Manufacturing and Automation - Articles, Stories & Interviews
The main essence of a supply chain is to deliver the right product to the right people at the right time. While it may sound simple, it is difficult to achieve.
In the final article of this series, we highlight the three business valuation approaches, as well as the level of value adjustments, and provide a final summary of what manufacturers need to know about business valuation.
With fewer docks required because each dock can handle higher volumes, the automatic unloading system processes up to 6,000 parcels per hour which means that the maximum capacity of the sorting machines can be utilized achieving optimal overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).
SME created the Additive Manufacturing Competition to attract and introduce the younger generation to emerging technologies that manufacturers have adopted over the past few years.
The growing number of industrialisation questions are indicative of a growing maturity in the marketplace. AM machines are moving out of prototyping applications and research laboratories and into mainstream production manufacturing.
When determining the rate of adoption of new technologies, the Gartner hype cycle is a good point of reference. The hype cycle for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), however, shouldn’t be confused with general IoT, which applies to consumer IoT technology.
With all the buzz about these new design tools, there is still quite a bit of ground left to be covered in ensuring these next-generation designs are actually manufacturable. That is where we can really shine.
