Andrew Hinz will present on considerations for edge computing in manufacturing operations.
Edge computing has become increasingly popular in manufacturing due to its ability to reduce latency, increase security, and decrease bandwidth usage. However, integrating edge compute into a manufacturing environment requires careful consideration to ensure its effectiveness and efficiency. This presentation identifies several key considerations manufacturers must evaluate before implementing edge compute solutions, including system architecture, network connectivity, data privacy and security, scalability, and energy consumption. To implement edge computing effectively, manufacturers must also assess the hardware and software requirements, partnerships with third-party vendors, and training for their workforce. By taking these considerations into account, manufacturers can ensure that their edge compute solutions are cost-effective, secure, and scalable in the long term, leading to increased efficiency, productivity, and profitability.
