The Connected OT/IT Supply Chain
There has been a lot of discussion around the convergence of OT and IT plus the influence regarding this in recent years by the iiOT (Industrial Internet of Things). This convergence has given companies more timely information to better run their business and implement their business strategies. For these integrated systems, in what we call the Connected OT/IT Supply Chain to perform optimally, it is important for OT and IT practitioners to understand each other’s area of expertise to work together effectively. Click on Connected OT/IT Supply Chain for further information.
Why is it important for our experts to understand both OT (Operations Technology) and IT (Information Technology)? Let’s look at the implementation of MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems). MES involves the integration of plant floor systems like PLC’s (Programmable Logic Controllers) and DCS (Distributed Control Systems) on one side and ERP on the other side. PLC’s and DCS are considered Operations Technology while ERP falls under Information Technology. The design of well architected MES systems require intimate knowledge of business processes underlying control systems and ERP to ensure sustainability and adaption to future business needs. A good deal of our experience has been with MES and MES has been successful when there is a well-integrated project team including both operations and IT technology resources. Ideally the leader of the team comes to the project with both OT and IT experience.
Another example requiring knowledge of both worlds is the area of Cyber Security. Implementing Cyber Security for OT differs significantly from IT, owing to the differences in communication, data management, and infrastructure technologies that underlie each.
Global OT/IT Quality Services has experience in both OT and IT, along with insuring quality and compliance within these systems with regards to industry regulations and data integrity. Global OT/IT Quality Services can be an effective partner in bridging the gap that is often present between OT and IT. We can help improve a company’s supply chain by improving the integration and performance of systems in what we call the Connected OT/IT Supply Chain.
