Most manufacturing operations have complete MES systems in-place with ancillary software for performance monitoring. Even within robust computerised and digital manufacturing systems, legacy software, manual processes, and systems that aren’t integrated mean that paper and spreadsheets still exist. This results in an incomplete dataset preventing teams from achieving the full benefits of digital transformation projects and the promise of the future factory.
LineView offers a consolidated digitalisation roadmap that precisely guides your mission to improve OEE using innovation, insights, and data across your entire manufacturing process.
What is Process Digitalisation in Manufacturing?
Digitalisation is at the core of the Factory of the Future: it’s the natural way that manufacturing has to develop to be sustainable and successful. As business leaders push automation into supply chains to make them more efficient, our future factories won’t have enough skill to be able to manage all the technical advancements needed to meet increasing production speeds.
To move from the legacy software and inefficient processes of the past, we first need to digitise end-to-end manufacturing data. Checklists, quality controls, operating data, and key metrics must all be shifted towards paperless manufacturing.
Once paperless, data from every step of a process can be structured, consolidated, and stored in a central cloud. The goal is completely shareable data that can be accessed by every machine in a way that’s readable for each system.
With this, complete digitalisation of the manufacturing process can be accomplished.
The benefits of digitalisation in manufacturing are endless. Integrating live data, KPIs, and instant quality checks into every single step of the manufacturing process elevates and maximises OEE and quality.
Connected machines – seamlessly integrated and intelligently monitored – will push your manufacturing process towards an optimised, safe, and sustainable future.
The Road to Paperless Manufacturing
Digitising your data is the first step towards paperless manufacturing: DigiView is your solution.
Manual performance checks, quality control and operations reporting can all inherently suffer from human error. On top of that, systems that aren’t integrated to a central monitoring platform require extra resources to bridge the data gap.
Transform all production checks from laborious spreadsheets or paper based processes into a digital Industry 4.0 ready process with DigiView, and gain valuable insight into shift operations that can be shared across the enterprise.
DigiView was developed so that routine processes could be captured and recorded in absence of another system to do so. These tactical innovations and other digital manufacturing technologies have paved the way and opened our minds to a more strategic scope.
Going paperless, your quality teams and operators will spend less time on checks and spot quality defects faster – that means more time and energy to focus on optimising production, and less time filing paperwork.
Digitalisation for your future factory, today.
Manufacturing process digitalisation is no longer a nice-to-have, it’s essential to:
- Ensure SOPs are followed
- Reduce waste
- Instantly evaluate machine and team performance
- Maintain quality standards
- Optimise procedures
- Maximise OEE
The factory of the future is already here through LineView’s integrated digitalisation framework.
