Struggling to deliver on the promise of digital operations?
Both discrete and process manufacturers face unprecedented demands, from sky-high customer expectations to the drive for sustainability.
They need to boost efficiency, flexibility and safety to survive in a world of growing economic, environmental and regulatory pressures. To gain the visibility and control they need, they must push beyond single-site, “Industry 4.0” digitization efforts and optimize the entirety of their production, workforce and supply chain networks.
But with operations and assets spanning the globe, hampered by legacy technology, transforming can become a real challenge.
