There is an increasing need to analyse and share data in real-time on the shop floor. Enriched data that is routed correctly and shared instantaneously via notifications with the appropriate people adds value throughout the manufacturing process. Digitalisation tools enable collaboration and allow stakeholder responses to be automatically fed back into the system, simplifying or eliminating unnecessary steps and tasks for optimal efficiency. Efficiently digitalising and orchestrating data essentially provides an operational digital twin, enabling greater levels of automation.
Through 2022, manual data management tasks will be reduced by 45% with the help of machine learning and other technologies (Gartner)
Using continuous analytics could reduce time for integration by 30%, deployment by 30% and maintenance by 70% (Gartner)
