Digital Transformation in Manufacturing from a Network Visualization Viewpoint
A smart, connected enterprise can embrace the digital transformation in the coming Internet of Things (IoT) world. Manufacturers must adopt technologies that transform operating models and allow for digital connections of processes, events, actions, internal workers and external partners. This transformation will allow manufacturers greater agility and flexibility for regional or global production.
It appears manufacturing executives in a study in a McKinsey report understand the importance of the digital transformation:
- 80% said digital operations are a critical driver of every organization’s manufacturing competitiveness
- 61% said digital is a senior leadership priority
- 37% said their organization has a strategy for how digital manufacturing will enable competition
- 13% said their organization has digital manufacturing capability today
Knowing how important going digital is to the C-suite, it only makes sense to use battle tested, but effective, tools.
IT data analytics and monitoring products are best of breed. Having access to the OT space means they can add an extreme amount of value to the business because they can now pull their data into the IT platforms and get real-time visibility, metrics, data analytics, real-time reporting, real-time alerting, and thresholding.
In a move to enhance productivity and to remain more competitive in an emerging global landscape, companies need to apply smarter and more connected technology. While that can add complexity to solutions, nothing – not even the plant floor — can be an island anymore.
