With today's advances in technology, Big Data is increasingly abundant and the modernization of data visualization enables users to quickly analyze and with today’s advances in technology, Big Data is increasingly abundant and the modernization of data visualization enables users to quickly analyze and gain a deeper understanding of business and manufacturing processes. When innovating solutions, it is necessary to look beyond Lean belt programs by merging Lean methodologies with emerging Industry 4.0 technologies. Merging Lean with Industry 4.0 provides an abundance of opportunity using precise data analytics and near real-time information flow to root cause, proactively engage human/machine and machine/machine interaction, and drive innovative solutions to increase product velocity, quality and cash cycles. Limited resources requires that projects are selected based on overall value versus the latest technology.
Projects must combine the future vision of “True North” while providing immediate value, energizing the organization, and promoting innovation. I am excited to share a sample of successful projects when leveraging Industry 4.0, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data Analytics and Visualization in a Continuous Improvement Framework and Deployment Roadmap achieved at Benchmark. The combination of Industry 4.0 emerging technologies and Lean methodologies increases the ability to engage our organization which has been pivotal to the success of our Benchmark Enterprise Excellence strategy and deployment.
