Distinctive traits of digital frontrunners in manufacturing
Embracing the Fourth Industrial Revolution
It is imperative for manufacturers to achieve digital maturity across their broader enterprises. A Deloitte study examines the successful steps taken by the frontrunners.
The rise of the digital supply network
Industry 4.0 enables the digital transformation of supply chains
Today's digital supply networks integrate information from many different sources to drive production and distribution, potentially altering manufacturing’s competitive landscape.
Industry 4.0 and manufacturing ecosystems
The marriage of advanced manufacturing techniques with information technology, data, and analytics is driving another industrial revolution—one that invites manufacturing leaders to combine information technology and operations technology to create value in new and different ways.
3D opportunity for the talent gap
Additive manufacturing and the workforce of the future
As additive manufacturing (AM) transforms the engineering and manufacturing industries, the broader manufacturing workforce is struggling to adapt to the rapid pace of change. An agile workforce planning process can help to bridge the AM talent gap.
Making maintenance smarter
Poor maintenance strategies can substantially reduce a plant’s productive capacity. As machine parts are taken offline for servicing, many organizations face the challenge of weighing lost production time against the risks of breakdowns. Predictive maintenance could be a solution.
Industry 4.0 and the digital twin
Manufacturing meets its match
As manufacturing processes become increasingly digital, the digital twin is now within reach. By providing companies with a complete digital footprint of products, the digital twin enables companies to detect physical issues sooner, predict outcomes more accurately, and build better products.
