Innovation Hub – Manufacturing
Innovation in Manufacturing
The Manufacturing industry has always looked for better, faster and cheaper methods for building the materials that they create. These processes are a constant focus of improvement and are extremely efficient. The non-manufacturing side of the house has historically not had the same focus.
The Intelligent Automation Innovation Hub for manufacturing is designed to provide a collaborative location with access to technology and business process experts for manufacturing organizations to better understand the art of the possible. The Hub assists organizations in preparing for the future of work around automation, AI and Machine Learning.
Through workshops, process intake and prioritization sessions and walk-through of use cases, the HUB will accelerate the time to value and ensure the manufacturing organization can sustain the success going forward. The sessions available at the Hub provide both top-down and bottom-up approaches to intelligent automation.
The future of work
Problem solving for tomorrow’s innovations
Challenges in Manufacturing
Prioritizing the main challenges in manufacturing in order to directly target our process improvement efforts
Continued demand for operational cost reductions
Manufacturers have always operated lean, but they now need to innovate to survive. In order to fund large R&D projects, smaller budgets are available for process investments.
Secondary focus on support operations
Because the previous focus has primarily been on the manufacturing process, many groups are left using outdated legacy systems with no path to modernize. Manual processes have been added and extended in order to get the job done.
Pressure from government to provide data
As a result of recalls and traceability requirements, manufacturing companies must produce accurate information reports without increasing operational costs. This reporting comes from outdated systems and antiquated processes, which leads to more manual work.
