Moving Manufacturing Beyond Lean with Digitalization and IIoT


Many manufacturers are enabling lean manufacturing across their production lines to boost efficiency. But, what about digitally? Are manufacturers able to look at all their data and glean insights from it? Do they digitally capture all the data they need to perform a thorough analysis to go beyond lean? According to Gartner, that doesn’t seem to be true. Gartner estimates that 70% of all the shop floor data goes unused, and much of the problem is that it’s not directly usable in the paper form that it’s in, or it’s trapped in the machines on the shop floor.

AutomaTech’s Technical Director, Matt Bernhard, and GE Digital’s Senior Product Manager, Joe Gerstl, discuss how manufacturers can surpass the performance plateaus of lean manufacturing by leveraging IIoT technologies, such as Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES).

Watch our webinar to learn how leading manufacturers, such as a global food manufacturer Toray Plastics and GE Aviation, have embraced these powerful tools to:

  • Deliver insights to the right people at the right time
  • Adapt to meet your customer demands
  • Drive short term and long-term decisions around equipment, people, suppliers, and more
