Digital Transformation: How Involving IT Leads to Manufacturing Success
Manufacturers know that digital transformation is the key to more predictable operations and efficient factories. In order to achieve this objective, Operations leaders seek to deploy technologies that will provide better visibility to the issues that disrupt production performance and guide where to make new technology investments to resolve them. In an effort to move quickly and avoid obstacles, Operations leaders often attempt to select and deploy software and hardware without involving IT. This approach may be appealing initially, but oftentimes leads to unexpected delays and tension between the groups leading to less than optimal selection and implementation of technology.

When contrasting slow and difficult transformations with the smoothest and most efficient, the difference is often the early involvement of the cross-functional team. Involving IT early in the process ensures that you can move faster and realize better outcomes.


Takeaways:
-Understand the short and long-term costs/benefits of timing IT’s involvement in your digital transformation
-IT’s role in making your Operations disruption-proof
-How IT can be instrumental in a pragmatic, ROI driven deployment of technology
See examples of cross-functional team led transformations and why they are successful
