There was a time when making changes in manufacturing was like trying to move a sleeping elephant using only a skateboard. Lack of communication, time-lagged and siloed data, and manual record-keeping made the task slow and lumbering.
But these aren’t those times. Today, smart manufacturing platforms offer real-time data analysis and insights to make manufacturing more efficient and agile. And when the solutions built on those platforms can be delivered through mobile devices, then smart manufacturing strategies become as agile as someone skilled in parkour.
Britannica defines parkour as moving across or through obstacles by running, jumping, climbing, vaulting, and other gymnastic feats to get from point A to point B in the fastest and most efficient way possible. If you’ve ever seen parkour videos online, it can look like an athletic person defying gravity.
Mobile smart manufacturing applications have the same impact on production, turning the sleeping elephant on a skateboard into a lithe and sleek panther with wings, capable of landing where and when needed with precision and strength. By extending the already considerable power of the smart manufacturing platform to tablets, phones, and other mobile devices, users are untethered from the ground. They have instant access to relevant data and tools they need for their tasks.
Like parkour, mobile platforms allow users to move through obstacles like production machines or processes and enter time-sensitive, relevant inputs. Tablets, laptops, phones, and wearables are like the running, rolling, climbing, and jumping used in parkour to place a user and the data where they’re needed the most.
The ability to access data from mobile devices anywhere on the floor unlocks many benefits for production. These include:
It’s time to change the game. Stop trying to move the sleeping elephant on the skateboard and start enabling efficient production through real-time data and analytics in a connected environment.
