Have you begun your digital transformation?
We haven't started our digital journey yet.
We are in the process of defining our digital transformation strategy
We have initiated several pilot projects to explore the benefits of digitalization
We have created a digital transformation roadmap that supports our current business objectives
Which of the following best describes the level of automation at your organization?
We are attempting to connect multiple systems and self-built applications in a patchwork fashion and discussing ways to reduce manual processes.
Islands of automation:
We have systems in place but lack a "single version of the truth" and the ability to integrate with all of our systems, including legacy.
Our systems are mostly integrated across multiple divisions.
We are comprehensively integrated for automation and are seeing meaningful business results across our enterprise, enabling a "single version of truth".
What is the primary challenge your operations groups face?
We have late and error-prone data due to manual information gathering.
Planned activities are interrupted with unplanned periods of production/operations downtime.
Need access to validated data to assist in decisions to continuously improve engineering, maintenance, and operations.
Need for Analytics:
We are automated but lack advanced-level, business integration tools and analytics.
Which best describes the current state of your operational processes?
Some processes are documented/implemented, however there are multiple where additional processes need to be developed/implemented.
Processes are mostly documented/implemented.
Some analytics are available where processes are measured and tied to KPIs (Key Performance Indicators).
Processes are documented/implemented and continuously optimized/reimplemented.
How would you describe access to data within your organization?
Our engineering, operations, and performance data is not centrally located.
We have some standards for tagging and organizing stored engineering, operations, and performance data.
Teams quickly locate contextualized data in a standard data format.
The entire enterprise access to organized, contextualized data and analytics as required.
Is the data in your systems connected, consolidated, and contextualized with the physical assets?
Not effective / we do not have effective instrumentation/sensors on our physical assets; data is not complete enough to monitor activities.
Instrumentation / sensoring is completed but data is not easily accessible.
Data is collected from all physical assets in a centralized easily accessible system however all work teams do not have access to their job-appropriate information.
We have a fully integrated hub of centralized operations data. Everyone on the team has job-appropriate access to operational information.
How do you measure the condition of your physical assets?
Our workforce understands the status of our equipment and the tasks required to maintain it.
We have some data that shows how often our key assets fail and what the business consequences are but lack the ability to sufficiently analyze how to improve the processes.
We have established an integrated process that records deviations in performance and detects production problems across operations.
We have systems that capture and record operations and maintenance data on our key assets, combining it with smart analytics to mostly eliminate unplanned downtown.
Which stage of workforce connectivity best describes your operation?
Some information is shared and some collaboration is occurring. Some of the systems in place are interconnected.
Most information and procedures are available through mobile devices/remote access. Collaboration occurring at team level.
Workforce uses mobile devices. Remote data visibility outside of production and/or operations allows for cross-department collaboration.
Real-time data visibility throughout the enterprise. Workforce mobility contributes to seamless, predictive, actionable insights.
What solutions are your organization using to enable a connected workforce?
Worker collaboration tools [Providing knowledge sharing and collaboration to connected workers]
Worker collaboration + asset visualization tools [Cloud based tools that can be used across desktop and mobile devices.]
Worker collaboration tools + asset visualization tools, + access to real-time data [Access to real-time and historical data on any device]
Worker collaboration tools + asset visualization tools + access to real-time data, + remote worker analytics
None of the above
What best describes your timing for investing in digital transformation?
What major projects do you have happening in the next 12+ months?
Modernization of existing infrastructure
All of the above
