Schneider Electric surveyed over 400 worldwide machine builders and factory end users in 2015. The questions they answered all centered around what their machines and plants would need to look like in 2020 if their businesses were to sustain growth and boost productivity. Their feedback has shaped (and will continue to shape) Schneider Electric digitized solution investments.
Key requirements identified included:
- Tools that could accommodate a younger and less experienced workforce
- A need for simpler integration through open software connectivity and more open field buses
- A need for whole lifecycle support of the products they purchase
