Manufacturers can create the Digital Twin Supply Chain, a digital representation of the physical supply chain that will allow them to anticipate and proactively overcome disruptions, before they cause major problems. In the event of a global disruption, manufacturers can analyze the impact both upstream and downstream and run simulations and model scenarios on a large scale to determine the best solution. They can then automate this response.

Build and innovate as you grow

Recent research by McKinsey indicates that a lack of funding remains the biggest hindrance to the challenges facing all Industry 4.0 initiatives. That’s why HSO is so excited about the modular framework for Microsoft Cloud for Manufacturing, where manufacturers can start small and build as they go. Few companies have the budget or infrastructure to “rip and replace,” which is why the solution is designed to give them the flexibility and control they so desperately need.
