MINNETONKA, Minn.--()--Savigent Software, Inc., the Minnetonka-based company specializing in event-driven manufacturing operations management software, announced today that it has published a new brief focused on the application of workflow automation in the manufacturing environment to drive operational intelligence.
“Leveraging Workflow Automation to Drive Operational Intelligence”
The three-part brief includes thought-provoking research titled, “The Manufacturing Performance Dilema, Part 2: From Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence to Operations Intelligence” by Gartner analysts Simon Jacobson and Leif Eriksen. Their research highlights the “demand for efficient and effective tools and technologies” that manufacturers need to make more effective and accurate decisions. “As companies seek to be more prescriptive and predictive in manufacturing, the need becomes greater for advanced capabilities to close the feedback loop of corporate performance back to the plant level to drive the right behaviors.”
The brief also provides a practical understanding of workflow automation and an introduction to Savigent’s industry-leading software, Catalyst Workflow™. David Wicker, Savigent Software CEO, remarked, “At Savigent, we believe that success in manufacturing requires a systematic approach to identifying and addressing inefficiencies and constraints, and collaborative alignment and action in accordance with the priorities and objectives of the overall manufacturing environment.”
Jay Mellen, Savigent’s executive vice president of business development, said, “In this brief, we show how we are applying workflow automation to drive change within a manufacturing operation – through Incident Management. Incident Management is a powerful workflow-based system available to support continuous improvement efforts in the manufacturing environment. It puts some rigor around the business processes that define how manufacturers respond when problems occur.”
