Lean Manufacturing & IoT

Lean manufacturing aims to be truly efficient manufacturing.
With the help of IoT this is achieved by allowing teams and tools to automatically collect data, share it and can even interact with information from other data sources, as well as with other processes, opening the organization’s doors to a new way of working.
By accessing and centralizing data from equipment and processes, IoT technology manages to provide manufacturers with:

  • A new level of visibility.
  • Access to real-time performance data.
  • Instant insight into all global operations.
  • Possibility of balancing and optimizing scheduling on the fly, during the production process, adapting to market variability.

Far from being in control of performance, quality or equipment failure records, this new approach has the ability to configure an optimal manufacturing scenario based on current demand. Operations can be completed successfully thanks to the introduction of changes in production, processes or facilities, which ensure optimal conditions to manage demand at any time.
But this is not all, the benefits do not end there since, in addition to the typical productive scenarios, intelligent teams will be able to:

  • Monitor themselves and improve their own performance, such as energy use, to avoid peak demand charges. Automated preventive maintenance becomes possible as the machine knows and communicates its own status of required corrective actions, keeping it running at optimal productivity.
  • Suppliers can better manage parts delivery in inventory, that can be automatically replenished based on real-time data.
  • Automatically adjust equipment settings to minimize waste.
  • Streamline production processes. As more companies add new IoT and analytics capabilities, they are transforming their manufacturing processes. Such as predictive maintenance that predictive tools and machine learning allow, identifying and correcting possible problems before they occur.
  • Improve after-sales service. It is another of the areas where lean manufacturing increases its value thanks to IoT. Support is enhanced by new levels of product connectivity and the information provided by sensors and devices. Manufacturers can collect customer data in use effectively. And thus improve service and support.

The benefits of IoT for lean manufacturing extend far beyond processes within a single organization. IoT can help optimize the interaction between manufacturers, suppliers and other business partners, improving the flow of information on materials, demand and product use. At the same time, the Internet of Things in the field of lean manufacturing represents the beginning of a renewed value proposition that only strengthens the bond with the customer and fosters their loyalty to the brand.
