How can companies prepare themselves for #SmartManufacturing?” Here is a quick checklist I would offer to the stakeholders as an answer to this question * Define a strong strategy on what you want to achieve * Rethink all the aspects of the organization structure and processes to get the most out of the investments * Clearly define the business case * Conduct smaller implementations (pilots) before implementing #Industry4.0 for more significant processes * Clearly communicate the actions needed from various stakeholders * Be prepared for change management and have a strong plan for that * Intercommunication and collaboration across multiple departments is required – identify action items to foster that * Identify and address the training needs of the existing workforce * Prepare for the hiring of the new talent as required How are you preparing for Smart Manufacturing?
