Grantek’s Sam Russem Answers “How Can Ignition Help With The Digital Thread?” on Inductive Automation’s Blog

October 14, 2021

Inductive Automation’s Blog features a guest post which discusses Digital Thread and the connection to Inductive Automation’s Ignition platform. Digital Thread is an operational concept that describes how a profile of data is defined, created, populated, and modified throughout the product lifecycle. Ignition is server software that acts as the hub for everything on your plant floor for total system integration. No matter what brand, model, or platform, it talks to your plant-floor equipment just as naturally as it talks to SQL databases, seamlessly bridging the gap between production and IT. This article, titled: “How Can Ignition Help With The Digital Thread?”, was written by Sam Russem, Senior Director of Smart Manufacturing Solutions at Grantek.

“As a cross-platform solution, Ignition is also very versatile as the needs of the plant floor change. This versatility extends beyond just local applications; Ignition is predicated on adaptability and is built upon trusted open technologies. Collectively, the modular architecture of Ignition and the adaptability of the product make it a great tool to set up a manufacturing facility for success with Digital Thread.”
