The session concludes with explicit examples of successful justifications. The module arms learners with information needed to understand and address the competition (internal and external) for scarce resources that exist for today’s manufacturers.
The end user, vendor and integrator need to work together to build the flexible Smart Manufacturing plant that will enable the developing “pull” economy. Together, we need to justify the MOM solution to business leaders as the technology needed for fast market response and even market creation, and to quantify the inefficiencies, risks, rewards, migration path, alternative/compromises, competition (internal/external), decision makers, business drivers, and approval process. Once done, it gets simple.
