According to IDC, 50% of manufacturing supply chains will have benefitted from digital transformation by 2019, leaving outdated systems behind. If you represent the other half, it is time to adapt and take your supply chain to the next level – here is how.
The Intelligent Factory
The Manufacturing field is transforming, and the latest technologies have already given rise to the smart factory. Manufacturing organisations are connecting factories to gain real-time visibility into their supply chain.
There are many advantages of going the connected route, including increased productivity and efficiency, ease of maintenance, fast response to breakdowns and bottlenecks on the production lines.
Ultimately, the customer benefits from this streamlined production process, which optimises product quality and costs.
The new release of Dynamics 365 for Operations is Microsoft’s new business solution for medium to large organisations. Dynamics 365 for Operations was previously known as AX7 and is a single software system that helps run businesses more effectively. It is a digitally transformed financial and operational ERP system.
Manufacturers can no longer rely on outdated supply chains without access to real-time data. It has become necessary to access this data and analyse it to get the most out of the production process and make improvements.
Powerful data analytics enables manufacturers to gather important information for their supply chain, including order fulfilment, customer service and product performance.
Built-in analytics transforms your entire supply chain and is the best indicator of future business scale operations, customer satisfaction and financial performance.
The Internet of Things (IoT)
IoT has completely changed how manufacturing runs on production lines thanks to intelligent and inter-connected equipment and machinery equipped with sensors that collect data and communicate any changes, bottlenecks and faults in the process.
It means manufacturers gain visibility across the entire production line and benefits from immediate insights and feedback to manage production, and detect and diagnose problems.
Not only is IoT increasing the uptime of your supply chain, but it can also be instrumental in identifying opportunities to streamline the production process further.
