Are we on the path to realizing the digital manufacturing vision? We must first agree on what that looks like, the required ingredients for the transformation recipe, the prerequisite preparation, and the steps that are going to get us there. Does it include Digital Thread, Industrial IoT, and Connected Value Chain? It does for many manufacturers.
In this presentation, we will discuss a framework for assessing the readiness of the organization and developing a roadmap to the future of smart manufacturing ecosystems.
- Define expectations for data exchanges in smart manufacturing ecosystems
- Define organization and architectural requirements for each manufacturer in the value chain
- Establish a smart manufacturing readiness assessment process for the organization
Why Is It Important?
The future of smart manufacturing ecosystems is around the corner. Potential partners like OEMs and customers will have high expectations for suppliers in this new digital data era. Manufacturers that are not ready to participate in the real-time digital exchanges of these ecosystems will be left out of these new and evolving markets.
