When it comes to digital transformation, there are many things we can explore. The questions circling around its definition, its importance, and its benefits are no longer the hype. It has come for us to think more advanced, in a more strategic and prospective point of views: What technology we can leverage on? How to implement and deploy this technology? Will there be challenges when we embark on this digital transformation journey? What are the challenges and how to tackle them?

Manufacturing is one of the sectors that will be the spotlight when we think of “possible areas of digital transformation”. As we all know, manufacturing industry highly relies on technologies for its every day business. There are a lot of technologies involved in every chain of its processes. Industry leaders and experts coming from manufacturing must look for a potential technology to transform the way they do business, to remove or minimize all manual processes as much as they can. This endeavour, is to embarking on the digital transformation journey for manufacturing.

With this backdrop, we are honoured to take part in a seminar spotlighting the challenges in digital transformation for manufacturing industry. Organized and supported by Jedi Solutions and Indosat, this event serves as a compass for industry stakeholders amidst the digital transformation tumult.

As a solution provider and digital transformation tool, we took part in this seminar – helping to shed the light for those who are still “lost” on their digital transformation journey.

The Event with Jedi Solutions and Indosat

The event was held on April 26th, 2024, taking place at PrimeBiz Hotel Cikarang – Indonesia.

Digital Transformation Challenges for Manufacturing Industry

The manufacturing industry faces a myriad of challenges in navigating the complex landscape of digital transformation. One significant hurdle is the integration of new technologies into existing processes and infrastructure. Many manufacturing facilities operate legacy systems that may not easily accommodate digital upgrades, requiring extensive retooling and investment. Furthermore, the sheer volume of data generated by digital processes presents challenges in terms of storage, analysis, and deriving actionable insights. While automation offers significant opportunities for improving efficiency, productivity, and quality in manufacturing, overcoming these challenges requires strategic planning, investment, and collaboration between technology providers, manufacturers, and other stakeholders.

Potential Areas to Implement Automation for HR and GA Functions

Potential areas to implement automation for Human Resources (HR) and General Administration (GA) functions encompass a wide array of tasks ripe for streamlining and efficiency enhancement. From candidate sourcing and recruitment processes to onboarding, payroll management, and performance evaluations, automation holds promise in revolutionizing these operations. Additionally, automation can facilitate employee record maintenance, leave management, and compliance adherence, thus reducing human error and ensuring regulatory requirements are met consistently.

In General Administration, functions such as inventory management, facility maintenance scheduling, and vendor management could benefit significantly from automation, leading to cost savings and smoother operations. By leveraging technologies like AI, machine learning, and robotic process automation (RPA), organizations can unlock immense potential for optimizing HR and GA functions, allowing personnel to focus on strategic initiatives and fostering a more agile and competitive business environment.

Gleematic AI as Solution: Introducing Autonomous Automation

Gleematic team, led by Benarivo Abdullah, had the opportunity to present on the topic “Transforming Operations in Manufacturing Industry with Automation”.

Gleematic, as an innovative solution, introduces the concept of “Autonomous Automation” promising significant changes in manufacturing industry operations.

“Autonomous Automation” is a concept where automation processes not only automate predetermined tasks but also have the ability to learn, adapt, and make decisions independently based on recognized patterns or received inputs. In other words, the automation system not only executes programmed instructions but also can adjust to changes in the environment or business needs without constant human intervention. This concept aims to enhance flexibility, efficiency, and accuracy in automated operations.

This concept not only brings automation to existing processes but also introduces a new dimension that allows systems to learn and develop independently. With this approach, Gleematic aims to provide a more adaptive, efficient, and effective solution for the manufacturing industry in facing digital transformation challenges. The opportunity for this presentation provided a platform for the Gleematic team to share knowledge and experiences.

Showcasing Gleematic

Gleematic team set up a mini-booth to allow seminar attendees to get to know Gleematic up close. The team enthusiastically provided live demonstrations of how Gleematic can improve operational efficiency, particularly in HR and GA functions. The team also presented case studies and concrete examples of how Gleematic, as a solution, has transformed the way business operations are conducted across various industries, especially manufacturing. By providing in-depth explanations of Gleematic’s key features and benefits, the team aimed to ensure that visitors understand the significant potential of this automation solution.
