Manufacturing’s storyline has been told in a simple way for the longest time. Manufacturers (the good guys) had to deal with lots of adversaries on the plant floor, but the biggest archrival was known as “downtime.” Downtime is the ultimate antagonist of manufacturing. It is the kryptonite that can creep into a factory and cause lines to shut down cells, stop production, and ultimately cause a hit to the bottom line. Downtime can take many forms – from machines breaking down, to virus-infecting factory equipment, to human error.
