Why IoT Matters
A massive network of disruptive smart products will require learning new skills and adapting to changing industries, but the payoff will be great for engineers, businesses and consumers. As a mechanical engineer, you will most immediately gain from closed loop design, while benefits such as increased consumer value, predictive maintenance, and new service lines ultimately involve a bigger picture of IoT for business operations.
Closed Loop Design
Engineers can acquire a more complete picture of how products perform in the real world and apply these insights to improve future designs.
Increased Consumer Value
Consumers have a better experience with products that can communicate valuable information with them. Smart products have a greater capacity to cater to the needs of users, adding convenience and flexibility with improved functions.
Data about ambient conditions and product performance helps to prevent unplanned downtime as maintenance can be executed before failures occur. This increases customer satisfaction and machine uptime.
New Service Lines
Businesses can obtain new revenue with IoT by offering maintenance programs, remote monitoring services, and software updates that make improvements with product fixes and new features.
