Optimizing processes as a strategy
Manufacturing companies have the challenge of increasing productivity while producing individualized products with high quality. Therefore, the development of the necessary technology and information is critical, in an environment that is constantly changing and demanding variable, by customers.
Processes are the only way to make a value offer come true, it is not enough to identify an opportunity, it must be realized. In this way, it is critical to have technology and information to have efficient and flexible processes. Thus, how competitive costs are allowed, diversified offers and with agile responses to customer needs.
With Industry 4.0, or the 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, multivariate optimization or forecasting decisions.
Financing this type of transformation project is relatively easy, given its benefits, especially taking advantage of the benefits of cloud computing. Under our investment banking service we ensure your financial closure.
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 analysis on distributed assets creates new challenges for technology and information. The use of mobility, Big Data, data analytics and digitization of processes is essential. The management of Android devices and computing devices (computers, or Cloud services) and an adequate communication system(router, wifi, fiber optics) leverages the agility of all processes.
Industrial IoTdeployments 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.
Automates and standardizes processes, products and/or services generated by the company.
It makes work more efficient in a transparent way.
Increases the speed of problem response and solutions and results delivery.
Improves customer integration and increases sales.
Control all processes and information via cloud, mobile and social.
He has the ability to reinvent the business.
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.
Key processes of a company with appropriate technology and information
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.
