Industrial 4.0: Transition to Lean Production Mode
Over the years, many companies have been pursuing the principle of lean production, and on this basis, efforts to improve productivity. However, nowadays, when the principles of lean production are rooted in the spirit of many enterprises, some of the classic lean tools began to slowly lose some of the advantages.
At the same time, advances in data acquisition, sensor, robotization and automation, new technologies (including 3D printing), and increased computing power will make advanced analytics possible and offer new advantages to established methods.
Digital performance management combined with advanced robots and automated guided vehicles can further automate manual operations (such as picking and in-car transport) and potentially increase labor productivity by 40% to 50%.
Technology solutions, including robots or advanced analysis algorithms, are easily accessible and installed.
