Problem Statement

Small to Medium companies are very skeptical if Digital Technologies can drive value. Specifically, there are two issues: a. they say that the cost and effort of technology far outweigh the benefits they deliver and b. They are also unsure of where to start.


Project Goal

Design and build a simple but unique solution called the “Win the Hour (WTH) that enables SME’s to drive productivity improvements by  managing their daily productivity performance on an hourly basis. Specifically, demonstrate improvement of 5-7% of productivity gains at CAAT and/or SME facilities.

Technical Approach

    • By demonstrating the full capabilities of the CESMII platform including the SM Marketplace, SM innovation platform and the SM profiles in CT, the project could serve as the most relevant and complete reference-site for CESMII to expand the coverage and adoption of its platfor
