10 Ways Manufacturers Can Recoup The Costs Of Digitalization Efforts

Posted by Harriet Schneider on Sep 11, 2018 8:00:00 AM

 

With digitalization, manufacturers can achieve ROI in two ways: By reducing costs or by increasing revenue. According to, “Manufacturing's next big act: Building an industrial digital ecosystem,” nearly two-thirds of manufacturers expect digital manufacturing technologies, such as increased use of sensors, to help reduce overhead by at least 11%. A very optimistic 23% even hope to see cost savings of more than 30%. Most are basing their projections on the efficiencies gained from automation. In addition, more than half expect to see revenues gains of at least 11% (with 18% expecting revenues to rise more than 30%) over the next 5 years.

Industry 4.0: Obstacles And Opportunities

Posted by Harriet Schneider on Sep 4, 2018 4:17:51 PM

 

By Nick Castellina, Infor industry & solution strategy director

Digital manufacturing. Industry 4.0. You’re probably familiar with these terms, and maybe you’ve even successfully piloted these concepts. But how do you roll out such an initiative more broadly, beyond a specific use case, to ensure you are deploying operational intelligence to your entire operation and across factories, and gaining the promised productivity increases?

Many companies start with a predictive maintenance pilot, according to Capgemini’s podcast: “Emerging Trends in Digital Manufacturing with Pascal Brosset.” Improving the reliability of critical assets has an obvious payback, uses proven analytics, and is overseen by a limited, self-contained team: maintenance. Further, more and more equipment manufacturers provide maintenance services or applications along with the asset itself, which further accelerates the maturity and popularity of this use case.

Predicting The Future Of Digitalization

Posted by Harriet Schneider on Aug 30, 2018 8:00:00 AM

 

Manufacturers in all segments, from food and beverage to industrial machinery and equipment, know that digitalization is coming and they need to adapt or risk obsolescence. They all want to find an easy way to do that. But there’s no easy method for achieving digitalization, also known as digital transformation or Industry 4.0. Research shows manufacturers are ready to move forward, but with small steps in carefully controlled pilot projects.

While this a move in the right direction, manufacturers should also recognize that short-term initiatives will not offer the massive gains of an enterprise-wide re-vamp of processes. The true potential of digitalization will come from new revenue streams and outcome based selling. That type of strategy must start at the top, and start now.
