Future-proof manufacturing holds the promise of smart, connected factories starts with digitization and digitalization to make better and more informed decisions.
Digital transformation can help companies realize long-term business benefits, but it takes dedication and strategy to actually transform.
Manufacturers realize the benefits of digital transformation, but many are often ill-prepared to realize the benefits because of organizational and technical readiness.
Many manufacturing facilities are taking on digital transformation initiatives, and long-term maintenance and support needs to be prioritized.
The digital thread ties the digital and physical processes for products, creating a constant loop for refinement and improvement. The same can be said for how we learn and improve.
Sustainability is becoming an important driver for change in the industrial sector as companies look to improve profits while being safe and environmentally-conscious.
Creating a digital thread that provides users with all needed information will help them make better decisions and give their products a longer and more productive lifecycle.
