Jason Spera, CEO and co-founder of Aegis Software, a global provider of Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) and makers of FactoryLogix, recently authored an article for Manufacturing Outlook magazine. According to Spera, it is critical that today’s manufacturers approach Industry 4.0 as a journey to reap the full benefits of the Connected Factory. Read the full article here.
Spera shared, “Valuable tools, next-generation optimization systems, sensor devices, or manufacturing applications alone will not instantaneously allow manufacturers to achieve Industry 4.0 benefits. Industry 4.0 must be embraced as a long-term, strategic mindset of digital transformation that dynamically alters manufacturers’ entire operational perspective.”
For manufacturers to overcome the obstacles of achieving digital transformation, appropriate routes to full IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) optimization are necessary; combined with fast track success using MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems) the Industry 4.0 journey begins.
Automatically controlling material flow to eliminate downtime and operate at the lowest level of inventory possible is the promise of Industry 4.0. The ultimate goal is to transform manufacturing into an environment that is adaptive and customer-centric, capable of generating new business models and revenue sources.
MES empowers operators to leverage specialized manufacturing insight without taking excessive time for cross-training, quickly establishing a high level of team-wide flexibility. When surveyed, more than 90% of leading manufacturers said that cross-trained operators were instrumental in achieving flexibility.
