Closed-loop manufacturing - Using manufacturing operations management to power smart manufacturing
As a manufacturing leader, whether you have embarked on your digitalization journey, are laying the plans or just determining your course, one fact is clear: The journey must be taken if you want to continue to be a manufacturing leader in the next decade. The manufacturing industry is entering a new industrial revolution; it is called Industry 4.0., the Internet of Things (IoT) or Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), digital transformation or simply smart manufacturing. Whatever you call it, it is complex, and represents more of an evolution than a revolution.
How can manufacturers create a technology infrastructure capable of harnessing the power of massive data, and then convert that data into greater efficiency and quality? There are many disciplines involved, but at the heart of manufacturing is where our envisioned products become real – production. The center of the digital infrastructure is manufacturing operations management (MOM). We look at MOM within the overall architecture, and detail the required characteristics that close the loop in the Digital Enterprise.
