision, both solution providers and manufacturing organizations are going to have to up the game when it comes to investing in IIoT. These investments will include the creation of new organizations that bring together IT, OT, and business leaders, new technologies that enable connectivity, cloud, big data analytics, and the development of new applications, along with the foresight to see that small pilot projects today could transform entire industries tomorrow.

The Internet of Things
(IoT) is an expansion of internet use that enables people, machines and elements including workpieces and objects to make use of new technological possibilities. All participants, computers and machines require distinct identification and communicate on the same basis. This makes the exchange of information (identification, addressing, data formats, transfer) standardised and uniform. Established technologies (hardware, software) from the IT domain can thus be used in new domains such as production processes and logistics chains.
Rittal is helping many companies participate in the Industrial Internet of Things
(IIoT) connectivity to reach Industry 4.0
integration, by adopting the modular structures necessary to help smart factories stay functional.In the Industry 4.0
era, data-controlled equipment and automated systems not only give managers visibility of what’s happening in their enterprises down to individual work cells, but also the power to effect change and avert disasters when necessary. Companies without an Industry 4.0
philosophy are more likely to be forced to deal with the after-effects of outages and miscommunications caused by data disconnects.
