I’ve written before about how server appliances that are used in the industrial automation and manufacturing industries can improve productivity. Today, I have a real-life illustration of just how powerfully effective these systems can be.
Let me explain this with a real-time scenario based on the 800xA system from ABB, a collaboration platform that provides great overview of a plant’s operation. This is achieved by enabling collaboration between enterprise systems, plant systems, desktop applications and plant equipment. The platform improves operations, engineering, control and maintenance, enabling enterprises to do real-time decision making and improve energy efficiency, asset utilization and operational effectiveness.
