The industry globalization that has taken place over the past decades has forced manufacturers and utility providers to strive for continuous improvement. Operational excellence has become the key theme for the manufacturing industry. For most best-in-class” manufacturers, this means a continuous focus on cost reduction and improvement of product quality and throughput time.
Most manufacturers have applied methods such as lean manufacturing and Six Sigma. Manufacturing IT solutions can support such continuous improvement programs or provide a complementary way of improving performance by increasing visibility of plant performance. These manufacturing IT systems are often complex and require a convergence of skills and knowledge that often don’t exist within the manufacturer’s internal teams. Grantek’s manufacturing IT services provides leadership, consulting, and implementation for the myriad of technologies and standards.

Business-driven Manufacturing Solutions Approach
Grantek’s approach is based on the belief that manufacturing IT solutions are only an enabler, and not a goal in itself. An MES/MOM solution should contribute to a manufacturer’s main business goals, which most of the time are about achieving operational excellence. This approach enables our specialized manufacturing IT consultants to have a deep and wide domain knowledge and experience in manufacturing IT specifically, rather than just IT. We see manufacturing information technology as one of the four domains that play a part in the realization of a manufacturing business strategy. The other critical areas are business processes, organizational infrastructure, and a skilled workforce.
