Gemba Process Innovation for manufacturing

Technology, processes and people working in harmony

The manufacturing sector is facing disruption on a massive scale.

It’s facing transformational environmental and social trends, such as work shortages and lifestyle changes; and significant tech advances such as AI, intelligent edge devices and the e-commerce explosion.

It’s facing an exponential pressure to deliver more. In less time. With fewer resources.

The key to navigating such a rapidly shifting landscape, is to seamlessly combine the digital with the physical. To optimise the flow of information between people, places and ‘things’ on manufacturing frontlines.

And the physical site – or ‘actual place’ – where this all happens, is the Gemba.

Panasonic’s ‘Gemba Process Innovation’ draws on over 100 years of business, technology and services know-how, to help logistics customers streamline their processes across the entire supply chain.

Allowing your staff to focus on what’s important – your business.

Smart factory

The culmination of Industry 4.0

Today’s era of manufacturing automation is creating highly-digitalised and connected manufacturing facilities. More often than ever, we rely on technologies such as cloud computing, IoT, robotics, big data, mobile technology and artificial intelligence to streamline and improve our operations.

Smart factories are the culmination of this technological evolution.

In a smart factory, production processes are flexible and run almost autonomously with the ability to self-correct in real time. As a result, your employees are no longer focused on repetitive, labor-intensive tasks. Instead, they can focus on higher-level work, handling exceptions, managing relationships and creating new revenue streams.
