Why Industry 4.0 and Lean go together

As the number of machines on our shop floor increases, the darkness increases, and we stand there, wondering, fearing, doubting…..We have no idea of the current production quantity, which machines are running and which are idle, what is the ROI on the machines, and a hundred other things that we need to know in order to make correct decisions.

Data that we get is too late to act upon (usually in time for the morning meeting which is a post-mortem of the previous day’s activity), or inaccurate. This is where Industry 4.0 and Lean mesh together.

Industry 4.0 and LEAN mesh beautifully together to improve profitability.

The shop floor is where money is made, and where most the company’s investment is concentrated. It needs to be visible, to increase profitability. However, on the contrary, in most firms the visibility is very high in all other areas but very low on the shop floor. ERP systems enable high visibility and quick decision making in sales, finance, HR and inventory, but the shop floor that actually makes money for us is an island of darkness. And deep into that darkness we stand wondering, fearing, doubting, but NOT KNOWING.

Industry 4.0 offers the solution. It can monitor machines and track production quantities, machine downtimes, breakdowns and part rejections, automatically, 24/7. You can get accurate and immediate reports on your PC or mobile phone, wherever you are in the world. You are informed of potential problems before they occur, so you can prevent them, instead of doing postmortems after they occur.

Extend your IT network to your machines ! Spend some of that IT budget on getting instant and accurate data directly from the place where your money is being made – the machines on your shop floor.

Leanworx is a great solution for you to implement Industry 4.0 and Lean.

Increase your profits automatically. Use Leanworx to get accurate and instant data 24/7.
