Bob Bova, president and CEO of AccuSpeechMobile discussed how IIoT (the Industrial Internet of Things) makes it possible to track and reduce the high costs of maintenance by managing the inspection information on a timely basis in the recent issue of IoTNow magazine.
The use of IIoT is an efficient way to collect data increasing worker safety as well as data integrity. Collected in 24/7 in real-time, data and apps are used all day, every day, and anywhere in the world.
One of the fastest growing areas for IIoT implementation is the MRO market. Adding voice interface to the mix allows for a hands-free MRO process. Keeping hands on a wrench is more productive than looking down and pushing buttons on a screen; voice enabling the interface to these mobile applications is changing the MRO to a best-practice, continuous process, lean manufacturing model. Collecting data becomes a more powerful tool on many levels starting with a standardized process (for everyone using the system).
IIoT integrated voice automation provides detailed error messages, warnings about data that fall out of acceptable ranges, pre-load information already collected in other screens, as well as provide detailed instructions for new or troublesome event reporting.
