With the introduction of Industry 4.0, technology is changing the landscape and enterprises in manufacturing are looking for solutions to optimise their factories and supply chain, as well as to ensure the safety of their employees. Over the years, manufacturing companies have digitised their core operations using Material Requirements Planning (MRP) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software. However, many of the critical supporting processes are often run manually, which results in increased compliance challenges and risks.
Boombirds, a zero-code process management platform, empowers manufacturers by transforming manual process workflows into digital form effortlessly. This results in improved operational transparency, ensures quality as well as compliance with custom-defined operating procedures.
Here are some of the ways Boombirds helps enterprises in the manufacturing industry to keep pace with Industry 4.0, boost efficiency, and drive quality and compliance.
Irrespective of the size of company and operation, manufacturers need to conduct regular safety audits to help spot potential hazards, record near-miss incidents, and document non-compliance. Without the right tool, they are ill-equipped and struggle with inconsistent service delivery, lack of management transparency, and the inability to improve accountability and timeliness.
For companies in the heavy industry and manufacturing sector, machine downtime is a disaster. If not identified and corrected early, machine downtime can cost companies millions in repairs, in addition to the loss of productivity due to being offline. Manufacturers today recognise that not having the right means to help manage the coordination and execution of regular large-scale maintenance and repair activities can cause inconsistency, a lack of accountability, and inefficiency.
Once goods are produced in the factory, they are batched and transported to a storage warehouse or to the distribution channel. Transporting a large volume of shipments requires meticulous planning and impeccable coordination. Manufacturers struggle to keep track of these consignments leaving the factory, have limited operational visibility, and often find it hard to maximise the efficiency of their delivery teams.
Quality is an essential part of the manufacturing process. In an ideal world, products have no quality issues, but often this is not the case. When customers make complaints about defective goods, a quality inspector is sent over to assess any faulty items and investigate the root cause of the incident. Because this is a largely manual process, senior management lack a transparent view of defects resulting in limited governance, inefficient follow-up, and an overall inability to identify the root cause for prevention of similar quality issues.
With Industry 4.0, every manufacturer undergoes major digital transformation programs to promote and accelerate innovation and to keep pace with this ongoing industrial revolution. Innovation management requires a new leadership style promoting ‘intrapreneurship’, giving freedom and financial support to create new products, services, systems, etc. Key elements to run innovation programs include agile ideation, prototyping and collaboration among various stakeholders (e.g. innovators, subject matter experts, users, digital teams and external partners).
These are just some examples of how Boombirds can support your digital transformation journey as you embrace the innovations of Industry 4.0. We have a strong track record in leading mission-critical enterprise implementations.
Our professional services team has extensive experience in large-scale global deployments including complex integrations with other core enterprise systems. For example, Boombirds can automatically trigger a maintenance workflow from an IoT-enabled critical machine that needs servicing.
Our iterative, proprietary innovation methodology (DiSPEx) combined with transparent, proactive, and process-driven governance enables rapid delivery of your organisation's strategic objectives.
