Industry 4.0 is the next industrial revolution. Avoid the iceberg of ignorance by creating a real time Common Operational Picture (COP) at the tactical/operational level.
Only 4% of problems are known by executives
9% of problems are known by operations managers
74% of problems are known by team leaders
100% of problems are known by front-line workers
The Iceberg of Ignorance.
First published in 1989 by consultant Sydney Yoshida. He uncovered a poor distribution of power and information within the hierarchy. Specifically, knowledge of front-line problems went up in smoke the higher he climbed the management chain. Indeed, he found that company leadership was hardly aware of any of the real problems the organization faced. They were, as he put it, only aware of the tip of the iceberg.
Industry 4.0 is not about taking the human element out of your business
Industry 4.0 is about replacing spreadsheets and clipboards with live data. Leverage technology the right way to intake and analyze more business data and deliver it to those who need it in real-time. Our proven solutions lead to better decision-making and better business outcomes, making your operations more efficient than ever before.
Enterprise Asset Management
By incorporating digitally connected assets using Maintenance 4.0 and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies, C5MI DRCM® links production systems and assets with business processes. The result is a digital continuous improvement capability that reduces RCM overhead costs and increases asset availability. Machinery is better maintained, and failures are predicted and prevented before they can impact production.
The main tenet of any Industry 4.0 solution is to connect into the MES/ERP landscape and deploy an RTLS system. Once this step is complete the potential to transform your business is limitless. The key places to start are OEE, Planned vs Actual, and RTLS solutions. C5MI’s method to determine the best approach is founded on our D4 methodology and once deployed leverage our training resources to sustain the gains.
