By addressing some of the most prominent pitfalls, leaders can adopt this growing workplace trend without compromise. Here are three critical challenges to a remote work transition and steps every manufacturing leader can take to mitigate those difficulties today.
While COVID-19 may have many legacies, one of them will definitely be an explosion in the amount of network capacity required. Most enterprises are experiencing the need for increased network capacity.
A 2020 survey conducted by industrial automation provider Yokogawa revealed that 48 per cent of respondents valued productivity as a key focus in their digitalization strategies, while 40 per cent regarded operational efficiency as their main objective.
A recycling center customer was looking for a high-performance, industrial-grade Artificial Intelligence (AI) solution that could successfully function in harsh environments. The customer needed an automated solution to help identify certain materials on the recycling line.
Servitization is a business model, wherein manufacturers, i.e product-focused businesses aim to become a solution-based business. The goal of this transition is to create new revenue streams as well as to strengthen customer relationships.
