Businesses require critical equipment to be running at peak efficiency and utilization to realize their return on capital investments. These assets could range from aircraft engines, turbines, elevators, or industrial chillers - that cost millions - down to everyday appliances like photocopiers, coffee machines, or water coolers. Businesses face high operational risk due to unexpected failures and have limited insight into the root cause of problems in complex systems.
Predictive maintenance (PdM) is a popular application of predictive analytics that can help businesses in several industries achieve high asset utilization and savings in operational costs. Spyglass MTG leverages Azure Data, Power BI and AI services to prepare, build and train, deploy and integrate predictive scenarios into your operational workflows.
There are 2.7 billion firstline workers around the globe, and only 13% of them feel engaged at work. Modern SharePoint intranets help connect them, and Windows 10, Azure AD, and EMS make that connection secure! Information can be staged with Sunrise and Sunset dates, and all presented through Modern SharePoint interface.
By enabling firstline employees to use shared devices, manufacturing organizations can reduce costs and increase security. Most manufacturing employees take a shared device each morning to use at their workspace for the day. Reducing the number of devices that are in use allows a manufacturer to save money not just on physical devices but also on licensing costs. At the same time, this allows them to reduce their security threat surface. Leveraging modern cloud services, such as Microsoft Intune and enterprise mobility and security, combined with Widows 10 Hello and FIDO2 effectively enables the organization to manage Windows 10 devices that can be shared by multiple users for their shift or workday.
Event and Incident Reporting covers the processes and procedures that your organization will use to protect its employees and the public. Ensuring employees have access to the latest policies and procedures is essential to ensuring the safe operations of the facility. Enabling employees to report issues, such as a burnt-out light bulb or leaking fridge, as quickly and accurately as possible enables the organization to effectively document and remediate the issue in an appropriate time frame. Office 365 and the Power Platform provide the tools to build a cost-effective Event and Incident Reporting platform that meets your unique needs.
SOPs change regularly based on new regulations, new processes, etc. Keeping those SOPs up to date and find-able throughout the organization is key. Creating a workflow for content refreshing, and a Teams environment for collaboration, together with a SharePoint intranet site for publishing to the entire organization is paramount to the success of this solution.
Getting input from employees on corporate ideation is critical, and the innovation hub facilitates that process. Challenges can be issued to certain groups of employees to illicit input and feedback. Who has an idea for how we can increase throughput on the line? How can we ensure shop floor safety? Those are the types of questions that can be asked in the innovation hub.
Policies change regularly based on new regulations, new processes, etc. Keeping those documents up to date and find able throughout the organization is key. Creating a workflow for content refreshing, and a Teams environment for collaboration, together with a SharePoint intranet site for publishing to the entire organization is paramount to the success of this solution.
If you take the example of a medical device manufacturer.. content needs to be presented to manufacturing partners, supply chain, manufacturing reps, doctors, even the end patient that will be searching for information on what they may be leveraging for their condition, etc. Content needs to be disseminated to each constituent in the same or different ways depending on its type. All of this can be managed with M365, and Spyglass MTG can help you roll this out.
Health, Safety, and Environment covers the processes and procedures that your organization will use to protect its employees, the public, and the environment. Ensuring employees have access to the latest policies and procedures is essential to ensuring the safe operations of the facility. Enabling employees to report issues, such as equipment failures or chemical spills, as quickly and accurately as possible enables the organization to effectively remediate the issue and create a Corrective and Preventive Action (CAPA) plan. Documenting hazards in the environment, the risk it represents to the employees or the public and steps the organization is taking to minimize the risk is all part of the Risk Management process. Managing and documenting risk is an essential part of the HSE toolset. Providing reporting on critical events, CAPAs, and other key performance metrics is essential to ensuring a safe workplace. Office 365 and the Power Platform provide the tools to build a cost effective HSE platform that meets your unique needs.
For a large chemical and material manufacturing company, we worked to provide a custom .NET application modernization utilizing Angular and CosmosDB, and integrated with EDW and accounting systems. We provided full project lifecycle services from the assessment of the current app through requirements, design, and implementation. We improved user experience by progressively displaying required data of each phase and optimizing workflow, including mobile approvals. We enhanced Forecasting Accuracy and Efficiency as well as replaced Lotus Notes app with modern platform using the latest in web development and Azure services.
We also worked with a beer manufacturing company to help them manage policies and standing operating procedures to increase efficiency and improve productivity. We needed to provide firstline employees with the reassurance that they were operating with the most recent and most accurate information. In order to achieve this, we created a detailed intranet for the company that allowed resources to be shared, audited, and maintained. We also created areas on the site for feedback so that all employees felt heard and engaged.
