Want to ‘go digital’ in manufacturing but don’t know where to start? Industry 4.0? Digital twins? AI?
Industrial digitalisation is here to stay, and it’s not too late to join in!
Many manufacturers are in the early stages of digital transformation, assessing ‘digital readiness’ i.e. the ability to embrace digital technologies to meet organisational, operational, social and financial objectives. Many manufacturers have an ad hoc collection of automation projects and need to work out the ‘next step’: how to take the company to the next level of Industrial IoT.
Production processes are increasingly impacted by digitalisation, demographic changes, scarcity of resources and imbalances in world economies.
Digital technologies have become indispensable in domestic life, and in industry, digital manufacturing opens up huge opportunities across the supply chain. Products, processes and material flow can be optimised in real-time based on current data, allowing manufacturers to respond quickly and flexibly to new business models, changing customer demands and fluctuating market conditions.
But, where to start?
- Understand your workforce. Knowledge is power, and data is knowledge: the knowledge and expertise of your workforce are key to the success of any digital manufacturing project. Engaging staff with the company’s digital plan will help adoption and integration, as well as providing vital feedback.
- Understand your workflows. Knowing what data you need, where from, and where it needs to go.
- Engage with a trusted technology provider. It’s not all about the latest, most high-tech machine, but about what technology and services will best meet the needs of the business.
