Manufacturing

Enhance Productivity with Next-gen Innovation

manufacturing

Overview

Manufacturing is the backbone of economic growth in most countries and has evolved significantly in recent times. The manufacturing industry transforms raw materials, both organic and inorganic, into usable products and extends from textiles, chemicals, plastics, petroleum, electronics, transportation to even food production.

The rise of direct-to-consumer (D2C) sales in the manufacturing sector from both ecommerce sites and company-owned physical stores has helped manufacturing firms to elevate their brand profile, build consumer intimacy, diversify revenue and eliminate middlemen costs.

With extensive expertise and years of experience in the manufacturing domain, Veritis supports global clients by developing tailored solutions that effectively address all their challenges and provide them with a competitive edge.

cloud-computingThe manufacturing industry is one of major beneficiaries of cloud computing with over 90 percent of the manufacturers using cloud-based productivity applications and more than 70 percent experiencing a positive impact on their ability to meet customer demands through the cloud.

Cloud computing is an integral component of the ‘smart manufacturing revolution’ along with other technologies such as high-performance computing, computer-aided design, engineering and manufacturing (CAD/CAE/CAM) and next-gen wireless. It accounts for more than 25 percent of the total inputs required for finishing the manufactured products.

Cloud computing resources can be scaled up and down based on the constantly-shifting project loads in manufacturing firms.

Other significant benefits of cloud-based solutions for the manufacturing industry are application and partner integration, reduced product development costs, enhanced operational efficiency, data storage and analytics, and increased security through best-in-class cybersecurity practices.

Additionally, manufacturers use cloud-based marketing automation applications to plan, execute and track results of all marketing campaigns.

deveops-industryMost organizations in the manufacturing sector are leveraging DevOps in their business transformation initiatives and efforts towards greater agility and speed.

The origin of DevOps can be traced to ‘lean manufacturing’ or the ‘Toyota Manufacturing Method’ that strives for process optimization, minimizing inventory and queue of orders, and maximizing the manufacturing process efficiency. DevOps incorporates several lean principles and focuses on improving the collaboration between the developers and operations personnel.

DevOps solutions ensure the standardization, traceability and transparency of application development processes, operations and business transactions. Additionally, they support centralized control, management and reporting of operations.

The DevOps release automation and continuous delivery practices have enabled manufacturing firms to accelerate their software delivery, thereby lowering costs, saving time and increasing productivity in addition to capturing all the essential control and audit information.

DevOps practices automate processes between software development and IT teams and ensure a stable and reliable development, build, testing and release of software. This in turn leads to a quantifiable ROI.

virtualization-servicesThe growth of the manufacturing industry has been accentuated by the increasing adoption of virtualization with a CAGR of almost 24 percent.

Virtualization helps manufacturing firms in increasing their plant floor efficiency and enhancing security to offset any cyberattacks.

Improved lifecycle management for applications along with reduced risk and faster provisioning are other features of virtualization in the manufacturing sector. Server consolidation through virtualization helps in controlling IT costs and lowering overheads.

Virtualization provides significant advantages to Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) and related automation applications such as extending their lifecycle, reducing CAPEX and OPEX, improving productivity and availability, provisioning VMs on-demand and enabling upgrades without downtime.

it_infrastructure_servicesIT Infrastructure services assist manufacturing organizations by reducing the gap between the factory and the enterprise and building a collaborative network that ensures enhanced performance and profitability. Reduced TCO and improved infrastructure performance result from these services.

Infrastructure management services in the manufacturing sector comprise among others shop floor management, warehouse management, enterprise asset management, service parts management, and manufacturing scheduling and production planning.

To meet the ever-changing market needs manufacturing firms need scalability, agility and flexibility that infrastructure optimization provides. Infrastructure services enable manufacturers to gain a greater visibility into their traditional supply chains and optimize processes that lead to an enhanced customer experience.

Infrastructure services not only assure end-to-end security, comprehensive backup and disaster recovery but also ensure compliance with regulations such as PCI, DSS and others.
