-- At present, smart factory best practice is largely based on proprietary software development, which is not commercially available to other production businesses. Furthermore, established integration approaches are not suited to unlock the vast potential of the smart factory transformation. In view of these barriers, most production businesses have either not started their smart factory transformation or have experienced challenging pilots.
Currently, a new class of software solutions is emerging. These systems are supporting a digital model of physical production processes based on real-time data. They are promising a feasible smart factory transformation for every production business. We call this new class of software solutions SMART FACTORY INTEGRATION, utilising networked architecture to facilitate digitised production processes across systems. Anselm Magel Management Consultants are the first to analyse emerging system architectures, which supporting system properties are essential, what commercial solutions are available, and what selection criteria can be applied.
The research also elaborates an effective approach to transform production lines into efficient smart factories. Dealing with dynamic internet of things innovations at the same time ensuring an effective development of the smart factory requires a holistic and AGILE TRANSFORMATION. Our research details proven SMART FACTORY TRASFORMATION METHODS, such as developing the strategic IT/OT blue print, transforming the smart factory in development stages, and rolling out holistic implementation releases.
Anselm Magel Management Consultants' latest research "SMART FACTORIES, STILL A RARE PHENOMENON" analyses success factors of today's smart factories, identifies smart factory best practice, identifies a new class of software solutions we call "SMART FACTORY INTEGRATION"
and details an effective transformation approach to reap full benefits of a smart factory. To obtain the full research or publish parts of it, please follow the link here (https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/kaum-smart-factories-reali...)
