Without a strategy, process automation cannot be successful.
The approach without a strategy:
- A new technology is acquired, such as CAM, MES or a tool.
- A proof of concept (PoC) is implemented immediately
- No success criteria have been defined for the PoC
- Only after the PoC do you think about what you might do next
- Initiative stalls
Do you work with a strategy:
- Purpose: How should the strategy be designed to achieve the company’s goals?
- Problems: What specific problems does the project hope to solve? For whom is this important?
- Yield: What opportunities does this project offer besides solving problems?
- Team: How can we get the right team involved from the beginning?
- Requirements: What are the technical requirements needed to make this project a long-term success?
- Action: Get started effectively and save time and money.
The point is:
Without a strategy, the flame that is initially ignited gradually decreases until it is finally extinguished. A clear strategy is always the foundation.
