Published On February 16, 2022     |     5 Min Read

IoT and Industry 4.0 NextGen Maintenance

Day by day, the world is becoming more modernized and equipped with efficient technology. One such technological advancement is IoT (Internet of Things). IoT is the path that leads towards the industry 4.0 revolution. It aims majorly on developing connectivity, enhancing automation and connecting to physical manufacturing and operations of an organization. 

What is Industry 4.0

The introduction of computers in Industry 3.0 was disruptive due to the introduction of a completely new technology. Computers are connected and communicate with one another now and in the future as Industry 4.0 takes shape, allowing them to make choices without the need for human intervention. Industry 4.0 and the smart factory are made possible by a combination of cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things (IoT), and the Internet of Systems. Our factories will become more efficient and productive as a consequence of the support of smart machines that continue to get smarter as they gain access to more data. In the end, the true strength of Industry comes from the network of these machines that are digitally connected to one another and create and share information.

IoT as a path towards Industry 4.0 has become  a necessity for a company. A Company gets innumerable benefits while adopting IoT and Industry 4.0 in its next-gen maintenance management.
Various types of sensors are utilized during implementation based on the need, helping the maintenance team to take care of situations proactively and smartly.

IoT sensors in Maintenance

The sensors interact with CMMS solutions like DreamzCMMS wirelessly. The maintenance team can monitor the performance of various equipment through IoT device alerts. In DreamzCMMS, notifications are set up to alert the team whenever the sensor data communicates any potential threats. This automatically creates maintenance requests (Work Orders) which allows the team to respond immediately.

Timely alerts for any threats like malfunctioning of any assets are easily achieved through respective sensors. With the usage of appropriate sensors along with DreamzCMMS, costly damages and threats can be avoided several times.

DreamzCMMS by leveraging its sensor solution, helps the maintenance team to plan better for routine checks avoiding unplanned and expensive downtime.

Benefits of IoT and Industry 4.0


The first advantage this revolutionary technique offers is cutting down the costs involved in equipment downtime. It provides a smarter way of management with the help of real time data. It optimizes costs of maintenance operations and finding the combination for maximum production at minimum cost.

Enhances Quality and Efficiency

This smart way of reforming a company will provide immediate solutions towards all issues. These solutions will be smart and specific for the growth of the company. IoT in CMMS software pushes industries towards automation. It reduces manual intervention. Sensors send the data, if it goes beyond the threshold limit and CMMS starts the maintenance operations automatically. It enhances the quality as well as the efficiency of the technicians.  

Improves Communications

Most of the time, it becomes difficult for people within an organization to be alert for any incidents to occur . However, by implementing this technology organizations can eliminate unplanned downtimes. In fact, with the automation in CMMS solutions like in DreamzCMMS, you can create rules and workflows. Once an alert receives, it automatically creates a work order and notify the technicians. Thus it creates a better communication channel among various departments and employees. It will make prediction and risk modeling easier and faster among various departments. This will enable bridging the communication gap,boosting efficiency and productivity. 

A quick glance of some more advantages

  • Enhances equipment performance
  • Improves safety
  • Improves production efficiency
  • Enhanced machine and man collaboration
  • Reduction in asset failure and asset downtime
  • Improved supply chain planning
  • Increased ROI of all assets by extending asset life cycle

The Bottom line

Nevertheless, one must also consider the barriers between revolutionizing one company through IoT and Industry 4.0. With DreamzCMMS, you can be rest assured to experience the next-gen digitization through effective use of IoT. Choosing DreamzCMMS will help in adopting and creating smart solutions. This will ensure overall improvement of performance through analytical structures and efficiency of information.
