4.2.11 The IoE in manufacturing

Before IoE, manufacturers had little contact with customers and it was time-consuming to collect customer feedback on products. IT and OT operations were also separate.

With IoE, products and services can include embedded sensors that provide manufacturers with constant data and feedback. IT and OT operations are converged (Figure 4). Press each button to the left to reveal a different section of the IoE manufacturing infrastructure.
