Manufacturers are constantly looking for new ways to increase productivity, improve operational output and achieve sustainable excellence in manufacturing. Shop floor performance is especially challenging for today's manufacturers, who operate in an age of complex production and supply chain environments. Business managers who oversee plant operations are not always well-equipped to deal with the results when shop floor operations are not streamlined or optimized. Innovation can lead to excellence, and can be derived from different parts of an organization. People, processes and technology are important tenets be explored for alternative designs and solutions in the pursuit of excellence.

According to the 2016 Manufacturer's Outlook Report Published by PLANT, a leading publication advancing Canadian Manufacturing, which surveyed over 350 manufacturing executives throughout Canada, 78 percent of respondents indicated that productivity is a major priority for them and 68 percent revealed that productivity improvement is very important to the growth of their business. While manufacturing leaders understand the importance of improving productivity, 44 percent of the executives surveyed said that shop floor operations is the most challenging area to improve.

Automating business processes and establishing greater visibility into the productivity of your plant operations. "Connecting the shop floor to the top floor" with plant data being transmitted to senior management and sales teams in real-time and to centralized business systems such as ERP-allowing them to make quicker, more informed business decisions, can create a substantial advantage over competitors.
