Manufacturing IoT

Smart Factory


What is IIoT or Industrial Internet of Things?

IIoT or Industrial Internet of Things is the connection of machines, people and analytical system data together in order to obtain good and accurate information, leading to can track, store, exchange, and display useful insights. Making the production process throughout the supply chain connected in the digital world more completely Upgrade to a smart factory Increase efficiency and reduce costs production

Case Study

IoT คือ

While ASEAN comes under the spotlight as an alternative base of global business instead of China, the visualization of summary result or operational status of manufacturing equipment and IoT transformation in traceability, fool-proofing become imperative. Moreover, one of the goal to achieve “Thailand 4.0” which is raised as a 20-year long-term vision in Thailand is to improve productivity by digital technology.

In Japan, there is increasing movement to proceed with IoT implementation in order to get “IATF 16949 (International standards for quality management system focused on the automotive industry)” and enhance the competitiveness, it is said that such tendency is also certainly coming along in Thailand and ASEAN.

Is it about time to start thinking manufacturing IoT in Thailand?

What to know first before implementing manufacturing IoT


Actual Result Collection

Traceability (Production trace)

It needs to create the system to track a history of the product like when, where, how the product was manufactured by what material, and to find the cause rapidly and accurately when a product recall occurred due to any quality problem.



Understand the situation in real time (Monitoring)

It will not only be a benefit to a manager, but it also enhance the awareness of on-site operators about production plan/result by processing the real-time production status and result into an easy-to-understand format to display.

Understand Operation Result

It can calculate more accurate manufacturing cost to improve utilization rate and production rate by correctly understanding and analyzing the operation result of device. Moreover, it also can support lean manufacturing plan and special grade item by knowing the operational status of multiple locations.

Pick up alert information from the device, then early detect and solve problem by automatically transferring to next process, communicating to on-site operators/manager in abnormal case.

Early detection, solution and andon for malfunction (alert display)


Smart Factory

Big data analysis and data cleansing

Analyze a low-quality manufacturing line, a low-performance work process based on the collected big data, and lead to quality improvement and overall process improvement. Moreover, in the collected data, it is more likely to be mixed between error and duplicated data. Therefore, it is necessary to revise such unwanted data to be more accurate information by “data cleansing (data maintenance)”.

Manufacturing AI (Work automation/Automatic control)
Utilize AI (Artificial Intelligence) from the process of “Collect information from the device” to “Provide the device with information”. We are doing the comprehensive optimization from both factory and management aspect as a leading factory which achieved “Industry 4.0”.


What to know first before implementing manufacturing IoT

สิ่งที่ควรทราบก่อนการติดตั้ง IoT ด้านการผลิต

What to know first before implementing manufacturing IoT

In case of the person in charge for factory

  • I don’t know where can I call out for support, and where to begin.

  • I don’t know at all about IT. Can the equipment itself send the data?

  • Don’t you think the investment amount will increase again due to FA?
    In case of the person in charge for IT department

  • I have no idea about the details of equipments.

  • Where we should get the data from? If using barcode, I know but…

  • It needs to cooperate with other departments, but production is number 1.


Companies Appearing in Manufacturing IoT Implementation and Roles


Key Elements of a Manufacturing IoT Implementation



Software : CSI

Machine maker

Equipment maker

Equipment installation


Provide and install software system as a tool after visualize and analyzing manufacturing data. Support the customer by using a commercial off-the-shelf package, framework, scratch development to suit the customer’s requirements and solution for implementation.

Provide stationary sensor/sequencer to use in the new/existing line.
Also support a survey if it can get data from the using equipment or not, in a consultant position.

Support the customer in case it needs any operational support from maker when getting data from the using equipment in the new/existing line.

Install manufacturing equipment (including control panel) based on the on-site survey or information from a manufacturing equipment maker. Also perform the construction of panel board and electrical wiring depending on the situation.

Besides the installation of server devices and other devices such as PC in line, support installation by considering security, access point and LAN wiring in the factory.


Flow until Start of Manufacturing IoT Implementation Project








Begin by hearing the customer’s requirements and introduce the achievement results and examples according to the customer’s needs.

On-site checking
(several times)

Make an investigation together with the equipment related maker about network environment, operational status of device and equipment being used by the customer. Then proceed with the proposal of feasible solution after strongly checking the customer’s current situation.

Explanation of
draft proposal

Submit and explain a draft proposal with an easy-to-understand image after implementation based on the customer’s needs and situation. “Visualize” the solution contents and how to proceed the project, then share the final vision with the concerned persons after having many discussions.

Internal adjustment
by customer

The customer internally set up a project team for implementation and clarify roles and responsibilities.

(We can support by giving some advice about what to do first in your company, so please feel free to contact us.)

Project start

Finally IoT implementation project starts after the contract has been signed.

Head toward the goal point based on the customer’s requirements one by one under the steady operation and management.
