Brilliant Operations is a digital transformation approach focused on helping manufacturers improve performance, enhance customer outcomes and increase employee engagement.

To do that, manufacturers must gain better visibility of their data start to finish. That means harnessing data collected at the PLC/Instrumentation level, creating intuitive dashboards for plant-floor operators and then relating real-time plant operations to critical business objectives.

Early wins often come from breaking away from paper-based logs, standardizing data from disparate systems, and implementing efficiency insights on a per-production line, pilot basis.

Long-term ROI emerges from improving quality, throughput and uptime metrics; scaling a proof of concept to an enterprise level; earning buy-in from operators; and deploying the right combination of technologies.
