Smart Manufacturing gives plants the ability to achieve new levels of performance, control, agility, optimization, quality and safety. Nevertheless, the deployment is challenging in many dimensions:

  • Complexity: many existing and upcoming (smart manufacturing) technology building blocks, platforms and vendors are involved, which demands a highly structured approach to deploy them.
  • Comprehensive enterprise architecture: the target platform need to be deployed across the whole company and will define how systems connect, communicate and share data/information. Modern architectures need to be “Future Proof”, supporting the change from centralized to distributed / decentralized functions.
  • Aligned with business strategy: this requires clear definition of business strategy and current business drivers, aligning the manufacturing transformation goals to this strategy.
  • Clearly defined current/future modes of operation and roadmap: a clear definition, measurement and documentation of present state of digital technologies is needed, in order to design a desired future state and a roadmap to get there.
  • Expert resources & knowledge: right expert resources and additional capacity to deploy, support and scale the transformation based on best practices and catalyze the right choices for your business.

A common failure of many product manufacturers trying to realize the benefits of “smart manufacturing” is lack of a proper IT/OT foundation on which smart manufacturing applications, such as production planning, supply chain management, production control & monitoring, etc. can be deployed.


We leverage end-to-end services to design, deploy and maintain the IT / OT technology foundation that helps companies achieve the full benefits of “smart manufacturing”.

  • Operations first: Our business-centric transformation approach starts from manufacturing operations (as-is and to-be) to frame the design of the future IT/OT system, the selection of supporting technologies and appropriate roadmap.
  • Proven end-to-end methodology: We manage our clients’ transformation roadmap as a fully structured program, taking responsibility of the program office and target IT/OT manufacturing design, integration and validation.
  • Technology agnostic: End-to-end vendor agnostic integration that enables the selection and integration of IT/OT elements across a multitude of technologies & vendor solutions.



    Develop plan that translates business strategy and manufacturing objectives into a digitized manufacturing execution and management system.

    • Align strategic intentions with IT/OT technology potential & selection
    • Define current & future modes of operation
    • Design enterprise architecture (process, application, equipment layers), etc.
    • Develop transformation roadmap & bus. cases

    Lead the transformation program office and act as the IT/OT systems integrator to direct the implementation of the plan/program with partners and suppliers.

    • Align governance model with sourcing, business and IT/OT architecture
    • Set up & manage Program Office (governance, projects management, etc.
    • IT/OT systems integration

    Support/provide managed services to maintain the IT/OT infrastructure / operations.

    • SLA-based support service
    • Contract management
    • Continuous improvement
    • Portfolio management
    • Site onboarding
    • Change management
