Automation: Doing More with Less

Automation: Doing More with Less

In the fast-paced world of industrial manufacturing, staying competitive means doing more with less. With automation evolving from a luxury to a necessity, companies are embracing automation to revolutionize their processes. At Automation Distribution, we understand the challenges you face, and we're here to guide you through the transformative journey. Here are our top tips for automating industrial manufacturing:

  • Start by identifying areas where productivity is hindered by friction. Whether it's routine tasks or excessive handoffs, streamlining workflows, such as processing customer complaints, can yield rapid returns and build momentum for broader initiatives.
  • Document the benefits of streamlined workflows, using specific KPIs to gain support from management and end-users. Showcase outcomes like employees leaving on time with confidence in completed tasks.
  • Instead of seeking new solutions for every challenge, integrate existing systems through a unified platform to minimize complexity and costs.
  • Automate end-to-end workflows rather than individual tasks to achieve more efficient outcomes. By addressing the entire process, you can unlock hidden efficiencies and streamline operations.
  • Encourage teams to develop solutions, fostering innovation with low-code/no-code platforms that facilitate experimentation. When employees are empowered to solve their own challenges, innovation flourishes.
  • Leverage data analytics to continuously refine automated processes and encourage the reuse of successful automations. By measuring performance and iterating based on insights, you can maximize the impact of automation.
  • Alleviate employee concerns by highlighting the benefits of automation and providing resources to adapt to change. Investing in training and education ensures that your workforce is equipped to embrace new technologies.
  • Foster a culture where automation is seen as a productivity enabler, supported by change management and forward-thinking leadership. By embracing innovation, you can stay ahead of the curve and drive sustainable growth.
