Deliver competitive advantage with analytics-based knowledge 
Digital transformation and digitization in manufacturing encompass a wide range of technologies (AI, ML, digital twin, robotics, etc.) applied to innumerable areas of focus with varying degrees of success. 

The need for manufacturers to do more with less has only intensified over recent years. One of the most successful areas of application of digitization for manufacturers has been the application of industrial analytics to existing process data for better understanding of the process, delivering early-warning signals for better decision making and the ability to capture and leverage precious SME expertise.

What is manufacturing digital transformation?

Digital transformations are revolutionizing all aspects of manufacturing, touching not just processes and productivity but also people. Digital transformation is the integration of digital technology into all areas of a business resulting in fundamental changes to how businesses operate and how they deliver value to customers. Additionally, it is a cultural change that requires organizations to continually challenge the status quo and sometimes requires organizations to walk away from long-standing business processes that companies were built upon in favor of relatively new practices that are still being defined.
