Some of the fundamental requirements of connecting the top floor with the shop floor in a manufacturing business:
- Use one set of data - a single, real-time version of the truth;
- Deliver production and operations insight into the hands of the people who define the strategy;
- Close the loop on the extended supply chain;
- and more!
Making the connection from top floor to shop floor, and back again, can seem overwhelming. Like any strategic goal, it requires senior management commitment, together with motivating and mobilizing everyone and everything throughout the organization in the same direction. Without this level of commitment, informations silos flourish.
