Digital transformation

Taking your industrial operations to the next level

To be effective and sustainable, your digital transformation strategy needs to be holistic. No matter how much we want to see technology as the solution to our problems, we need to consider people, processes and equipment too.

Your site digital transformation needs to go beyond technology to succeed

Digital Transformation - Life Cycle Engineering

Seventy percent of digital transformation projects don’t achieve their goals. Think that’s scary? It gets worse – just consider the implications for an organization: 

  • Expensive investments in new technology that doesn’t deliver the expected reductions in operating and maintenance costs or increases in uptime
  • Stagnant productivity and persistent challenges in optimizing processes and workflow management
  • Poor employee buy-in resulting in disengagement and turnover

Technology won’t help you achieve digital transformation and reach your goals unless you’ve done the foundational work. That’s where we come in.

Technology is a tool – not a solution – for digital manufacturing and operations

Technology is a neutral accelerator. It can take you down a path quickly, so you need to plan your route and understand why and how you’re taking the trip. Having a great asset management strategy in place puts you in the driver’s seat and allows you to harness the power of digital manufacturing and operations.  To succeed, you need to understand the root causes of your asset failures. With a risk-based asset management (RBAM) strategy, you’ll get the most out of your physical assets while preserving their capital value, optimize your maintenance schedule for increased asset uptime, and meet production specs.

Because your equipment's going to need maintenance to avoid breakdown.

It’s not a matter of if – it’s when. We’ll help you identify your most critical assets and the risk they pose to your bottom line in the event of a major failure, and develop a strategy to cover the life cycle of your assets.

Your trusted partner in digital transformation

Why trust us to help in your digital transformation? Because industrial asset management and optimization is at our core. We don’t have a horse in this race – we’re not selling hardware or software solutions – so you can trust that we’ll help you design a system around what you need, not what we need to sell. 

Whether you’re launching a new facility or preparing an existing operation, we’ll help you lay the groundwork for a successful digital operation.

When you consider physical assets, people, processes and technology – the ‘whole picture’ – we call that a smart culture. We’ve curated an online system to support these efforts: the LCEsmartr Playbook, an online operational management system complete with standard work, training, practitioner tools, and management dashboards to support your asset management and reliability program. 

Learn more about the LCEsmartr Playbook here.

We’ll start where you are, assessing your current systems and identifying opportunities and gaps. From there, we’ll work with you to develop the necessary processes and capabilities to create a measurable, robust asset management plan. We’ll also use the LCEsmartr Playbook to communicate, train and track progress to your plan, setting the stage for a sustainable program. With this unique approach, we’ll help you create a culture of continuous improvement – because once you have a reliability-based approach, you’ll find the time your team’s been using to fight fires can now be dedicated to improvement. You’ll create a loop of continued optimization!
