Steel and Industrial IoT (IIoT): Tackle Your Biggest Challenges
The challenges facing today’s steel manufacturers are complex and varied. Steel producers can use Industrial IoT (IIoT) tools to adapt to changing global, environmental, and domestic conditions—both today and in the future.
Globalization struggles, ranging from the COVID-19 pandemic to the Ever Given cargo ship blocking the Suez Canal, indicate how access to suppliers and customers can be impacted without forewarning. Shifting availability of raw materials means that mills must be capable of using either iron ore or iron and steel scrap at any time—possibly with little notice—to continue production at the same pace. Changing circumstances in other industries (such as automotive, aerospace, and construction) can also dramatically impact the demand for steel products.
