Closing the Skills Gap in Manufacturing with Microsoft 365
The digital transformation is forcing manufacturers to redefine the roles, skills, and tools that transform how they work. The manufacturing industry is being transformed by the rise in new digital industrial technology, known as Industry 4.0. New technologies are changing every stage of production, increasing productivity, optimizing operations, and unlocking new areas of growth. In manufacturing, Firstline Workers are the employees who deliver products and materials, drive product quality, and keep critical equipment running. To help manufacturers with their digital transformation, we’re enabling new ways to work with Microsoft 365 for Firstline Workers to learn, communicate, and collaborate more effectively.
Solutions in Microsoft 365 that enable Firstline Workers to learn, communicate, and collaborate include:
- Microsoft Teams and SharePoint Online: Manufacturers can securely centralize training efforts, easily distribute on boarding and training materials, and connect all levels of the organization to find and share best practices.
- Microsoft Stream: Organizations can deliver dynamic, role-based content and video to increase engagement and retention of training programs and support peer-to-peer information sharing.
- Microsoft Flow and PowerApps: These services help to digitize everyday activities, such as documentation during quality assurance, data capture, and inventory management, helping reduce costs and free up time for Firstline Workers to focus on higher value activities.
Leading manufacturers choose Microsoft 365 to prepare, equip, and empower their employees at all levels.
