While the world’s most giant factories use complicated systems to optimize efficiency, small and midsize manufacturers often mix the different machine makes models and ages with information in silos that don’t connect. It leaves teams to struggle with manual data entry and bring out fires. Manufacturers commonly lose more than 20 percent of production time as a result, at the cost of over $3 trillion in waste each year.
