Digital Transformation in Manufacturing
Piloting the digital transformation initiatives is the initial step for digital transformation. The challenge is to roll out successful pilot projects to the entire organization.
“Lighthouse factories” have taken digital technology from pilots to integration at scale, thus escaping the inertia of “pilot purgatory’’.
Arcelik invested in the next generation smart washing machine plant in Romania as a digital factory which uses AI based decision making enabled by real time data of processes, contexts and events.
This plant will be the gate to data driven, fully digital, end to end integrated production system, which will move us beyond digital age.
Our lighthouse; structured by digital manufacturing architecture, smart action ,holistic end to end ecosystem; has value drivers to create global impact; integrating virtual and physical world..
Digital transformation will change not only companies but also the entire society and even humanity. It is critical to map the business model triggered by digital transformation and its impact on governments and societies.
