While you might not think that connected devices and ubiquitously-available information are necessary for manufacturing, taking advantage of these devices and technologies can help. If you change your manufacturing culture so it focuses on data, you can thrive in this environment. However, it can be hard to make this transition, so here are some ways to change your culture so it takes advantage of data. First, you should identify your new assets, and then analyze the big data. Follow these steps to help take advantage of the data.
- With the advent of new technology and automated systems we need to train our human employees to be able to operate this technology so we don’t have slow downs in the process.
- Identify the company assets and make sure you have a full proof plan for stopping any data bottlenecks.
- Digital data is doubling every two years so it’s super important that we are able to back up our data and make sure our data is handled efficiently.
“In a data-driven manufacturing culture, the firm leverages the breadth of data available from new technologies such as Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), automation, artificial intelligence or other digitization tools.”
