Yet executives leading digital transformations of global enterprises with multiple plants face major challenges:

• Thousands of complex machines, devices, and systems that require planning and integration, along with

• Thousands of managers and frontline associates who need new digital skills, and

• Demanding customers and increasingly unpredictable markets. 

 

Fortunately, Performance Solutions by Milliken (PSbyM) has a long history of helping clients achieve operational excellence — and has expanded its management system to include principles for digital transformation.

Its products are marketed and distributed in more than 85 countries, and manufactured in 15 facilities around the globe. Performance Solutions by Milliken (PSbyM) initially engaged with the company at two of its plants to build a performance system and to “model” the transformation.
