The past year’s extraordinary operational challenges have been putting manufacturers to the test. While some manufacturers successfully maintained operations, others struggled with worker safety, supply shortages, and dramatic dips and spikes in demand. A key factor that differentiated the companies that adapted and flourished was their use of lean manufacturing solutions.
Lean manufacturing, coupled with Industry 4.0 digital technologies such as AI and machine learning, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), cloud computing and analytics, and virtual and augmented reality, has been helping manufacturers to create smart factories. And as the benefits of lean manufacturing have once again been highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic, many manufacturers are now investing in lean manufacturing solutions driven by advanced sensors, robotics, and software to enhance productivity and foster growth. Some manufacturers are even investing in automating their entire digital supply network (DSN), for gaining a real-time overview and matching needs with available materials across their ever-more-complex distribution network.
