Business Benefits of Digital Solutions Across Your Manufacturing Enterprise

Today’s manufacturers are laying the foundation for success in a transformed world by bringing digital technologies to areas of focus across their business. Although the outcomes sought by production, quality, maintenance, supply chain, and health and safety stakeholders vary, every domain benefits from digital technology.

Production Manager

With digital production solutions based on real-time manufacturing data, production managers can deliver high-quality products consistently and on time with increased throughput, improved delivery, and little or  no unplanned downtime or scrap.

Quality Manager

An intelligent digital solution gives quality control teams end-to-end traceability, real-time access to data that is critical to improve quality, faster root cause analysis, better first-pass yield and reduced cost of quality.

Operational Excellence Manager

Digital production solutions can automatically highlight factory bottlenecks and provide relevant 4M data to jump-start Kaizen events so operational excellence managers don’t have to collect data manually.

Manufacturing Process Manager

Manufacturing process engineers can understand the gap between designed and actual performance of new or existing equipment with digital production solutions, which provide historical data and ML-based  insights to optimize processes.

Maintenance Manager

With digital maintenance solutions, maintenance managers can enhance equipment availability and life span, optimize spares and coordinate between maintenance and operations to improve recovery rates and  minimize costs.

Supply Chain Manager

With a highly configurable solution, supply chain managers gain real-time insights to optimize and reduce risks across their partner value chain. This can drive improvements in resiliency, agility, responsiveness and  costs.

Environment, Health and Safety Manager

Health and safety capabilities detect potential danger and alert employees via video and 3D lidar analytics solutions. With our digital solution, you can improve work processes to enhance quality, performance and  safety.
