Consider two examples from recent interviews with companies using L2L’s LES:
IT Global MES Director—Tier 1 automotive supplier:
"In the cases where lines are running, L2L has played a critical
role in allowing people to understand the performance of the
production line while they've been away from the plant." "We
use mobile devices to notify maintenance technicians, and we
use operator workstations to interact with L2L's LES. And
I think, because those capabilities have already been there,
we haven't had to train the workforce to do things differ-
ently. The social distancing has just come kind of naturally
through that tool."
CI Manager–Process manufacturing co: "Maintenance
and production are still on-site, but supervisors are able to
react to escalation through L2L as opposed to being out on
the floor all the time, which has sheltered them from interact-
ing with people as much during this time." "Our maintenance
team is still conducting their downtime meetings remotely,
and the fact that you have readily available reports you can
run to see the status of an area or what's going on, and the
escalation chain is built in, I don't think they've missed a beat.
I haven't seen any degradation of maintenance support in the
last few weeks."
Whether outside or inside the plant, clarity for managersaround issues that impact production, and how those issuesare being handled makes all the difference.
Why Not Get to Where You're Going Faster?
In the next 5-10 years, will a shift in digital increase ordecrease? Overwhelmingly, the answer is increase. If that'strue, then why not move there faster? The current crisis isaccelerating movements that were already in the works (ITto OT convergence, Io T, Digital Transformation, etc.) Theneed to remotely monitor and influence operational successis not going away. It was there before and has only been intensified by COVID- 19.
The current pandemic, despite all the disruption it hascaused, has given companies a brief window to change direction, to innovate, and to prepare for the future. Nobody isforced to innovate when sales are up. The key is to embracethis acceleration to digitization, get ahead of the competition,and put yourself in the lead as the economy improves.
The next revolution is to digitize plant work done by yourpeople.
