Manufacturing companies that succeed in digitally transforming their business will defeat those that do not. Successful Digital Transformation requires operational change and continuous evolution—eliminating information silos and creating a flow of data that spans the value chain.
Digital Transformation must encompass the full product development process and not, as can often be the case, reach its limits at a certain process or department. CIMdata has seen organizational Digital Transformation initiatives stall once they get past the design engineering phase, leaving operational stakeholders downstream without the data they need to effectively contribute to company success. Program delays occur as these workers struggle to access data, or because they are reliant on data and information that has become obsolete thanks to upstream transformation.
