A manufacturer's focus and priorities vary considerably by size, industry, product line and complexity, and so on. For a large manufacturer of low complexity products, high-speed, high volume manufacturing with fully optimized shop-floor assets is key to success. But what if your company growth has left you with a lack of standardized processes and reporting methods?
In this Executive Case Study, LNS Research explores how a global connectivity solutions designer and manufacturer was able to standardize processes and reporting across more than 30 plants to date by rolling out a global Manufacturing Execution System (MES) implementation and connecting it to the company's single instance of ERP software for improved Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE) and reporting visibility. Specifically, LNS Research examines:
- The company's challenges in navigating cultural differences across global plant rollouts
- The strategies used to gain executive support for the project
- Next steps for the company as it extends its ambitious MES rollout
- Actionable recommendations
