The complex issues that face manufacturers today are myriad. One of the most intriguing solutions is to implement synchronized parts manufacturing. By adopting a closed-loop manufacturing process, equipment manufacturers can improve their planning by introducing intelligence.
Manufacturers often struggle with facilitating communication and timing between the data and people. As the flow of information becomes increasingly complex, synthesizing all that information becomes a major challenge. If manufacturers don’t embrace synchronized parts manufacturing, problems may arise from the data’s lack of organization.
Today, I welcome back Rahul Garg, the industry leader for Siemens industrial machinery industry. I’m joined as well by Brad Rosenhamer, a portfolio development executive focused on manufacturing operations management for industrial machinery, heavy equipment, and automotive markets.
In this episode, you’ll learn about some challenges facing machine builders, the advantages of synchronized parts manufacturing, and how the digital twin fits into the discussion. Brad also discusses some companies that are successfully implementing synchronized parts manufacturing and we’ll explore why adopting this process is a critical strategy for manufacturers.
In this episode you will learn:
- Some common issues plaguing today’s manufacturers (02:26)
- Why it’s so important to have a synchronized part manufacturing process and some of the risks in not doing so (03:30)
- About the digital twin in the context of digital part production and synchronized part manufacturing (04:48)
