The pursuit of improvement and change is constantly ongoing in the industry. The person responsible for production needs to find new solutions that make the business more competitive and many times the only solution is to use data analysis. The budget is limited and thus also the possibility of introducing new functions in automation. How ready are you for data-driven production in practice?

Have you already worked for many years with digitization and spent a lot of money but still not managed to start working computer-driven? For those of you with responsibility for production, the company’s core business, perhaps the idea of ​​IT infrastructure feels like something foreign – “it is the IT managers who will provide us with the right technology?”.

In fact, your insights and experiences are needed to successfully implement a data-driven production. And the first step in starting the work is not really about technology!

Data is the fuel for your competitiveness

You may be asked by a customer: “Why can we buy similar products from China for half the price” – and you think you need to improve the current way of working because you know that foreign competitors have lower staff costs and not always as strict requirements on safety, working environment and emissions.

In Sweden, a high standard of production is expected, but changing the legal requirements or employing twice as many people on the factory floor are not realistic measures to increase your competitiveness. The answer lies in taking advantage of, and using, the data that your existing production equipment already generates to become faster, get higher quality, reduce the number of production stops and become efficient.

The need to work computer-driven becomes extra noticeable when the automation ceiling is reached and you realize that efficiency must be increased in another way. Suddenly you understand that the decisions and actions you make in production must be more precise, they must have facts as a basis; you need to start working data-driven. But what do you do then to start using production data in practice?

Data-driven production begins in the company’s culture and with the right solutions

Becoming more data-driven is not primarily about technology, but about how management decides that changes should be implemented and how the company analyzes data in general.

Start by finding out where you are today. Perhaps there is already an idea of ​​different areas where it should be possible to collect adequate data – often expertise from several people is needed to understand the problems, what different solution alternatives may be relevant and what the outcome should be.

Once you have realized the possibilities of efficient data collection, it is time to choose a suitable IT solution. A solution that is cost-effective, fast and easy to implement and increases your productivity with applications intended for the manufacturing industry.

By transforming production data into valuable knowledge, the competitive advantages and the opportunity to create new business models are strengthened by utilizing the data of the factory and production equipment.
