The Latest Revolution


Manufacturing companies are in the middle of a process of digital transformation that is bringing Industry 4.0 to life. Various digital technologies are driving this transformation, including IT solutions like ERP, MES, CRM, and PLM systems, as well as cloud and cybersecurity technologies.  These technologies are increasing efficiency, transparency, and resilience within organizations’ core processes. 

Integrating new technologies

At the same time, emerging solutions like the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), artificial intelligence, and data analytics are enabling the digital enhancement of products and the provision of new services for customers everywhere. Modern production technologies such as AGVs, 3D printing, and robotics are increasingly integrated into smart factories in order to enhance flexibility, efficiency, and quality in production processes. 

In light of a multitude of opportunities, manufacturing companies face a variety of challenges.

Building digital competencies

Where can we set the right strategic focus in your digitalization efforts? Which directions, initiatives, and use-cases will generate the highest business value? How can we design a future-oriented digital architecture in order to be flexible, scalable, and efficient? Finding the answers to these questions and others like them will determine your success.
 
Finding the right solutions, applications, and technologies for new manufacturing initiatives will not be enough to ensure firms are ready to meet customer demands; these solutions must also be implemented correctly and integrated with existing systems. At the same time, the pursuit of digital change will depend on manufacturing companies being able to win the hearts and minds of their leadership teams and employees. Over the years, Eraneos has supported a multitude of manufacturing companies in ensuring that the challenges that can so often prevent digital transformation are overcome.

Analyzing Machine Data

Structural analysis of machine data helps predict when a machine or a system will malfunction. This enables smart maintenance planning, which can often take place prior to the device breaking down. Moreover, through data analysis, companies can determine with a certain level of accuracy what is the remaining lifetime value of their machine or sensor components.

7
MRO & Supply Chain Optimization

We help organisations reduce unnecessary or accidental orders, optimize the number of purchases, find cheaper alternatives to expensive products, and improve efficiency, by optimizing spare parts and reducing supplier complexity With our solutions, MRO & supply chain optimization, machinery and other assets can be integrated and insight can be gained about operational risk, remaining lifecycle, and anomalies that could lead to unplanned maintenance and outages.
