Implementing Smart Manufacturing is a complex undertaking that most companies are doing for the first time. Instead of going it alone and learning from your mistakes, we can provide a part-time (or fractional) resource who can be a guide for your journey.
VDI Smart Manufacturing Coaches bring years of deep personal experience to their roles as confidants, educators, and mentors. An invaluable addition to any team, you coach cares less about building and executing programs and more about reviewing your progress, plans, and strategies.
A VDI coach is an extended member of your team whose objective is to ensure your success.
Get access to a coach who is helping to define Smart Manufacturing for the USA. Our team includes members who have served executive roles at CESMII, MESA and other industry bodies.
We offer a very flexible approach to provide as much or as little help as you require. We can participate in each cadence meeting or act as a member of the steering committee. We can scale up or down to meet your needs.
Our focus in this process is to help raise the level of your team so that they can navigate the journey themselves. We are there to teach and to offer suggestions, not to put our people to work for years to come.
We have developed a massive library of content over our decades of work with other customers. Our coaches all have access to this library and can provide you with access to materials that are not available anywhere else.
