Sensor data and analytics, powered by a robust Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solution can help manufacturers gain actionable insights into the behavior and performance of their tools in real time. With earlier and more accurate information, maintaining tool health becomes easier, which leads to better product yield, higher quality, and lower maintenance costs.
Intel has been investing in factory automation for over three decades, and specifically in IoT for the last 10 years. We began with collecting data at various factories and applying advanced analytics to solve problems, but growing process complexity required more advanced tools and methods. As compute performance increases and data storage costs decrease, we have continually advanced our analytic solutions to create better insight into our manufacturing process.
