The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated EtherCAT specific requirements:

STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with…

  • The latest quick edition of the EtherCAT Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals…

STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which EtherCAT improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the standard requirements:

  1. What critical content must be communicated; who, what, when, where, and how?

  2. Can Management personnel recognize the monetary benefit of EtherCAT?

  3. Will it solve real problems?

  4. Are improved process (‘should be’) maps modified based on pilot data and analysis?

  5. Does the EtherCAT performance meet the customer’s requirements?

  6. What evidence is there and what is measured?

  7. Have new benefits been realized?

  8. How much are sponsors, customers, partners, stakeholders involved in EtherCAT? In other words, what are the risks, if EtherCAT does not deliver successfully?

  9. Is the EtherCAT process severely broken such that a re-design is necessary?

  10. Is the measure understandable to a variety of people?

Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

Results

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any EtherCAT project with this in-depth EtherCAT Toolkit.

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose EtherCAT projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in EtherCAT and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, ‘What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?’

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that – whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc… – they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make EtherCAT investments work better.

This EtherCAT All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person:
