Find out how operations is a key driver to operational excellence. Operations executives are closest to the processes along the value chain, and as a result are best positioned to drive operational excellence initiatives. However, collaboration with other functions is essential. Data from IT, metrics and measurements from Finance and changing customer and market demand from Sales and Marketing are all drivers for operational excellence. But ultimately, it is the operations function that needs to be responsible for implementation.

What defines cognitive manufacturing maturity? Our study found three stages of cognitive manufacturing maturity. We call those organizations in the earliest stage Observers, followed by Starters and Actives, respectively. These groups differ on two key characteristics: the presence of an overall strategy for cognitive manufacturing, and degree of strategic execution of multiple projects that enable higher project success and significantly fewer failed projects. Strategy is the crucial enabler of higher maturity. How do manufacturers get beyond the obstacles and barriers to increase cognitive manufacturing maturity? The obstacles encountered by our respondents are tied to organizational maturity. Overcoming them is fundamental to increase cognitive manufacturing success. In this report, we’ll first describe cognitive computing and how it gives rise to cognitive manufacturing. Then, we’ll review specific study findings and recommend actions for electronics executives.

Hyper-complex production meets cognitive computing. Electronics manufacturing is surrounded by continuous complexity. Executives face rising resource costs in traditionally low-cost production markets. They must address increasing customization, shorter lead times, frequently changing requirements and shrinking order sizes – all while managing a sophisticated supply network. They need to examine automation potential and maintain critical institutional knowledge. Thinner margins and increased competition threaten consistent quality, risk greater downtime and reduce desired flexibility. Investments in new equipment and automation systems are increasing the amount of data available from the shop floor, but most is not used to its full potential. Now, cognitive manufacturing is transforming production to address such complexity.

Let's face it - EVERYBODY hates performance reviews. For HR, it's just the beginning of the annual paper chase. Executives don't see value in typical reviews because they don't tie back to the organization's overall success. And, most employees see the whole process as busy work, without much real value.

With decisions riding on the timeliness and quality of analytics, business stakeholders are less patient with delays in the development of new applications that provide reports, analysis, and access to diverse data itself. Executives, managers, and frontline personnel fear that decisions based on old and incomplete data or formulated using slow, outmoded, and limited reporting functionality will be bad decisions. A deficient information supply chain hinders quick responses to shifting situations and increases exposure to financial and regulatory risk—putting a business at a competitive disadvantage. Stakeholders are demanding better access to data, faster development of business intelligence (BI) and analytics applications, and agile solutions in sync with requirements.
