We will look […]

Industrial Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) guide with AWS IoT SiteWise

Introduction Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) is the standard for measuring manufacturing productivity. It encompasses three factors: quality, performance, and availability. Therefore, a score of 100% OEE would mean a manufacturing system is producing only good parts, as fast as possible and with no stop time; in other words, a perfectly utilized production line. OEE provides […]

Importing historical equipment data into AWS IoT SiteWise

Introduction AWS IoT SiteWise is a managed service that helps customers collect, store, organize and monitor data from their industrial equipment at scale. Customers often need to bring their historical equipment measurement data from existing systems such as data historians and time series databases into AWS IoT SiteWise for ensuring data continuity, training artificial intelligence […]

Guidance on using ISA/IEC 62443 for IIoT projects

Introduction With the increasing proliferation of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) systems and cloud services for innovation and digital transformation, government agencies and industrial customers are faced with protecting an expanding attack surface. The ISA/IEC 62443 series of standards were written before IIoT technologies were common but provide a strong basis for securing these environments. […]

Ingesting industrial media to Amazon Kinesis Video Streams using AWS IoT Greengrass V2 components

Introduction Organizations install hundreds of Internet Protocol (IP) cameras to increase security by surveilling indoor and outdoor spaces. This is a common need for manufacturing plant floors across industries such as automotive, commercial, Oil & Gas, public safety, and agri-tech. Companies connect cameras to the cloud to create a centralized view of their siloed data […]

How to replicate AWS IoT SiteWise resources across environments

Introduction As you scale your AWS IoT SiteWise applications and move them into production, you may consider adopting common CI/CD methodologies that separate development and QA environments from production environments. This separation allows you to automate the deployment of these applications through deployment pipelines. You also may have multiple business units and/or industrial sites with […]
