How you apply technology can be as important as the technology you integrate into your manufacturing environment.

Smart Manufacturing

Smart manufacturing is the foundation of a connected enterprise where devices and processes can be continually monitored and optimized.  These systems represent the integration of key productivity factors of automation, operations information, and advanced analytics creating systems that interact with one another.

We evaluate all levels of your technology infrastructure and make best practice recommendations that will prepare your company for future business requirements.  From assessment to implementation, we can create a technology strategy and support you throughout your entire smart manufacturing journey.

Looking at business processes, networks and plant floor operations as independent silos is no longer efficient.

Bridge the Information Technology (IT) & Operations Technology (OT) Gap

Conventional manufacturing approaches are no longer helping companies achieve their desired business goals and objectives.

Although Operational Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT) Managers have individual roles and responsibilities, many of them share common business concerns and challenges.

  1. Improved product traceability
  2. Access to real-time information
  3. Increased visibility
  4. Adapting to a recent merger or acquisition
  5. Shrinking knowledge base
  6. Reduced time to market
  7. Consolidation of data
  8. Integration of shop floor and top floor data

Most executives understand what’s required to achieve automation and network improvements to implement smart manufacturing into their operations.  However, they continually face the challenge of getting IT and Engineering to work together to accomplish common business goals and objectives.
