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.
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.
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.
While it’s important for manufacturers to have sound cybersecurity measures and protocols in place, it’s equally important to have IT resilience and orchestration solutions at the ready.
Even when you can connect directly to whatever it is that you are measuring and design the system yourself, you might encounter issues. Inconsistencies can arise from power failures, wifi outages, faulty or damaged equipment.
