Digital Factories

With the dawn of smart devices and the internet of things the context in which an organization must deliver its products and operate is becoming increasingly unstable. A products is not just a product anymore, it is an advanced smart device which can communicate through software and IT in order to fit the customer’s needs and improve the customer experience.

What it means for you

Today competitive advantages come from more than pricing and product differentiation alone. Digital Factories concerns itself with modernization and digitalization of traditional manufacturing.  The focus to your customers’ changing demands through flexibility and responsiveness is what it takes to succeed. This can only be achieved through a heavy focus on digital innovation.

Typically, a manufacturing enterprise would be describe in a multitude of incomprehensible documents, spreadsheets and whiteboard drawings. In the end, such an approach is inadequate for realizing digitalization opportunities, because it would be resource intensive as the information might be inconsistent, not readily available or even non-existing.

Not managing a manufacturing enterprise in a single coherent system can cause a multitude of potential hazards for enterprises such as excessive use of resources, lack of synergy, poor integration between processes, and even bottlenecks.

For the first time ever, it is now possible to integrate digital product design in your architecture. Through research in different large projects QualiWare now enables everything from Product design, Product networks, Products roadmaps, product variants and even the product canvas to become part of your digital business design in your Enterprise Architecture.

Furthermore, QualiWare Enterprise Architecture provides a modeling environment that graphically represents all the integrated enterprise dimensions, and is compatible with a vast array of different frameworks. Due to the Suite’s object- and repository-based nature, any single object can be related to any other within the architecture. An entire organization – including strategy, business and technology – can accordingly be captured, analyzed, and changed through one integrated, holistic model.

The Collaboration suite will enable you to communicate the current operations and any changes via acknowledgement and subscription features, accompanied with an integrated social analytics to help you keep track of how well the information is being communicated throughout the organization. Additionally you can gather feedback from the whole organization in the form of change requests, comments and ratings structured via the governance workflow engine.

Advanced

QualiWare even enables delegation of modeling responsibilities within the enterprise. Web Object Editing and Web Modeler can be used to, for example, grant specific business process owners the ability to model business processes and write descriptions themselves. This way you can let the domain area experts provide the needed information directly into the repository.
