SME SPEAKS


availability of completely integrated automation solutions that include a controller, safety I/O, HMI, CNCs and robots—all sharing data easily over a standard open network—can help reduce startup times, while also streamlining operations, intelligence and maintenance. Still, despite the great potential of The Connected Enter- prise and the advancements that are happening today, much work remains to be done. Only 14% of manufacturing execu- tives said they have fully integrated plant-floor data with their enterprise systems, according to an Industry Week survey. Those that have yet to plan for The Connected Enterprise will face challenges, from realigning their organizations and developing the right worker competencies to securely updat- ing their networks and adopting the best technologies. The bigger challenge, however, will be for those not tak- ing part in this industrial revolution. Remaining competitive against manufacturers that can react faster to supply chain interruptions, better understand opportunities to increase their time to market and more intelligently manage their equipment for maximum uptime will be a difficult, if not im- possible, obstacle to overcome.
