Challenges in digitalization of industrial processes
Digitalization brings many benefits to industrial processes, but it can also present some challenges. As a Team at the meshmakers.io we can help you solve these challenges.
Lack of standardization
Many industrial processes involve a wide range of software products from different manufacturers, and these systems may not always be compatible with one another. This can make it difficult to collect and analyze data and this also creates barriers when an integration with other systems is necessary.
Limited data visibility
Collecting data from industrial processes can be challenging, especially if the data is spread across different systems or stored in different formats. Where data I missing it is difficult to gain a comprehensive understanding of operations and this limits the ability to optimize processes.
Digitalization and the building of networks introduces new cybersecurity risks to industrial processes, including the potential for cyberattacks on control systems (including severe process interruption), data breaches, and the exposure of sensitive information.
Difficulty in connecting legacy system
Many Industrial process are based on legacy systems which are difficult to connect to modern technologies, and this is a big barrier for the digitization.
Integration with other systems
Integrating industrial processes with other systems, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP), manufacturing execution (MES) systems and supply chain management systems, is challenging. Sometime because of the lack of integration capabilities of legacy systems, and the very often missing standardization of data semantics and transfer.
Resistance to change
People can be resistant to change, and employees may be resistant to new technologies or changes to the way they work if not included in the digitalization process. If these people are not included properly in this process, it will be difficult to implement digitalization projects and this will slow down the pace of adoption.
Cost and scalability
Implementing digitalization can be costly, and scaling up the implementation can be difficult, especially for smaller companies with limited budget and resources. Especially as the (cost) impact of new Technologies of often complex to evaluate.
OCTO MESH DIGITALIZATION PLATFORM
Octo Mesh plays a crucial role in a digitalization project. By connecting any software with machine data, automating tasks, automatic collection and analyzing of data, and providing operational insights.
Evaluation & Consulting Services
Analyzing the digitalization potential before starting projects in companies with industrial processes is crucial for identifying areas where the most significant improvements can be made and for ensuring that investments in digital technologies are aligned with overall business objectives. By taking this approach, companies can maximize the return on their investments, better prioritize their digitalization efforts, and avoid potential risks.
Project Management & Government Funding
Proper project Management and government funding are essential for a successful digitalization journey. By securing government funding and making use of it as part of a well-structured plan, companies can mitigate financial risks and invest in the necessary digital technologies and resources to stay competitive and thrive in the digital age.
A monitored and well strucutured implementation process which includes timelines, resources, and performance metrics is necessary to ensure successful execution and continuous improvement of your projects.
To ensure the ongoing success of your digitization project you need to focus on specialized expertise, cost savings, and a reduction of risk.
We provide the necessary resources, technical knowledge and support, in order to ensure the efficient and secure operation of your solution. While also providing opportunities for scalability, flexibility and adaptability to changing market conditions, technology trends and customer needs.
