Digital Transformation

Where are the opportunities for digital transformation for my organization? Where should I start? Where are opportunities and threats? How do I ensure that my employees gain the right knowledge and expertise?

These are questions many companies and organizations are grappling with. Symbol specializes in supporting digital transformation in the operational process and training employees in it.

The importance of digital transformation

Digital transformation is in full swing. Every organization faces this transformation to a greater or lesser extent. New digital techniques are also making their appearance within operations management and continuous improvement. Consider the use of Digital Work Instructions, Big Data, Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Process Mining, Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

If your organization is looking to deploy digital techniques within operations management explore the possibilities with one of our digital experts. They understand the challenges facing modern businesses and offer concrete solutions for digital transformation.

Expertise in digital transformation

At Symbol, we specialize in applying (new) digital techniques in the areas of operations management and problem solving. Symbol is an ambassador within the FME network. At the same time, we have also made choices in what not to do. Indeed, the field of digitization is so vast that no single party is able to be knowledgeable about everything. Symbol therefore works within the FME network with a large group of ambassadors. These are digital experts, each with a distinct area of focus. Together we are able to make any organization in the Netherlands ready for the future.

Building blocks for digital transformation

Taking a step towards digital transformation? Symbol specializes in the following building blocks that contribute to digital transformation.

Digital Strategy & Data Management


Our approach begins with a establishing a digital strategy, the foundation upon which any successful transformation rests. Together with the management team and (digital) experts in your organization, we map the current situation and possibilities.

‘Data’ is the source upon which every digital technology is grafted. Data management is therefore always part of the digital transformation strategy. Symbol maps what data is already available and how data is accessed. We are also looking at opportunities to obtain data from machines and processes that is not currently available.

Data Insight & Process Performance


This phase is all about data processing and visualization. A Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) provides data exchange between the ERP system and production.

Digital work instructions and advanced (PowerBI) dashboards provide clarity and insight. Workflows and digital forms are built to provide analysis and reporting, and streamline information.

Process optimization & Advanced Problem solving


This phase is all about data processing and interpretation and optimization. Our digital experts apply techniques such as Process Mining and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to optimize logistics processes.

Our Master Black Belts apply Predictive analytics to Advanced Problem Solving. Predictive analytics is a form of process analysis that uses machine learning to generate a predictive model based on big data. Where normal regression models are no longer adequate, Minitab offers additional techniques based on CART, Random Forests, TreeNet and MARS to analyze big data.
