EWI’s Remote Planning for Automation service gives you the tools to evaluate and implement automation with online guidance from an engaged team of experts.
In a shifting business environment, manufacturers must respond quickly to changes in the market. How can you adapt when unforeseen shifts in demand, supply, or regulations affect your workforce and operation? Can you apply automation to address new challenges and thrive in a fluctuating business environment? What steps need to be taken to rapidly and objectively evaluate the application of automation to your production process?
The ability to pivot in the face of a new business reality is the key to manufacturing agility – but it is not simple. While leveraging the expertise of an engineering consultant can be helpul, it can also be expensive and time consuming.
EWI has developed a low-risk, low-cost, consultative program to help manufacturers respond quickly to rapid market changes and to design a coherent plan for moving forward. The Remote Planning for Automation service offers an interactive, online, team-to-team approach to resource assessment, process review, production line modification, and work cell design. Clients work directly in real-time with EWI process experts to develop practical, implementable solutions in evolving situations.
How It Works
- Your team meets with EWI technical associates via online meeting to discuss your challenge, assess your production line, and examine options for automation insertion or enhancement.
- Production processes and/or specific parts are evaluated for automation integration using real-time, interactive software.
- Based on the meeting discussion, EWI configures a 3-dimensional manufacturing model to demonstrate feasibility and functionality of a proposed process or new work cell.
- EWI presents a custom model to your team via teleconference the next day.
