outputs from the workshops capture the critical inputs needed by each discipline within the organization to provide an accurate enterprise assessment of changes going forward.
➤ Digital Enterprise Foundations: Navigating the Digital Thread and Digital Twin
The Digital Twin is the data and intelligence that represents the configuration (structure and interrelated conditions) of a physical item of any type at any point in its lifecycle.
The Digital Thread refers to the processes and tools used for communicating data through a connected flow of an asset’s information and datasets throughout a product‘s lifecycle. The Digital Thread must enable efficient capture and sharing of product data downstream for effective manufacturing and supply chain consumption.
This workshop will identify the datasets that make up the digital twin. Students will understand how and why to centralize their data into single source(s) of truth, providing all value stream elements with access to single sources of data. Students will also learn the importance of defining clear and concise business processes that incorporate business best practices that bring data integrity to the right people at the right time to enable robust decisions for the business.
➤ From Concept to Launch: Mastering the New Product Introduction Process
Innovation is essential for business growth and competitiveness. Delivering innovation requires a robust development process that navigates an organization from concept through to service and decommissioning requirement validation/verification. Success requires process and decision governance, adequate risk management and mitigation, and increased confidence throughout the lifecycle phases.
This educational workshop reviews these elements and explores how the CM2 standard is critical for effective portfolio management and is the foundational delivery mechanism to deliver innovation to market effectively. Learn how flexible control mechanisms can be defined to fit the iterative needs of the early development phases while transitioning to formal control of various artifacts and datasets as the innovation begins to enter production.
➤ Contracting for Success: Achieving Optimal Outcomes in Supply Chain Management
Having a robust enterprise process for managing change is a crucial component for organizations seeking to optimize their procurement processes and adapt to evolving market conditions. Procurement change management focuses on implementing, analyzing, and managing changes within the procurement function while fostering stakeholder engagement and minimizing operational disruptions.
This workshop will explore the closed loop change process and expand the lens from an engineering to an enterprise viewpoint to translate industry standard best practices to enable the business to manage sustaining change across the business at an enterprise level. Students will learn about the foundational elements of the business process, key roles and responsibilities and ensuring the right people are engaged at the right time for optimal sustainment of our extended enterprise with a supply chain focus. Prioritization across the business and resource allocation to support supply chain initiatives is explored.
➤ Optimizing Manufacturing and Service Execution for Improved Customer Satisfaction
Customer satisfaction requires that all wants and needs are captured by requirements and traced throughout the phases of development and into sustainment. Collaborative lifecycle deep dives can identify bottlenecks, gaps, and other opportunities in the handoffs of data from function to function. Understanding the As-Is state independent of documented business processes will uncover the hidden factories and true ways of working. Clearly defined steps with clear roles and responsibilities can be understood, defined, and agreed upon.
This activity will break silos through end-to-end process interdependency exploration. Team members will collectively break down complex or unclear business processes into smaller sequential steps. This activity will increase understanding of the sequence of functional tasks, interdependencies and organizational standards for heads-down time and calendar durations that lead to more accurately defined change effectivity dates for clear communication to the manufacturing, operations and service domains to prepare and manage physical inventory.
➤ From Evaluation to Execution: Streamlining Enterprise Change Assessment Processes
Many organizations are unable to definitively know if their valuable resources are working on the right things at the right time. Efficient and effective execution of change throughout the organization is dependent on a total understanding of change impact. Organizations consumed with intervention and rework often are lacking a thorough enterprise change assessment in advance of task execution. A standardized methodology for understanding of the work to be accomplished and the people affected by a change can facilitate an accurate apples-to-apples comparison for risk assessment and business prioritization.
This educational workshop will facilitate across functional understanding of how to conduct a consistent enterprise change assessment across teams and business units. Students will learn how to define functional standards to assess the work to be accomplished, estimate the cost for each task, and develop an accurate impact analysis for robust business decisions.
