AVEVA has unveiled its new Discrete Lean Management software to help support digital transformation in the discrete manufacturing market. The new offering will help to improve operational efficiency through the digitalization of lean work management for both manual and automated production lines. AVEVA’s digital tools are designed to be quicker to deploy and easier to use to further enable access to production information, KPIs and notifications on dashboards, workstations and mobile devices to help improve overall equipment and labor effectiveness, and to facilitate data-driven continuous improvement.
AVEVA Discrete Lean Management is designed to address the issues faced by operating manufacturing plants still using paper-based systems for lean and work order management, work instructions and data collection procedures. It enables physical records to be replaced with digital tools that help to mitigate the risk of manual processes and provides real time visibility into production performance allowing better team collaboration in response to production issues.
Yielding More Successful Results in Schneider Electric Manufacturing Plants
