SMART MANUFACTURING THROUGH CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT 27 Feb – 1 Mar 2019

COURSE OVERVIEW

A decisive response from business decision makers to invest in process transformation will enable the manufacturing enterprises to renew and rejuvenate manufacturing. A ‘sprint to value’ forms the basis to ‘get on’ with process redesign that takes on the digital and technological advances to implement lean solutions that advances to Industry 4.0 (I4.0).
The urgency for transformation arises from a number of imperatives including:

  • Regulatory challenges including macro-economic and geopolitical challenges
  • Cost of energy – natural resources are limited
  • Competition from a customer experience perspective
  • Complex supply chain that crosses national boundaries
  • Compliance with Social, Economic and Environmental requirements
  • Smart technologies
  • Premiums on human talent

AGILE manufacturing collaborates to release products that deliver value. Collaboration occurs through the interactions of work teams and with customers to determine the flow of materials, through the interactions of work teams and with customers to determine the flow of materials,
information, and decisions that respond and adapt to changing expectations and environment. Business Process Improvement (BPI) is the corner stone that underpins these initiatives, efforts and information, and decisions that respond and adapt to changing expectations and environment. Business Process Improvement (BPI) is the corner stone that underpins these initiatives, efforts and resources to assure the delivery of value solutions. Each increment in value is delivered swiftly and resources to assure the delivery of value solutions. Each increment in value is delivered swiftly and responsibly.

BUSINESS PROCESS IMPROVEMENT PLUS 25 – 26 February 2019

INTRODUCTION

Power and Utilities (P&U) executives recognize that transformation has to take root. The writing is on the wall - revenue growth is down and demand for innovative solutions is up. Transformation must find a way to close the gap and provide value for customers profitably. Disruptive technologies demand that there be a response. Transformation efforts have a number of fronts. There are no exceptions; from electricity generation to demand response, gas transmission to delivery, water purification to wastewater disposal and the maintenance and metering demands. The urgency for transformation arises from a number of imperatives including:

1. Regulatory challenges including macro-economic and geopolitical challenges
2. Cost of energy – natural resources are limited
3. Competition from a customer experience perspective
4. Complex supply chain that crosses national boundaries
5. Compliance with Social, Economic and Environmental requirements
6. Smart technologies
7. Premiums on human talent

Effective P&U response demands a comprehensive assessment of organizational and process capabilities to define the ‘take-off’ points for transformation. At the core, the objective of transformation lies in operational efficiencies. The fourth industrial revolution defines the dimensions for transformation starting with Business Process improvement (BPI).

DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION IN MANUFACTURING

The future of manufacturing is in technology and it is obvious that the next generation of top manufacturers will come from companies that leverage technology in their manufacturing process. Therefore, the development of new industrial technology is at full speed and is changing the old traditional manufacturing factories into smart factories where manufacturing processes are connected to one another. The traditional factory mainly focuses on providing high-end quality service or product with the least cost and tries to achieve better performance possible. In contrast the smart factory involves the usage of machines which can communicate with each other, predict failure, and trigger maintenance processes autonomously which react to unexpected changes in production.The latest technology development does not only help manufacturer to boost up their productivity but also will bring them one step closer to fulfil customers’ wants and needs.
