Smarter Planet™ initiatives are playing a major role in how technology is shaping our interactions with the world around us. Common to many of these smarter planet initiatives is the observation and processing of sensor data to extract insights from the physical world. Part 4 in this series discusses a hypothetical manufacturing line that leverages real time asset location tracking data to improve the efficiency of the system. You will see how this sensor data can be incorporated into the business processes governing the work-in-process execution flow, and also how monitoring capabilities can be utilized to show operational dashboards. You will see how a connected process flow system can become more intelligent and obtain added value by improving the process flow.
