Digital signage is critical to efficient manufacturing.
Industry 4.0 connects resources and contributors. However, some production staff are left behind as they still have only limited access to the digital manufacturing resources: they lack real-time access to production data or corporate information to help them make decisions and adjust activities to priorities and fluctuations to streamline production and supply chain.
In recent months, we have observed the deployment of digital signage networks in several industrial units and warehouses. This technology - already widely used in retail, transportation and public spaces - makes it possible to quickly and inexpensively capture the attention of operators without disrupting their work to provide them with the right information at the right time - production KPIs, planning, manufacturing orders, quality, safety instructions… As such, it can contribute directly to improving productivity.
It can also be a source of empowerment for employees who, thanks to it, are in a better position to make decisions, and it is a powerful channel to transmit instructions to new employees and to temporary staff, and thus to accelerate their integration.
Current tensions on the labor market are causing industrial companies to seek for innovative responses to put their employees back at the center of their digital transformation; Telelogos is pleased with the publication of this whitepaper, which is based on the experience and concrete observations of our team, in close collaboration with our partner SAP., explains Christophe Justeau, president of Telelogos.
Recent experience also shows that digital visual communication can actively contribute to the reduction of the carbon footprint and to the efficiency of industrial processes.
The implementation of a digital signage network can immediately reduce paper consumption while avoiding the proliferation of individual digital equipment. Above all, by providing real-time information on energy consumption, waste management and recycling, digital signage can be one of the most powerful media for sharing best practices and empowering the field teams to make the right decisions for sustainability and energy savings, underlines Christophe Billaud, managing director of Telelogos.
