Smart Factory

This people-centered digital platform provides manufacturing clients with dynamic predictive data analytics, virtual reality and AI to provide unprecedented performance.

With increasing margin pressure and changing consumer demand, manufacturing performance is paramount

In a business environment characterized by margin pressure and changing consumer demand, manufacturing performance is more critical than ever. Four challenges keep supply chain leaders up at night:

  • Operational excellence improvement
  • Scalability and speed of deployment across multiple lines/operations
  • Internet of things return on investment
  • Building a performance culture

Some hail disruptive technologies as the answer, but new technology alone won’t solve the problem. True performance improvement is delivered by people working with the right processes and the right training and enabled by the right technologies to make better decisions. This is the distinctive benefit of the EY Smart Factory — a cloud-based, integrated, standardized and scalable improvement approach that provides speed and collaboration across global operations.

Through a people-centered digital platform and powered by execution applications, EY Smart Factory embeds manufacturing excellence by arming the shopfloor with dynamic predictive data analytics, virtual reality and artificial intelligence to deliver unprecedented performance.

EY Smart Factory helps manufacturing executives develop, implement and drive global operational excellence programs in a connected and centrally controlled system. It offers access to an extensive database of leading practices, methodologies, tools, training and analytics. The integrated offering helps us assist our clients with tracking and sustaining performance improvement, in which the entire workforce knows why improvements are needed and what needs to be done — by when and by whom.
