How to create a clear and appropriate Digitalisation Strategy through out the whole value chain?

How to create a clear and appropriate Digitalisation Strategy through out the whole value chain?

Digitalisation requires a clear strategy and should include company's whole Value Chain.

To be competitive today, companies cannot focus only on themselves. The whole value chain should be optimised. For the manufacturing industry, which usually incorporates manufacturers, operators, consumers and maintainers, they all need to be part of the digital value chain. They all have their own specific interest and business needs. They all need to benefit from the change.

Manufacturers are used to provide innovative products to the market with promises of performance. They are interested to capture “As Designed” and “As Built” history. Operators and consumers are buying the performance and services in context with the product or community. They are interested in “As Operated/consumed” history and any improvements of the performance and efficiency. Maintainers are ensuring the performance and continuity of the product lifecycle and interested in the “As Maintained” history. Looking at the digital trends, these are the three main sources of innovation.

Focus on the right things, ask yourself these key questions:

  • What are your customers missing today?
  • Where is the potential for cost savings and improvements?
  • Can this be interpreted from the data?
  • Is our product mature enough to become connected?
  • Do we have the necessary hardware in place?
  • Do we have a trusted partner with the right technology to work with?

Autodesk Fusion 360 Machine Builder and Simulation Preview 

28 September 2021

The machine builder and simulation features in Fusion 360 allow the user to build a machine configuration and 3D machine model adding kinematic movements in preparation for simulation during manufacturing. These features are an essential addition to the prototyping phase of manufacturing, meaning parts can be machined with confidence that minimal restrictions and failures will take place.
