AO report graphicThe autonomous plant and remote operations are two subjects that have generated strong interest due to COVID-19. In fact, 41% of Leaders are accelerating Autonomous Plant Initiatives because of the pandemic. LNS Research recently conducted a survey of more than 300 respondents across several industries to examine Autonomy within plants and throughout the entire value chain.

In addition, we examined how progression toward autonomy and remote operations were related to Industrial Transformation (IX) and how IX Leaders have approached autonomy and remote operations versus IX Followers. The results are both informative and insightful. They highlight the difficult road ahead toward autonomy, which LNS Research believes must flow through Operational Excellence (OE) and Industrial Transformation. 

50% of Industrial Transformation Leaders have an Autonomous Plant initiative formalized.
