Smart Building Management System

Posted by Kari Grosser on Sep 24, 2018 9:25:00 AM

With continuing advancements in information and communication technology (ICT), the intelligence level of smart buildings is increasing. Using advanced construction, computing, communication and control technologies, building managers and construction companies can optimize the structure, system, service and management of buildings according to specific requirements to create an efficient, comfortable and convenient building environment. However, smart buildings typically comprise numerous systems (such as air conditioning, electricity, lighting, access control and fire detection systems) that are generally sourced from different manufacturers or system suppliers. If these systems are simply automated without integration and comprehensive coordination, the benefits of smart buildings will be difficult to achieve.

Intelligent Factory Connectivity

Posted by Kari Grosser on Jul 18, 2018 10:30:00 AM

As manufacturing companies expand and leverage their scale and manufacturing capacity, one of the major challenges they face is to improve their operational efficiency. However, most plants have numerous complex systems that are critical for managing scheduling, production, inventory and quality data - especially if the company owns several factories in different cities, which complicates management. What is needed is an easy and effective approach to supervising each factory and sharing information across multiple sites.

Palm-size Embedded Computer Provides Cost-effective Preventive Maintenance for Industrial Band Saws

Posted by Kari Grosser on Apr 25, 2018 10:25:00 AM

Based on the concept of Industry 4.0, intelligent factories should not only strive for manufacturing technology innovation but also focus on machine monitoring and preventive maintenance, which is an important part of optimizing the production process. Unlike traditional periodical maintenance or emergency break-down repair, preventive maintenance can detect and troubleshoot hidden faults in advance. Take the metal-cutting band saw as an example; equipment manufacturers can collect and analyze data to predict when, after thousands of cutting operations, saw blades or other components will wear out. Meanwhile, plant managers do not have to urgently call their suppliers to arrange for repairs on damaged machines, thus recording equipment downtime and increasing overall plant productivity while also improving the quality of finished goods.
