EMC2 publishes a practical guide to help companies succeed in their digital transformation.Even if the industry of the future is characterized today by more and more numerous and evolving technologies, it is now the capacity of women and men to adopt and implement new technologies that conditions the development of business performance. Through 18 new technological solutions illustrated with real-life use cases, this guide provides concrete elements for analysis and delivers the keys that will enable companies to succeed in their digital transformation and take the step towards the Industry of the Future. A diagram in which the human factor plays a predominant role.
Ahe digital transformation and technologies offer incredible opportunities for businesses. Provided, of course, that they are prepared for the challenges of this new industrial revolution. The study "Panorama of technological solutions for the Operator of the Future", launched in 2017 by the EMC2 cluster, shows that the digital transformation is not just a question of the future. (1) and Altran, a world leader in engineering and innovation solutions, is now producing a practical guide for companies. "The Human at the Heart of the Industry of the Future" outlines the issues at stake, takes stock of the available technologies and proposes recommendations to encourage the adoption of innovative technologies by the men and women responsible for carrying out the digital transformation.
Without men, there is no Industry of the Future.
Humans have always been the genius inventor, the driving force behind performance, the accelerator of industrial transformation, but also often the main brake on change and the adoption of new technologies. The companies that will best succeed in the transition to the Industry of the Future will be those that manage to mobilize their employees and place them at the heart of their transformation project.
The fruit of many months of observations, analyses and meetings with digital and industry experts, this guide provides an overview of the solutions and players likely to contribute to the transformation. It is based on three key ideas: Humans must be at once creators of value, architects of transformation and accelerators of innovation.
Concrete case studies and a customizable roadmap
It is not enough to draw up an observation, it is also and above all necessary to draw up solutions. The guide proposes an organizational model based on the use of technological solutions and innovative managerial approaches to put people back at the heart of the Industry of the Future. Through 18 new technological solutions illustrated with real-life use cases, it explains how to facilitate access to knowledge and accelerate experiences, exploit technology to increase the physical, sensory and cognitive capacities of women and men, and foster and boost motivation, innovation and commitment.
The guide lays the foundations of a roadmap that each company can adapt to its own constraints and the challenges of its business. For them, it is a question of choosing the managerial solutions that are likely to boost the motivation, innovation and commitment of employees and deciding who should be involved in the transformation project, internal or external resources, and according to what timetable.
Focus on the place of women in industry
Clémentine Gallet, President of the Coriolis Group, administrator of the EMC2 cluster and champion of the French Fab, prefaced this guide by insisting, certainly, on the place of women in the Industry of the Future, but more broadly on the opening of the industry's doors to new multidisciplinary skills.
