All of the equipment that facilities managers, building operators and factory operators buy and install in their establishments generate data. The advancement of Building Management Solutions (BMS) has ensured that vital performance and operational data is generated and then pushed to a platform where the equipment can be monitored and managed.
But what about the equipment manufacturers?
The data from the equipment that they’ve built and sent into the field is shared with the equipment owner, but remains a mystery to the company that built it. And that’s a problem. There is a lot of knowledge and insights that can be gathered – and many benefits that can be generated – by sharing equipment data with the original manufacturer.
Thankfully, the emergence of new “Cloud with a Purpose” solutions are making this important connection – bringing essential equipment data back to the OEMs.
On this site, we’ll be looking at the exciting news, trends and advancements being made in the manufacturing and cloud-enabling of equipment. We’ll be looking at case studies and use cases that detail the benefits that cloud-enabled equipment can deliver, and we’ll be speaking directly to industry leaders and technology companies that are driving this industrial revolution forward.
We encourage you to check back every week for new, exciting content. And we also encourage you to reach out to us. We want Modern Equipment Manufacturer to be a community of facilities managers, OEMs, equipment operators and facility owners that are working together to advance the industry and their interests. But we can only make that happen if we interact and engage each other.
