Designed to give you the freedom to implement the Smart Manufacturing solutions best for your company—free of vendor-bias—Connected Factory Global’s three-phase Smart Manufacturing process, powered by our proprietary Decision Driven® Solution Engine, allows you to avoid the risks and maximize the benefits of building an optimal Smart Manufacturing solution infrastructure.
The Smart Manufacturing roadmapping process includes a thorough review of your company’s goals and a comprehensive, objective analysis that helps you sidestep common business planning mistakes, such as overlooked, poorly made and poorly implemented decisions which ultimately impact the productivity and profitability of your business.
The Three Phases of Creating a Smart Manufacturing Roadmap
Phase I Capability Assessment – An assessment of your company’s current state and future goals relative to potential Smart Manufacturing capabilities. This assessment will focus on the capabilities most likely to help you achieve their business goals. The assessment will also include competitive benchmarking.
Phase II Strategic Decision Framework – For each key decision identified in the Smart Manufacturing Roadmap, the Strategic Decision Framework will clearly identify:
- Performance requirements and constraints associated with the decision.
- Alternatives and selection criteria by which to make the best decision possible.
- Risks to be mitigated for each decision.
- Technologies and solution providers to consider.
Phase III Roadmapping – The final deliverable of the Smart Manufacturing roadmapping process is a three to five year strategic roadmap that identifies appropriate project sequencing, scopes and time frames given the your organizational constraints and bandwidth.
Smart Manufacturing Roadmap engagements normally last six to eight weeks and range in price from $12,500 to $25,000 depending on your unique situation and needs.
