Start driving decisions with machine data.
Categories:

    If you want to succeed with Industry 4.0 initiatives, you absolutely need to collaborate. 

    There are a lot of things to consider - cybersecurity, training, implementation, data management, and more. Technology can be a tool rather than a hindrance when it comes to teamwork. 

    It all comes down to this:

    Work together. 

    It sounds like a simple concept, but it doesn't always work that way. Getting your team to work together during times of change can sometimes be a struggle. 

    Instead of just barking orders, get them involved!

    EHS Today recommended, "Manufacturers should aim to build 15-30% of their workforce as change champions, spread across mission-critical roles, from frontline leaders to plant managers to advanced technical experts."

    This creates a sense of responsibility and ownership among your staff. 

    Automation will not replace teamwork

    In order for automation and Industry 4.0 to be successful, your team definitely needs to work together!

    Technology can actually enhance your team's ability to do so!

    IT Pro Portal said, "Giving team members the freedom to collaborate through the utilisation of innovative and intuitive technologies allows for alignment between teams and helps an organisation maintain a cohesive business vision."

    Instead of seeing technology as a barrier, communicate with your staff and ask what they need to better collaborate. Working together doesn't just mean certain people or certain departments - it means everyone from the top down. 

    How will you merge these two concepts in order to move your employees and your staff forward?
