Smart connected operations leverage digital technologies across product development, manufacturing, operations, supply chain and service to improve Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), increase safety, decrease enterprise risk and return measurable shareholder value.
With smart connected operations, manufacturers can achieve significant financial benefits, including:
- Improved OEE measurements
- Improved production capacity
- Reduced downtime events
- Improved labor efficiency
- Increased productivity
- Reduced maintenance cost
- Increased asset utilization
- Reduced service call time
We help manufacturers use interconnected machines and devices, intelligent analytics, and connected workers across the value chain to enable Smart Connected Operations.
