Why Technology Investments Often Fail
Many manufacturers start by asking vendors to demonstrate technology, hoping to get great ideas for how to use whichever tech is selected. This leaves vendors unclear how to help you, or what exactly to demonstrate. The team can get distracted by useful features and lose focus on the desired outcome. That’s putting the cart before the horse. They’re skipping a couple critical steps.
When you jump straight into vendor demonstrations you end up wasting time and energy because the current process for vendors only focuses on the technology and neglects other crucial components to success: the people and the unique processes in your factory.
