Production is setup according to delivery requirements and lean inventory schedules. Disruptions that occur in supply or demand are difficult to respond to in a timely manner.
Goals and Objectives
Maximize product line uptime, control assembly variability/offerings, improve inventory resilience, avoid paid furloughs/layoffs/attrition, and maximize profits.
Hardware: Servers, storage, and IoT
Software: Big Data/analytics, machine learning, cloud, SCM, MES, and ERP
Services: IT services and connectivity services
Use Case Summary
Process manufacturing quickly adapts to supply constraints and product lines support smaller batches, flexibility, and inventory optimization (tied to profits).
