Problem Statement: Why is Digital Transformation (DX) in Japan’s manufacturing industry not progressing? The challenge is to cultivate DX culture and develop human resources.
The wave of Industry 4.0 (Fourth Industrial Revolution), which was born in Germany in 2011, greatly shook the manufacturing industry in Japan. Many companies in Japan have been calling for "DX (digital transformation) in the manufacturing industry and have set up DX promotion departments and managers to make investments. DX is a strategic initiative that involves the adoption and integration of digital technologies to drive organizational growth, improve operations, and deliver enhanced value to customers.
However, many companies face obstacles in cultivating a DX culture and developing human resources for effective implementation. The lack of alignment in mindset and culture between top management and business departments is identified as a major internal barrier. A true DX requires in-house capabilities, highlighting the importance of developing internal leaders who can design business processes across departments. Macnica, a key player in the DX field aim to advocate for the use of the latest technology platform low-code tools to involve individuals without coding knowledge in projects, fostering collaboration between business and IT departments.
Digital Transformation (DX) team is crucial in the modern business landscape to enhance business processes, improve efficiency, and foster innovation.
Macnica’s vision focuses on an "experience-first" approach, encouraging trial and error to address challenges in manufacturing sites. The company believes that in-house initiatives are crucial for the success of DX, allowing for greater speed, flexibility, and response to site-specific needs. Macnica recently introduced its Digital Synergy Factory-low-code development support service as a means to materialize its vision and accelerate manufacturing DX support services. The company has also welcomed a knowledgeable partner to further enhance its efforts in this domain.
Macnica’s decision to collaborates with its partner, Orangeleaf from Malaysia – the leading low-code expert, to provide comprehensive Digital Transformation (DX) consulting using low-code technology. Having successfully implemented over 100 DX projects in manufacturing, insurance, and retail across Europe, Singapore, and Malaysia, Orangeleaf Consulting focus is on empowering clients to drive their DX initiatives without lock-in contract. The support spans from long-term planning to agile application development, including information on cutting-edge technologies. Macnica and Orangeleaf aim to contribute to the advancement of DX in the Japanese manufacturing industry by leveraging best practices and offering holistic assistance in consulting, human resource development, and organizational building.
Orangeleaf impressed the "experience-first" using low-code tools with Macnica Employees
Macnica had a challenge in their semiconductor business – it used to take 15 minutes for sales people to set delivery dates for certain customers using a mix of data from ERP and Excel. To solve this, Macnica teamed up with Orangeleaf to create a simple app using low-code technology. The amazing part? The whole process, from planning to using the improved system, only took 14 hours! Now, instead of 15 minutes each time, they get things done in just seconds. It worked so well that now more ideas for improving their business keep popping up.
