8 Clues Your Factory Needs a Digital Transformation ASAP

As more industries strive towards increased efficiency and reduced operational costs, digital transformation has become an essential part of achieving this goal. Manufacturing plants need to embrace and adopt technologies that enable them to transform their factories to become more efficient and productive.

By embracing digital transformation, plants can implement customized production, meet rapidly evolving customer expectations, and share data across the entire plant in real time. If your factory is yet to implement these digital technologies, you will soon find that your company will struggle to remain competitive, production costs will increase, and you may also end up with dissatisfied customers.

There are several signs that point towards a factory that is in need of digital transformation. Let’s explore 8 of these signs so you can pick up on them and initiate steps towards adopting the right technologies.

To be connected or start planning your funeral, that is not even a question!

Ok, so now we understand 4.0 and IIoT from my very detailed first blog (just kidding...)! I have to say that the past 2 weeks were even more interesting as far as learning goes. But what are we really talking about here? A new trend for some savvy tech guys to make millions and move on to the next trend? Or a true meaningful technology that will change people's life for a long time? Hold on there big fellaw! Not that easy of an analogy.

How the Industrial IoT is Transforming the Workplace

The Industrial IoT is expected to add approximately $14 trillion to the worldwide economy by 2030. However, there is an important gap between applying these technologies in organizations and the ability to capitalize on their full potential.

For many manufacturers, the IoT is overwhelming, a fancy word that is somehow supposed to transform the industry. They find it difficult to believe that the IoT is real and achievable in their specific manufacturing industry. However, thanks to Worximity technologies, the IIoT moves from a theoretical framework to a practical application. Here are 9 ways the Industrial IoT is transforming the workplace.

Digital in Manufacturing: How to Revolutionize Your Daily Tasks

Advancements in technology are revolutionizing how businesses operate across many different industries. The manufacturing industry has not been left behind by the digital revolution. Digital in manufacturing has now become the central focus for most businesses, where they can combine IIoT technologies with their manufacturing processes.

Incorporating the IIoT into manufacturing leads to the development of smart factories that are able to use automation, in-depth data and the digitalization of the production line to achieve higher levels of efficiency. Smart factories are also able to implement more effective communication strategies between operators, departments and management in order to address problems in real time.

With digital in manufacturing, you can revolutionize your daily tasks by making them more efficient and effective. But in what specific ways can digital manufacturing make your factory’s daily tasks easier?

4.0 and IIoT…..of course! wait, what?

About 1 month ago, I meet Yannick Desmarais, CEO of Worximity, to talk about his business and see if there was a fit for me in his company. First, let me tell you that I don’t come from the technology industry and that my professional path is very unusual: 2 years as a trapeze instructor at Club Med, 20 years for an office furniture manufacturer and 6 years as a business owner in distribution and race promotion in the US. No experience in high tech whatsoever! I always told my wife that I missed my calling as I have had a passion for technology for many years. I am that “go-to” guy when your laptop or your iPhone has a problem. Our first meeting was in a great restaurant on McGill Street in Old Montreal and we just talked about what they do and who I know and how I could help. We felt right away that there was a fit, but we didn’t talk too much about their technology.
