Digitizing industrial processes

Optimizing processes as a strategy

Manufacturing companies are challenged to increase productivity while producing individualized products with high quality, in an ever-changing environment and variable customer demand.

Processes are the only way to make a value offer a reality, it is not enough to identify an opportunity that needs to materialize. That is why it is critical today to have efficient and flexible processes that allow us to offer competitive costs, diversified offers and with agile responses to customer needs.

Industry 4.0, or Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). it’s about industrial transformation using a new digital technology to automate processes. Which can range from automating repetitive and monotonous tasks, to making complex and multivariate decisions.

Integrating IT & OT technologies

Advances in computing, communications and data analysis are laying the groundwork for digitizing industrial operations in a transformative way. However, because most companies going through the digital journey can attest, implementing and managing analytics on distributed assets creates new challenges.

 

Industrial IoT deployments are complex and involve multiple hardware protocols, software, networking, cloud applications, and vendors that require many touchpoints in an organization. Two key elements: IT and OT (Information Technology and Operations Technology) must align and work together with business units. In addition, more hardware and more analysis packages tend to complicate the equation with closed systems that do not communicate with each other.

In today’s connected world, manufacturers are embracing automation and the Internet of Things (IoT) or the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to gain a competitive advantage. The fusion of the cyber and physical worlds means greater efficiency.

The six main benefits of digitization are:
  1. Automates and standardizes processes, products and/or services generated by the company.
  2. It makes work more efficient in a transparent way.
  3. Increases the speed of problem response and solutions and results delivery.
  4. Improves customer integration and increases sales.
  5. Control all processes and information via cloud, mobile and social.
  6. He has the ability to reinvent the business.

Operational Productivity

Contribute to reducing all forms of waste that can be observed in processes by increasing the continuous flow from the time the customer issues the order until the last weight of the last invoice is collected: overproduction, inventories, expect, over-processes, rework, movements, transports, design errors, waste of people’s talent, mainly.

Overproduction

Inadequate production forecasts. or order failures

Transport

They don’t generate value, every time you move something, this only generates cost.

Inventories

It generates misuse of spaces, equipment, facilities, energy, financial resources, IT resources.

Expect

Due to production process failures or delays in supplies

Non-quality costs

faults in design, machines or people

Untapped initiative and creativity.

It is unacceptable to lose the ideas of responsible

Key processes of a company

Every company, independent of its activity will always have four (4) groups of key processes, which must be automated to be as efficient and competitive as possible.
