February 7, 2020 – AVEVA has unveiled its Discrete Lean Management software to support digital transformation in the discrete manufacturing market. The offering works to improve operational efficiency through the digitalization of lean work management for both manual and automated production lines. AVEVA’s digital tools enable access to production information, KPIs and notifications on dashboards, workstations and mobile devices to improve overall equipment and labor effectiveness, and to facilitate data-driven 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 mitigate the risk of manual processes and provides real time visibility into production performance allowing team collaboration in
The AVEVA Discrete Lean Management software solution is used in Schneider Electric’s manufacturing plants and has been successfully deployed in more than 70 smart factories globally resulting a 10% productivity increase due to downtime mitigation and 70% improved response-time due to automated escalation of production issues.
The World Economic Forum has commended four of Schneider Electric’s Smart Factories for comprehensively deploying a wide range of Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies and use cases at scale, while keeping people and sustainability at the heart of their innovation strategies.
The solution also works to minimize the number of manual production and lean data collection tasks leveraging the full range of AVEVA’s connectivity to IoT devices and over 200 plant automation systems. AVEVA’s global presence and partner ecosystem enable manufacturing companies to execute their Industry 4.0 and manufacturing operations transformation strategies. It is available as a part of the AVEVA Flex subscription program, designed to give customers complete flexibility in the procurement, design, management and utilization of their industrial control systems, empowering customers to adopt transformative technologies.
