AD3B - Smart Connected Operations (IIoT and RFID) for Manufacturing and Remote Monitoring

Attend this session to hear two case studies from Southwest Airlines (Sabel Systems) and Crean & Associates leveraging the value of ThingWorx for Smart Connected Operations. Sabel Systems Technology Solutions and Southwest Airlines used ThingWorx to create a cloud hosted Central Monitoring System (CMS) for their Corporate Facilities team who are responsible for maintaining the equipment that is critical to airline operations. The CMS enables real time remote visibility to airport equipment performance at the component level, automated alert and escalation features that reduce downtime, a direct interface with Southwest's Computerized Maintenance Management System to create work orders, and robust reporting for benchmarking and trend analysis. Crean & Associates will present the ROI calculation for an IIoT and RFID program for all stakeholders. Their presentation will include an optimization strategy and showcase how an IIoT and RFID program will future proof the organization by ensuring its competitiveness in the industry.
