Industrial Manufacturing

Driving organizations from product to solutions; creating profit centers from most cost centers; enabling B2B environment to execute B2C2B closed-loop performance management

Industry 4.0 technologies like IoT, cloud computing, and Big Data are transforming the overall landscape of the manufacturing industry. This digital transformation allows for the integration of previously disparate systems and processes through interconnected computer systems across the value and supply chain. This integration creates significant potential for increased efficiency and ultimately profit through real-time visibility and control over the inventory. IoT can significantly improve operations, increase efficiency, reduce costs, and provide valuable real-time visibility across the supply chain.

In order to implement these revolutionary technologies and paradigms, organizations need to measure, assess, and consequently act on the company’s overall readiness for Industry 4.0. Effective implementation of Industry 4.0 principles requires advanced coordination and dissolution of data silos through greater visibility across different parts of the organization. Greater clarity and transparency between internal teams allows for the strategic use of large data sets to optimize the supply chain, understand the customer, and deliver.
