In the industrial sector, an IoT platform connects all assets and integrates all Operational Technology (OT), Information Technology (IT) and employee data from an industrial plant into a single system, so that key events in a process that require an automatic response from the system can be defined, and the system's responses to those events can be configured in the rules engine.
The use of a rules engine (together with the IoT platform) allows both historical and real-time data to be analysed for proper decision making, facilitating management and establishing priorities that optimise the work of teams and the efficiency of resources.
What actions can be configured with a rules configurator of IoT data?
The actions that can be configured with an IoT rules configurator respond to the typology of the assets that have been previously integrated into the IoT platform:
4Action, the IoT rules engine and platform from Zerintia Technologies
4Action is the rules configurator of IoT data and IoT orchestration platform by Zerintia Technologies that integrates data generated in the industrial plant from different sources, Operational Technologies (OT), Information Technologies (IT) and employees, for real-time event detection.
Based on this data and the application of configurable rules, these trigger actions in response to these input events, involving employees, machinery and information systems.
Some of the most common use cases where the use of a rules engine and an IoT platform yields the best results are:
