The e-meeting "Ricostruzione Industria" took place on Thursday May 7, 2020 and it was organized by Fortune Italia in collaboration with Hermes Reply. There has been talk of digitization applied to industrial sectors in reference to the Coronavirus emergency, phase 2 of coexistence with the virus and phase 3 called the new normal. The main topics discussed were business continuity, the sustainability of new production processes and the importance of humans.
The uncertainty and vulnerability generated by the Covid-19 emergency have led to a total rethink of production and new negative impact factors. The organizations have found themselves having to manage a phase of immediate response to the crisis and now they have to think and design a restart towards a new normal.
Massimiliano Oddi, partner of Hermes Reply in his speech, has highlighted how the first comerstone of the restart must be the safety and protection of employees who represent the most important asset of each company. It will also be necessary to provide a review of the processes that in the industrial field can be declined in the supervision and management of plants or production lines. In addition it will also be necessary a revision of the supply chain management models that will have to be increasingly adapted to sudden changes in demand. The governance of safety stocks as well as the changing sales channels are other central issues. Finally, the adoption of a harmonized technology platform is essential in order to create a connected virtuous ecosystem in which the platform becomes a data collector that can bring value to the whole company if properly processed.
