New digital technology now makes it feasible to integrate process control and SIF within a common automation infrastructure. While this can provide productivity and asset management benefits, if not done correctly, it can also compromise the safety and security of an industrial operation. Cybersecurity and sabotage vulnerability further accentuate the need for securing the safety instrumented system (SIS). Certainly, a common platform approach using similar hardware and software dedicated for control and safety functions, respectively, can provide the potential for cost savings. However, it is widely acknowledged that utilizing separate, independent, and diverse hardware/software for safety and control is the optimal way to protect against potentially catastrophic common cause and systematic design and application errors. Different vendors offer varied degrees of integration and solutions. The question is: how to provide an integrated control and safety solution with advanced functionality and productivity without compromising safety and security? And, where do users draw the line? A third-party (e.g., TÜV) certification of the hardware/software systems to IEC 61508 specifications carries significant advantages, but should this be the only criterion? How does a third-party certificate extend to the plant’s overall assignment of risk reduction credits for all independent protection layers (IPL)? Control system embedded safety logic solvers may actually increase the SIL requirements of the SIF if no credit is allowed for the distributed control system (DCS) as an IPL.

After buzzing Industry 4.0 all over the media by all OT and IT experts, today, a few key concepts seem to unveil the potential that the industry believes is behind Industry 4.0. These include: Smart Machines, Smart Factory, cyber physical systems, Everything-as-a-Service and a few technologies like OPC UA, cloud and data analytics. Clearly, they are the innovation drivers and must-haves for every vendor of automation products that want to be recognized as leaders or challengers. Sooner or later they will become standards and used by followers and niche players, but the key question for the market of automation suppliers is not who is first in developing and providing all the nice concepts and technologies, but who is creating and combining them in the right way so that they can be turned into new revenue streams. We keep in mind that competitive advantages can be achieved through increasing operational efficiency, but the better way is through strategic uniqueness. Companies which ar

Whether you know it as Industry 4.0, the 4th Industrial Revolution, or Smart Industry, Manufacturing is going through a deep transformation, with changes that are centered around digitalization. While most industries are already on this digitalization path, the disruption is more visible and pronounced in manufacturing because it is expanding virtual data and processes into environments that have been fundamentally about physical products. This transformation has already started, and its impact is expected to be massive. Technical, economic, and social changes are expected across the whole manufacturing ecosystem, with jobs shifting from offshoring back to nearshoring. Strong technology elements driving this digital revolution include 3D printing, robotizing and automation, smart factory with IoT and machine learning, and supply chain digitization. Their impact is profound.

Even with the rise of digital payments, cash is still a popular form of payment. According to the Federal Reserve, consumers use cash to pay for nearly one-third of all retail transactions. For many retailers, a completely "cashless society" is nowhere in sight. Cash management remains one of the most important aspects of managing a retail operation, particularly at quick service restaurants (QSRs) and convenience stores, where transactions are smaller and cash is a preferred method of payment. This white paper, Boost Profitability by Automating Cash, sponsored by Fiserv and Fast Casual, details the steps to manage cash properly and boost profit for your business. Uncover the top reasons and flexible options to automate your cash management. • Time savings • Theft deterrence • Higher accuracy • Better customer service • Real-time data

Expanding analytic capabilities are critical to digitizing the business, optimizing costs, accelerating innovation, and surviving digital disruption Historically, manufacturers were almost solely focused on reducing costs by applying automation and analytics to engineering, R&D, manufacturing operations, and quality organizations. Even though the strategies used within these areas are still needed, they are not sufficient to ensure business survival and continuity in the age of Industry 4.0 and the IoT. Today, it is paramount that smart manufacturers broaden their scope because disruptive innovations in data acquisition, storage, and analytics technology have enabled an entirely new degree of automation and virtualization, promising a complete 360-degree high-fidelity virtual data-driven integrated views of all operations—from suppliers and supply chains, through equipment, processes, and manufacturing practices, to final product testing and customer satisfaction.

Competition is growing fierce for restaurants — and not all of it comes from other local dining establishments. With grocery stores and meal kit services offering additional convenient and affordable dining options for customers to choose from, and with many restaurants turning to faster and smarter automation methods to power their operations, now is the time for your restaurant to step up its game. Ultimately, what your restaurant needs to do is offer a complete experience for your guests. The only way to effectively do this is to understand the whole diner journey and how the decisions you make along the way affect it.

Customers today are far more concerned about the contents and origin of a product than ever before. in such a scenario, granting them easy access to product information, via digital initiatives such as SmartLabel™, goes a long way in strengthening customer trust in a brand. But it also means expending several man-hours of effort processing unstructured data, with the possibility of human error. Intelligent automation can help save effort and time, with virtually error-free results. A consumer products conglomerate wanted a smart solution to implement SmartLabel™ compliance. See how Infosys helped and the five key takeaways from the project.
