Factory Modernisation Assessment

Factory Modernisation Assessment

Clevvi offers a Factory Modernisation Assessment, which involves a high-level assessment of factory processes and management applications resulting in an actionable report highlighting current gaps, potential uplift paths and high-level implementation roadmap. This assessment leverages Clevvi’s decades of experience using technology to streamline and improve manufacturing businesses, as well as Clevvi’s wide exposure to the industrial technology landscape through a wide variety of project work and a detailed understanding of industry trends through deep engagement with partners such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Inductive Automation (makers of Ignition SCADA) and Infor (makers of the “M3” manufacturing-specialised ERP). 

Clevvi's experienced Factory Technology Consultants conduct a factory floor walk through with your technology and operations teams, to review your factory technology, understand your operational challenges and requirements, then provide recommendations to close potential gaps. Clevvi will provide you with a tailored report highlighting possible uplift paths to improving operating margin and factory productivity, while increasing quality, safety, and sustainability is prepared and shared back with you, including benchmarking to other Australian manufacturers.
