Headquartered in Phoenix, AZ, Avnet, Inc. focuses exclusively on the unique needs of embedded OEMs, solution providers, and independent software vendors. Our broad range of product lifecycle management services provide flexible options that support you from solution development through delivery including concept design, engineering, manufacturing, systems integration, order management, warehousing and logistics.
Our lives are touched daily by the Internet. It widens our horizons and improves our capabilities by connecting us to a wider community and their collective knowledge. A similar revolution in industry is connecting intelligent machines and the collective data generated from a growing number of electronic sensors. We are ‘seeing, hearing, and feeling’ our industrial processes like never before and this empowers the decisions we make to optimize performance. This revolution allows us to operate machines more safely, with greater efficiency, and with lower environmental impact, not just individually, but as complete systems, working in harmony to enhance power and productivity for a better world. For over a decade ABB has been working to develop and enhance process control systems, communications solutions, sensors and software for the Internet of Things, Services and People (IoTSP). These technologies enable their customers in industries, utilities and infrastructure to analyze their data more intelligently, optimize their operations, boost their productivity, and their flexibility. ABB is advancing the IoTSP by helping their customers develop their existing technologies, while keeping sight of our enduring commitment to safety, reliability, cyber security and Data Privacy.
In the near future, billions of pieces of equipment will be connected to one another and massive amounts of data will pouring in. Advanced algorithms, high-powered computing, better connectivity and cloud storage all facilitate the emergence of smart systems. Knowing how to leverage the respective opportunities, however, requires a unique set of skills. Siemens has the engineering, domain and digital know-how to generate performance improvements across the entire value chain, from design to production and operations to maintenance. Digital simulation technology accelerates the plant design, the installation and commissioning as well as the entire product design and production planning process. Multiple components in systems and plants can be intelligently networked to communicate with each other and exchange real-time data. Machine Learning makes complex systems more efficient without human intervention. The intelligent analysis of operational data helps identify patterns and predict potential downtimes. Minimum downtimes boost reliability thanks to lifecycle services.
Many areas of our lives have already been changed by the Internet of Things, and industry is no exception. By blending the real and the virtual worlds of production via the internet, the IoT makes it possible to connect all parts of the production process: machines, products, systems, and people. This means that machines and products can communicate so they can manage themselves and each other. Software-based system and service platforms will play a major role in tomorrow’s manufacturing; they are the only way to bring connectivity, including data analysis, to machines and workpieces in production. Bosch's software solutions for connected manufacturing and logistics gather, visualize, analyze, and monitor machine, process, and sensor data. They then translate this data into useful information that serves as a source for their rule- and process-based actions. The transparency this creates allows clients to determine precisely where to optimize production and logistics processes along the entire value chain.
