Manufacturing: discover the Paragon partnership

From the assembly line to lean manufacturing, the implementation of innovative solutions has led the manufacturing industry to advance. The next breakthrough in the manufacturing industry will be driven by the digital transformation of the shop floor.

Manufacturing is the core activity for the economic development of many countries and regions and is experiencing deep and ongoing transformations to become increasingly efficient, meet growing demands and generate positive experiences for clients.

This industry is heavily impacted by the instability of economies and, at the same time, needs to produce with more quality and better deliveries, investing in advanced technology resources that help reducing costs and improving profitability.

As we can see, this is a complex equation and where digital transformation tools such as the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence and the digital twin have fundamental contributions to make.

If few market segments are as impacted, at the same time, by economic and social realities and by expectations as the manufacturing industry, it is also one of the most benefited by the great mass of data generated in the countless phases of the production chain.

This is valuable data for understanding performance levels, bottlenecks that hinder production growth or cost optimization, foreseeing opportunities and risks and, therefore, generating fundamental assessments to make crucial decisions.

On the other hand, it is necessary to gather this data using a structured methodology, so that it is read correctly, both individually and in an integrated manner with the factory production to reach safe results.  

How can your company reach this level of excellence in the study of data? Mathematical data modeling and digital twin are the alternatives.

Let’s show the value that the PARAGON CONSULTING will add to your decisions towards growth!

Challenges in the retail industry

How we solve your problem

The PARAGON team is formed by experts in decision-making tools. Said tools include statistical, modeling, management and data visualization software and methodologies. We use the most modern simulation, optimization, scheduling and data visualization technologies. Our main goal is to offer security for decision making, presenting results and simple alternatives for complex problems that help reaching the productivity and profitability targets through cost reduction and investment optimization.

Digital Transformation in Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 is the reality and future of manufacturing, determining a segment where the speed of service and the lowest possible level of non-compliance must go hand in hand, as they are essential to remain competitive.

A manufacturing process begins long before the shop floor, in the purchase scheduling, investing in machinery, hiring personnel and choosing management methods.

All these variables need to ensure that the production chain works as accurately as possible. At the end of it, there are logistics and client resources waiting, delays, and failures can cost sales.

Thus, the Industry 4.0 concept is based on the introduction of digitalization in the plant activity, incorporating several innovations that allow the generation and extraction of as much information as possible about the performance of each process.

Mathematical modeling with simulation allows to create a large data ecosystem where we can ask all the necessary questions and test the most varied scenarios before defining which conditions are ideal for increasing productivity.

PARAGON offers these solutions, which represent a major advance in the way of interpreting data and making decisions with the greatest degree of assertiveness possible.

Data on the shop floor operation, logistics strategies, product quality for the consumer, sales and brand receptivity is just a few of the many that need to be analyzed globally for each business vision to benefit from solutions.

Investments in a manufacturing company are high and if the results fall short of expectations, they can result in losses that the company will take a long time to resolve.

Sustainable manufacturing

The sustainability concept has long ceased to be an issue restricted to environmental defense agencies or organized civil groups. Being sustainable has also become an essential condition for businesses to be more profitable and brands to be more admired.

Sustainability has expanded its importance to the full economy, particularly in industries where the use and disposal of materials, chemicals and resources, such as energy and water, are critical issues.

Adopting a sustainable manufacturing is becoming a fundamental condition to negotiate with companies and governments of many countries and enhance the brand image before clients. There are many measures and they vary according to the business profile, size and capital available to them.

But how to define a sustainability plan? The answer is simple: a lot of information collected through digital transformation capabilities and a tool to use large volumes of data for scenario analysis.

It will allow historical data from traditional processes to be compared with sustainability targets and to understand the reach that the company can have in the strategies.

A good example is creating a digital scenario with the investment in solar energy and evaluating all the impacts it will cause in the medium and long term regarding energy savings, purchase of equipment and other factors.

The digital twin technology offered by PARAGON allows to compare scenarios, add new elements and simulate results under different conditions to arrive at a solution that combines profitability and environmental awareness – a fundamental value in today’s societies.
