Global Operations Optimization
Optimize processes to relieve the burden in manufacturing unique customer experiences while simultaneously reducing waste in material, time, and energy.
Sustainability is a classical concept in lean manufacturing. The first idea of lean manufacturing is eliminating muda, or waste. Waste is what makes operations non-sustainable. If operations are efficient, we reduce our waste and ecological footprint. Industry 4.0 was about using robots for automation and placing sensors for better visibility on shop floors. These strategies are continuous improvement and could add one to three percent productivity annually. That’s not disruption.
Disruption occurs when you solve the production puzzle by leveraging the digital world. Mastering production complexity, diversity and speed is where utilizing the digital world come into play. With digitalization, you can model, optimize and simulate manufacturing to ensure that operations will run efficiently. Optimizing and solving problems with a virtual experience twin and preventing the problems in the real world go beyond continuous improvement. In the next Industry phase, Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE® is the process disrupter. With interconnectivity to real world operations, a virtual experience twin connects a wide variety of machines and sensors as well as input from operators. The steadily available data on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform enriches the experience by providing real world feedback and connecting the digital and real worlds to solve problems.
These are the elements to answer the challenges of sustainable manufacturing. Reducing waste, mobilizing a virtual experience twin, utilizing virtual loops and expanding participants for 3DEXPERIENCE-optimized operations take manufacturing into the future.
