Reducing Cost

Reducing costs can be an elusive goal for manufacturers dealing with limited visibility into KPIs, asset health, and workforce performance. By launching a digital transformation strategy, manufacturers get the real-time data needed to: Monitor asset health and workforce performance Track the execution of manufacturing operations, including shifts, job orders, materials, and quality Optimize energy costs This enables manufacturers to compare planned vs. actual execution times and identify needs for worker productivity improvements.

Increasing Revenue

Implementing digital transformation strategies helps speed maintenance, reduce downtime, increase asset utilization, lower costs, increase operational performance, and improve safety/compliance. It's difficult for service professionals to leverage service as a revenue generating source - instead, they view it as a cost center. An IIoT-based service strategy can help drive revenue by introducing new billing models, enabling enterprises to identify new revenue opportunities and service offerings, and allowing service professionals to monitor equipment.

Improving Efficiency

With digital transformation, manufacturers can use data and analytics to monitor asset health in real-time, and in-context, digital work instructions help operators know how and when to fix any issues. Improving service efficiency is a top objective for service teams—but when faced with limited resources and inefficiencies that extend service call time-to-resolution, streamlining service is a challenge. When service teams achieve digital transformation, they leverage realtime remote monitoring and alerts that speed issue recognition and resolution time.
