Digital technology today is pervasive. LNS Research global surveys have shown growing engagement in transformation to the point where now more than half of industrial enterprises are actively executing an Industry 4.0, Smart Manufacturing, or similar program, while another quarter of companies are actively planning a program. Many associate these programs, referred to by LNS Research as the autonomous plant, with digital technologies like:
• Artificial Intelligence (AI),
• Machine Learning (ML),
• Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
At LNS Research, we know that it is more than an exclusive focus on these emerging technologies.
Industrial Transformation (IX) Leaders are TWICE as likely to be focused on upgrading/enhancing/updating/rearchitecting their Operational Technology like automation, data historians, and plant quality systems. Specifically, IX Leaders are 156% more likely to consider an enterprise-wide deployment of an Manufacturing Execution System (MES) compared to Followers.
In this Research Spotlight, we explore:
• Why IX Leaders are so committed to MES
• The challenges associated with that commitment
• How IX is changing the requirements and the MES market
