Top 5 Plant Engineering articles, December 4-10Plant Engineering’s top 5 most read articles from December 4-10 covered 3D robotic welding, IIoT, condition monitoring, making assets part of the supply chain, and changes to NFPA 70E. Link to each article below.

1. 3-D robotic welding simulation benefits

Cover Story: Teaching robots how to weld using 3-D simulation is beneficial because welding is a complex, precise process that cannot be explained or taught easily to humans.

2. Connect the physical with the digital

Leaders say, don’t let culture impede technology progress with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

3. IIoT and condition monitoring turn data into decisions

Manufacturers can leverage IIoT data in nearly all stages of the manufacturing process, including monitoring product quality and performance.

4. Make productive assets part of the supply chain

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) responds to increasing demands placed on goods makers as the e-commerce landscape evolves.

5. NFPA 70E: What’s in the 2018 edition?: Your questions answered

Presenter Lanny Floyd answers questions about changes to NFPA 70E that were not addressed during the live webcast.

This list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on www.plantengineering.com, December 4-10, for articles published within the last two months.
