"Overcome Top 5 Operational Challenges for Managers of Large, Distributed Facilities"

Improve Visibility, Agility, and Responsiveness with Wireless Sensors

As a manager of a large industrial, corporate, or hospitality facility, you have a lot to worry about.  At a high level, your job is to ensure the safe and efficient operation of the facility, which requires teams of people, vendors, and contractors managing millions of dollars of equipment and services to make things run smoothly.  Put simply, you need to:

  • Keep the power, HVAC, plumbing, internet, and electrical systems working to provide a safe and comfortable environment for customers and employees
  • Look for ways to optimize these systems to drive better performance at lower costs
  • Adjust to changing business needs (adding headcount, increasing capacity, shifting structure or organizations, etc)
  • Respond to crises (equipment failure, weather events, power outages, etc) quickly to maintain business continuity and keep the facility safe
  • Create a positive experience for customers and employees


What makes managing these core responsibilities even more challenging is a collection of fundamental operational “hurdles” that you must overcome.  We’ve identified these 5 operational challenges as ones that add the most complexity, cost, and hazard to your ability to do your job:


  • Large physical area (large facility, multiple buildings, multiple sites)
  • Heterogeneous environment (equipment, software)
  • Infrastructure (power, networking, wiring, etc) that is expensive or impossible to modify
  • Limited Access to controlled, confined, or hazardous areas
  • Lack of visibility into changing conditions (leaks, power surges, equipment failures, etc)


Wireless sensor technology and the industrial internet of things (IoT) trend in businesses is now making these operational challenges more manageable.  In this paper, we will explore these challenges in more detail and review how low-cost, distributed wireless sensors can help you better manage and optimize your facility’s operations.
