Aberdeen Publishes New Report Highlighting the Use of Operational Intelligence in Manufacturing

BOSTON, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Mar 09, 2011 -- A new report by Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE: HHS), " Operational Intelligence: Aligning Plant and Corporate IT" reveals how the most mature companies unlock the value of real-time manufacturing data by bringing together corporate and plant IT environments with new technology enablers and system architectures.

For the purposes of this study, Aberdeen has evaluated and classified manufacturers based on four key criteria. Top performers are performing at the following levels:

  • 94% Success with New Product Introductions

  • 94% Complete and On-Time Shipments

  • 89% Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE)

  • +6% Operating Margin vs. Corporate Plan

The role and responsibilities of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) has changed immensely over the past decade. New tools sets, architectures, and standards have allowed IT organizations to have a much more collaborative environment between IT and many Line of Business (LOB) executives. "Unfortunately, in many cases, these changes have not made it all the way down to the shop floor," explains Matthew Littlefield, senior research analyst, Aberdeen. "On the upside, the number one organizational change companies are planning on making over the next 12 months is creating collaboration between IT and manufacturing organizations." Indeed, many companies are at a major cross road regarding the deployment of software in manufacturing and the decisions they make today will greatly impact the firm for years to come. Readers can use this report to understand the lessons learned from the top performers while avoiding the pain points and obstacles encountered by their peers.
