GE unwraps 'Industrial Internet': M2M for planes, trains, manufacturing via @ZDNet

GE unwraps 'Industrial Internet': M2M for planes, trains, manufacturing via @ZDNet | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
At its "Minds and Machines" conference in San Francisco, GE announced new "Industrial Internet" technologies for airlines, railroads, hospitals, manufacturing and energy companies.
Farid Mheir's insight:

The post dates back a little bit but GE continues to focus on this new field they call industrial internet.


Useful data tidbit: a single airplane jet engine captures 5000 data points every second and generates GB of data on every flight. The impact of proper analysis of this data can result in tremendous savons and improvements. For example, a 1% improvement in efficiency in a gas turbine, over 15 years, results 66B in savings! 


GE's challenge is not to capture this data (they do already) but it is to analyze it. IDC estimates that only 0.5% of the world's data is being analyzed. New tools and techniques related to BigData (hadoop, noSQL, etc.) can provide some answers.

Digital Tools Can Help Manufacturing Companies Cut Costs by 30%

Manufacturing companies have historically had an on-off relation with technology. Most have aggressively adopted traditional technologies such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). However, they have been slow in adopting recent digital technologies such as big data analytics, real-time order confirmation, Web-EDI among others. Moreover, most have adopted technologies to varying extent creating a connectivity gap in their operations. We believe digital technologies will help manufacturing companies in eliminating this gap. Our research and project experience indicate that by adopting digital tools, manufacturing companies can cut costs by as much as 30% by enabling savings on capital costs, labor field force among other key cost elements.

Farid Mheir's insight:

Not often do we get insights into measurable benefits that digital tranformation can bring to manufacturing industry. This paper by capgemini highlights those benefits and provides guidance on what it means to have a 100% digital manufacturing, from supply chain to field service.

Hacker Shows How To Attack An Airplane's Systems--Using A Phone

Hacker Shows How To Attack An Airplane's Systems--Using A Phone | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
Weak aircraft security systems seem vulnerable to mobile hacks.
Farid Mheir's insight:
At hacking conferences, hacks have been demonstrated that are specific to attacking and hijacking planes. It leverages communication systems between the plane and the control tower, but also within the plane itself. The solutions require an industry consensus but manufacturers will have to be ready to provide security and updates that are more akin to managing software than building wings and landing gears. To an enterprise architect like I am, it raises questions about software updates on planes, remote monitoring, enhanced security, etc. and the coordination of IT within the engineering process.

Fab Launches First Retail Store, Design-Your-Own Furniture via @mashable | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
Fab is launching its first retail store and new merchandise, aiming to become the world's larget design store.
Farid Mheir's insight:

Interesting how digital transformation goes right into manufacturing, in one-to-one production of customized goods. This goes along with the 3D printer movement where corporations change not only how they sell but what they sell as well.
