IDC: Factory Digitization in Saudi Arabia

Factory Digitization in Saudi Arabia | IDC report | GE Digital

The rise of digital economies and societies presents great opportunities and challenges to manufacturers.  According to IDC's Worldwide Smart Manufacturing 2019 predictions, 80% of manufacturers will need to extensively restructure their operations, placing data at the center of their processes to increase speed, agility, efficiency, and innovation.  

Manufacturing digitization is one of the key pillars of Saudi Arabia's industrial development plan. The Saudi Industrial Property Authority (MODON) is playing a critical role in facilitating digitization and achieving the transformation and modernization vision of the industrial sector. 

In early 2019, MODON and GE Digital launched the National Productivity Program (NPP). The NPP aims to help 100 selected factories located in MODON industrial cities with their digital transformation (DX) journeys. Read how GE Digital's solutions are maximizing overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), improving production scheduling, ensuring product quality, reducing work-in-process (WIP) and streamlining the overall supply chain.
