Key Considerations for Developing Smart Machines and Equipment
You are challenged to innovate continuously to stay competitive. As more end-users move to a Connected Enterprise to optimize their production and supply chain, they want added value beyond the machinery or equipment. They also expect you to help address their most pressing needs:
- Global competitiveness
- Workforce readiness
- Changing risks
- New technologies
End-users want you to deliver smart machines and equipment that easily integrate into a facility, provide access to information, and enable agile reaction to changing market demands.
To help simplify the process, you should focus on three key ingredients in design:
- Processes: Meet end-users on their journey to The Connected Enterprise and identify their needs
- Technology: Incorporate the right technologies and capabilities
- People: Build the necessary skill set, both internally and externally
