Manufacturing technology - move from reactive to proactive operations

The manufacturing industry is continually evolving. Innovation is at the heart of manufacturing and creates continued disruption across the industry.

The latest wave of innovation in manufacturing technology, known as Industry 4.0, is the data and connected revolution. Where we once imagined a future with factories focused on the digital, robot-driven production floors, reality has transcended the factory floor to include connected employees, processes, machines, data and customers.

Incremental Group helps manufacturers leverage and exploit today’s Microsoft manufacturing technology to create improvements in their business, one step at a time. We help our manufacturing and supply chain customers to drive automation and reduce downtime using IoT intelligence across any manufacturing process – discrete, lean, process and mixed-mode, and to perform production planning in real-time.

No matter how far away you feel from the 4th Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0 Incremental Group works to make sure you don’t get left behind.

Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management, formerly called Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations/Dynamics AX, is Microsoft’s supply chain application for operations leaders in medium to large manufacturing organisations.

Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management supports manufacturing and supply chain processes and gives operations leaders predictive insights and intelligence across planning, production, stock, warehouse and transportation management to maximise operational efficiency, product quality and profitability.

Increase sales orders accuracy – enable increased precision in ordering the right parts and materials and help the manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution channels to anticipate future work.

Enhance inventory management – see accurately what inventory they have and where it is, helping to avoid excess ordering or shrinkage.

Identify quality or production issues early – business insights help operations leaders see in real-time when a specific production line is not performing correctly or when parts and materials from a vendor are failing at higher-than-expected rates.

Accurately predict production and warehousing needs – historical and real-time data unifies to provide better forecasting, which allows production and warehousing teams to allocate resources and optimise operations as needed.

Reduce delays – better planning and quality reduces the risk of delays, helping to avoid overage costs like overtime and rush shipping.

Intelligence - Data and AI

We provide advanced data services, including practical applications of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to enable your organisation to deliver a competitive advantage.

Incremental can help you to extract business value from your data from assisting with foundational data practices all the way to advanced descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analysis.

We also support businesses with data visualisation using Power BI.

Harness the power of Azure

We take manufacturer’s on a journey to the cloud, harnessing the power of Microsoft Azure, providing a flexible and scalable infrastructure and access to the many services Azure offers. Azure offers a wide range of IoT and AI services for any scenario and enterprise-grade AI infrastructure that runs AI workloads anywhere at scale.

We realise that not everyone is ready to move everything to the cloud. We advise manufacturers where to start and take them on a journey to the cloud that meets their specific business requirements. Some of our cloud services include:

Readiness assessment – we help identify what parts of your business are ready to move to the cloud, what applications and workloads would benefit and a plan for future migrations.

Infrastructure migration – we transition you from on-premises infrastructure to a cloud or hybrid model using Azure.

Application migration – we migrate your bespoke applications to a cloud or hybrid model.

Support and optimise – we keep your system performing to the standards you need by providing you with scalable and secure infrastructure.

Cloud Readiness Assessment

Our Cloud Readiness Assessment provides organisations with the answers and support to help determine and prioritise the migration of IT workloads to the Cloud. We review the current IT infrastructure and support organisations future business plans whilst assessing the impact they have on the IT infrastructure.
