From the Back Page
This open access book is a practitioner`s guide to smart, connected products and solutions based on AI, IoT, and Digital Twins. As a hands-on playbook, it combines the business and technical execution perspectives to help utilize the full potential of AIoT and Digital Twins. The playbook provides a comprehensive and actionable framework, helping to address the challenges of creating sustainable and scalable, AIoT-enabled business models, managing co-creation and sourcing, setting up the AIoT organization, and handling the legal aspects of AIoT. The technical execution perspective explains how to combine data science and AI engineering with software development for cloud and edge, as well as physical product development or retrofit integration of existing equipment. A pragmatic, agile approach is introduced, which takes common agile inhibitors in AIoT projects into consideration. A holistic AIoT DevOps approach is described, which combines key elements of DevOps for cloud, edge and AI. Enterprise readiness is ensured by looking at trust and security as well as reliability and resilience for AIoT. A large number of real-world examples and case studies help ensure practical relevance.
The Digital Playbook is addressing product companies, OEMs, manufacturers and equipment operators. Many product companies and OEMs are today combining physical products with digital features and services. Manufacturers are increasingly relying on digital solutions to optimize production and logistics. Asset and equipment operators are utilizing smart, connected solutions to improve the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
