How to go from digitalisation to intelligent machines in manufacturing

This infographic is a visual representation of the journey explained in the Industrial IoT maturity model. Follow these steps in your journey from digitalisation to intelligent machines to successfully implement Industry 4.0 in your enterprise. An Industrial IoT platform, like IXON Cloud, can help you during each stage of your journey. 


The journey from digitalisation to intelligent machines


It starts when industrial machines and operations are controlled by software via PLCs, Sensors, Cobots and HMI screens.


Devices are connected to the internet and made accessible from outside the factory. Secure VPN access and web platforms make remote control and maintenance of machines more efficient.

Data Analyses

Machine data are collected and stored securely in the cloud. A data strategy is set out to visualize and analyse data for machine and process improvements.

Predictive Capacity

Sophisticated analytics lead to best-practice patterns, and are used to inform service and operation teams when the need for machine maintenance is near or if operations are down.


Connected services and integrated platforms result in smart capabilities like machine learning and artificial intelligence.
