There is great competition in plant engineering worldwide. Plant design offers a lot of potential for optimized processes. Naturalized workflows and tools are no longer up to date and pose ever greater problems for companies. Progressive digitalization does not stop at plant planning and is spreading in leaps and bounds. But what does digitization mean for your processes and your company?
It is widespread that engineering, planning and documentation of a plant are carried out in different software programs. Changes are often made individually by hand. This is not only immensely time-consuming, but also imprecise and error-prone.
Breaking up old processes and clearing the way for something new
It is widespread that engineering, planning and documentation of a plant are carried out in different software programs. Changes are often made individually by hand. This is not only immensely time-consuming, but also imprecise and error-prone. In the case of very extensive projects, updating a bill of materials alone can take days, and this adds to the project costs.
Digitization aims to increase the productivity and quality of plant planning by merging all processes into a single software solution or integrating individual software solutions.
Process analysis as a basis
The basis for digitization is a conscientious analysis of existing processes and workflows. First, it must be ensured that existing processes mesh seamlessly. Process engineering design, specification, construction and documentation must support each other and process clearly defined tasks. Only when this is done can one consider how software can support these processes.
Professional help is very useful for process analysis. Every company works individually and has unique workflows. A competent view from "outside" focuses on the essentials.
Contact either a process specialist, or directly the software partner with whom you want to implement digitization. Accurate and forward-looking execution very quickly translates into lower process costs, faster project execution times, and increased competitiveness.
Process analysis as an important first step towards successful digitization
In summary, it can be said that you first have to know your workflows precisely in order to then transfer them profitably to the digital world.
