Identifying your enabling organisational capabilities
To achieve these business goals, you of course need the right capabilities within your organisation. This includes your assets, people, processes, and data.
For organisations working in a manufacturing or other industry setting, assets are particularly important. Their capacity, performance, and throughput have a huge impact on operations.
At manufacturing companies, key assets are generally things like equipment, parts, production lines, and the plant buildings themselves. And it’s vital to continually plan, optimise, and control these assets to minimise costs while maximising availability and performance.
To embrace the full possibilities digital industry (including the benefits of Industry 4.0), digitalising asset management and performance activities is essential. This involves turning sensor-based machine data into real-time actionable intelligence, and gives valuable insights to enable better decision-making and increased productivity and profitability.
However, this form of digitalisation requires vital input and coordination from three other aspects of your organisation: people, processes, and data. These elements will determine the success or failure of your transformation efforts.
The way you manage your people will be a major factor in the success of your digital transformation efforts.
The talent within your organisation will provide the competencies, skills, and abilities needed to transform, implement, and operate your smart manufacturing and digital industry-related systems. And that means these skills have to be updated at the same pace as your technology.
To ensure this is the case, it’s important to work with your employees to determine strategies that develop digital competencies in line with transformation strategies. Learn more.
The goal of digitalising your processes is to achieve a complete integration between planning, scheduling, quality management, cost control, material movement, and shop floor operations.
Transforming these processes requires a high level of insight into how each one works, so you can highlight bottlenecks and weaknesses in workflows, identify opportunities for cost reductions, and set clear goals for digital improvements.
High-quality data is the foundation of any digital transformation initiative.
Therefore, every digital transformation project should be based on collecting relevant data, and knowing how to turn that into meaningful information to support decision making and across your wider organisation.
