Like most manufacturing companies Intel needed to take an initiative to figure out how to empower working from home without interrupting production throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. In order for its factories to run safely, it had to look at a variety of challenges. Understandably, Intel’s manufacturing processes are already highly automated, and it had a proven Manufacturing IT global operation model in place long before the pandemic. “However, pandemic travel restrictions and the mandate that employees should work from home if possible, led us to develop innovative solutions to keep employees safe while still maintaining factory operational excellence,” says Jeff Walsh, the general manager of manufacturing IT at Intel.
