JD Edwards & the Industrial Internet of Things
How The Internet Of Things Is Increasing Productivity
Combining the power of Oracle JD Edwards with the Industrial Internet of Things (IOT) is enabling companies around the world to increase their productivity and improve outcomes for their customers.
The capability to securely and tightly integrate the JDE platform with internet of things devices using the Orchestrator is giving businesses the power to automate common business processes that are triggered or initiated by IOT devices, such as rack sensors, temperature gauges and water level monitors.
Integrating The Internet Of Things With Your ERP
JD Edwards has embraced the Internet Of Things to enable customers to create opportunities for more direct integration of the physical environment into the business computing systems. This has obvious benefits relating to improvements in monitoring, efficiency, reduced human interventions and greater automation.
A presentation at a recent JD Edwards summit that covered IOT Applications for Manufacturing, set out the concept that enterprises are connected digitally and demonstrated real life examples of how JDE customers can benefit from IOT.
Applying The Internet Of Things In Real World Manufacturing Environments
Using IOT in Manufacturing, connected assets are able to be monitored remotely, and the system can make real time decisions based on matching the data collected to a set of predetermined parameters. Enterprise integration is achieved through IOT blended to Applications and Contextual Predictive Insights provide for improved product controls.
To support this development, Oracle’s Out of the Box IOT Applications include;
- Connected Worker
To demonstrate the capability, an example was provided focusing on the maintenance of a forklift. The operation and status of the forklift is monitored via the sensors attached to key parts of the machine such as; steering, propylene tank and the engine.
In addition to tracking the location of the forklift, the demonstration showed how it alerted and created maintenance orders and was also able to detect and report failures or performance issues – either to flag the need for maintenance, highlight misuse or prevent injury from component failure.
Asset monitoring via JDE allows unified, real-time accurate visibility of assets;
- Accurate up-to-the-minute asset location
- Continuous monitoring of assets with customised KPI’s
- Predictive analytics for proactive maintenance
- Automated maintenance and service workflows
At a more macro level, the same principle can be applied to factory operations management – where real time data is used by JDE along with predictive and prescriptive analytics to;
- Gain visibility of real-time manufacturing and equipment performance
- Detect and diagnose production anomalies
- Act on prescriptive and predictive analytics
- Reduce inefficiencies with real-time notifications and automated response
