Manufacturing Business Challenges

  • Every department has their own data. This way decisions on top level are sometimes made with suboptimal data. Therefore, one single source of truth is crucial
  • To cut costs and find bottlenecks, the operation costs need to be more acurate
  • Unexpected downtimes and an overload of inventory cost a lot of money

 

Critical Success factor

  • Translation between upper administrative level and automation layer as key to ensure one single source of truth
  • Availability of collaborative, integrated real-time planning and scheduling across all internal departments and suppliers
  • Use of multi-enterprise, “control tower” planning with suppliers and distributors
  • Integration with disparate systems
