Using Technology to Increase Productivity

Manufacturers across the world are planning and preparing for the fourth industrial revolution through digital transformation – a radical rethink of how they use technology to increase productivity and efficiency.

Enterprise-wide digitisation allows them to change business models, the way they deliver services and the customer experience.

The Chief Information Officer (CIO) is in a great position to drive this change. In the past, they may simply have acted as a point of contact between technology and business, or as a strategy enabler. Tomorrow’s CIO is centrally placed to be involved directly in business strategy, bringing technology that is integrated into different parts of manufacturing – from product design and marketing to finance and factory floor.

Looking carefully at business processes, there can often be a disconnect between IT and business professionals. However the most successful manufacturers are reinventing themselves, fuelled by digital transformation and Industry 4.0. CIOs are aware that their competitors could already be working with a wide range of technologies at various levels of maturity – process manufacturer business and IT leaders already say they have mature deployments of technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, automation, robotics,

It isn’t surprising to see Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) tools deployed in the vast majority of process manufacturers’ organisations. 92% of process manufacturers use ERP solutions; considering it a necessity to bring together their most important functions across people and process, to connect the factory floor to the front office.
