SKF is building a new generation of manufacturing systems, which embrace the power of todays digital technologies to achieve a further step-change in speed, efficiency and flexibility.
Japan is moving towards Neo-Industrial Manufacturing - Formation of Flexible Factory Partner Alliance
It appears Japanese factories, companies are looking beyond the IOT and or IOE; aiming to connect a variety of assets, e.g., machines, data, technologies, people, and organizations, as well as the existing industries and digital technologies, thereby bringing about the creation of new added value and the solutions to societal problems, bringing "Connected Industries" to fruition.
Every manufacturer needs to figure out what issues or "low hanging fruit" can be addressed to further streamline operations, increase throughput, minimize bottlenecks, and deliver exceptional customer service to maintain or expand their competitive advantage.
We are in the midst of a major shift that is redefining how our manufacturing processes and industry operate. The amount of data collected from connected, digital devices is growing exponentially, enabling more robust business insights.
Training Tomorrow's Manufacturing Leaders: an Inside Look at McKinsey's North American Digital Capability Center (DCC)
The DCC is a unique learning center where companies leaders and their workforces participate in hands-on, next-gen digital manufacturing workshops. This helps them advance their business operations, design and productivity, and prepare for tomorrows jobs.
Management might not think that it could happen, but too much growth can overwhelm a manufacturer, as the business breaks down under the stress of expansion. Growth is good, but slow growth is best.
The marriage of 3-D printing and the aerospace industry is a shining example of a relationship that's mutually beneficial. While it was the innovations of top aerospace manufacturers that ultimately led to today's interest in 3-D printing, it's these same designers and engineers who are now pushing the limits of current technology.

You need a new way of thinking, you need different training, you need different machines. This whole ecosystem is quite different from how we did things before.
By connecting their factories all over the world, manufacturers can see the entire operation. They can make updates in real-time. They have vision into which plants are running efficiently or where there are production issues.
Manufacturing in the US isnt dying-Its getting smarter
Without good contracts, a manufacturer may be fully exposed to liability - without protection and legal recourse against the responsible party - and at the mercy of the laws of other jurisdictions.
With such a wide and diverse selection of Multi-Tasking machines available today, its sometimes hard to imagine a situation when using single task machines is a better option, but there are more than most shops would think.
The long-term objective of the program is to continue providing support to system integrators and OEMs in our target industries, and to also expand into new verticals.
Developing a capability to configure, price and quote for every custom order is definitely a need of the hour, and this requires manufacturers to adopt a robust CPQ solution that solves the exact purpose of keeping business processes efficient while enhancing guided selling for customers.
The most sought-after skill sets and well-rounded, experienced employees can be hard to find, but the most successful manufacturers are approaching talent cultivation proactively, in lieu of reacting to an immediate growth- or project-driven need.
