This paper outlines an Internet of Things (IoT) solution very similar to one implemented in an Intel manufacturing facility to show how data analytics applied to factory equipment and sensors can bring operational efficiencies and cost savings to manufacturing processes. The Intel pilot is forecasted to save millions of dollars annually along with additional return on investment business value.1 Likewise, this paper presents a solution that can help manufacturers benefit from the revolutionary advances in computer processing power, database technology, and tools for big data.
