Emerging Smart Factory Trailblazers: Capturing along the Digital Journey

Interview with Paul Wellener

50 percent of the organizations are investigating or investing in things around smart factories—we call them trailblazers.

Deloitte and MAPI collaborated on a study in which they found that smart factories have the potential to spark labor productivity. We found that there are three distinct cohorts of adopters of smart factory initiatives: Trailblazers, Explorers, and Followers. The Trailblazers are leading the way; in fact, they are seeing twice the level of gains to labor productivity compared with Explorers and Followers combined.
