Mitigating the operational and business challenges inherent in enterprise integration doesn’t have to be painful.
With so many moving parts to think about, bridging the IT/OT gap and effectively closing the loop with your business, operational and automation systems is easier said than done. You must keep your facility up and running while ensuring everything works together without operational friction and safety risk. A daunting task to be sure, especially when you’re dealing with limited staff resources and have many other variables and questions, including:
- How do you determine the best approach for solving specific challenges?
- How can you quantify material consumption quickly at the end of a production run or batch without incurring supply chain delays or additional inventory or labor costs?
- How do you incorporate new technologies, such as Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), data analytics, cloud data storage, etc.?
- Is the right data being captured at the right frequency and granularity to enable effective analytics?
- Is the right data available to the analytical people in your organization who can use it to improve your asset performance and ultimately your business outcomes?
- What is the baseline for acceptable asset performance?
- Have you considered using a metric like overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) to measure the efficiency of your operation and assets?
- Are you using key performance indicator (KPI) dashboards to give visibility to how well or badly your assets are performing?
- Do your maintenance requirements schedule you, or do you schedule them?
- How can you empower your operators and reduce risk?
