Smart Factory Transformations

CREAN pushes Integration to the next level.  CREAN integrates not just Technology Systems, but integrates People, Processes and Technology.  Doing that requires Outstanding People, Leading Edge Technology, and Modern, Flexible Process methods that deliver faster, establish competitive cost objectives, and benchmarks game-changing performance.

What needs to happen to fully Integrate People, Process, and Technology™
  • Commitment to continuous learning ensures employee skills which drive future success (Skills & Mindset)
  • Working together internally and with suppliers is critical to controlling outcomes (Supplier Collaboration)
  • Transparency, involvement, and adaptation will capture your customers’ attention (Customer Connectivity)
  • The seven flows always reign supreme through integrated solution (Seven Flows)
  • To meet demand for rapid delivery and turns, quality must improve, both of which reduce cost (Quality/Delivery/Cost)
  • Real-time information systems make People, Processes and Technology more efficient and agile. Making decisions based on information versus just data is far more productive and effective (Information & Control)
  • Digital Transformation is all about real-time data collection, analytics, and information flow to every team member.  A simple implementation of well-thought-out sensors delivers rapid improvements.  Take things step-by-step assuring success at each level of improvement to achieve assured performance improvements with selected automation, predictive maintenance, and self-prioritizing operations.
  • Drop in the SFOS (Smart Factory Operating System)™ and Smart Rack / Smart Bench™ WIP Tracking System and you will have instant real-time Visibility, Insight, & Acceleration™ using an AI Algorithm customized to your operation that improves predictable on-time deliveries, prioritizes work for maximum operational efficiency, and provides your shop floor leaders actionable data-driven insights to improve operational effectiveness.  No ERP yet?  No problem, Crean’s VIAAI Smart Rack & Bench™ gives growing companies just what they need to scale fast and effectively using a light-weight solution.
