What is Smart Manufacturing?

Smart Manufacturing is the practice of using digital tools to transform the manufacturing process to be more innovative, safe, responsive to customers, efficient, and ultimately, more profitable. Today, companies leverage smart manufacturing to improve FDA compliance, automate manual tasks, and improve supply chain communication as they become leaders in product quality and customer satisfaction.

Where should I start?

Improving the CAPA (Corrective and Preventive Action) and reporting process is one of the best places to start due to it's immediate impact on organizational decision making and its strong return on investment. Our practice was born in the global manufacturing of medical devices for large companies, but the recent maturity of software tools and strategies means distributed solutions are more effective and affordable than ever before.

Am I a good fit?

You should have some need relating to CAPA, process validation, supplier collaboration, or reporting, and should see data as a valuable tool to achieve this need. You should be manufacturing in the electronics field, and serializing your products. You understand that we are consultants, not long term hires, and that it’s our goal to solve problems, train your team, and equip you with tools for long term success.
