We are entering a new manufacturing era defined by AI, machine learning and vision, enabling us to teach machines to adapt and learn plans and move us toward a true "Lot Size 1" utopia. Automation's next era will be defined not around volume, but around intelligence.
Products are becoming more and more complicated-and manufacturers are having a harder time keeping up. 92% of manufacturers have reported that their products have become more complex over the last half-decade.
MFG Day 2020 to Educate Students Across the Country on the Importance of the Modern Manufacturing Industry
The 8th annual and first virtual MFG Day, organized by The Manufacturing Institute with Microsoft, PTC and Salesforce, aims to inspire the country's next generation of talent to learn about the modern manufacturing industry throughout October
Global organisations are turning to multi-sourcing and regional supply chains; COVID-19 has accelerated a rethink of supply chains, prioritising flexibility and robustness; Domestic politics and geopolitics impact supply chains as Brexit, elections and rival superpowers clash.
More devices mean more data and more information. But there is a catch! Data in itself is not helpful until used in the right context. In order to gain that context, you must ask the right questions from the data.
"The PLTW Engineering Program at Corona High School in Corona, California, is designed to set the students up to give them the best real world breadth education to be able to go directly into the manufacturing field..."
In the age of IoT, warehouse automation is at the forefront of many industries. In this series , we will dive into the different technologies used in warehouse automation and the important components to drive its success and efficiency.
Supply chain visibility and diversification have become top priorities for manufacturers, retailers and logistic providers. Today, they are faced with challenges they never expected, but - luckily - they are using new technologies to solve them.
Many industrial leaders were encouraged to find the use of manufacturing executions systems (MESs) and plant data repositories (Historians) reduced the challenge of maintaining effective control of production from afar.
Compared to the classic hydraulic solution, these electric drives offer numerous advantages in terms of robustness, safety, and operating convenience. They are also easier to maintain and run more efficiently to save cost.
When it comes to time-series data, there is no shortage of options. Cloud-based, data-lake, open source, and historians are all readily available solutions for data storage, along with lower prices for sensors, and wired or wireless offerings for data aggregation.
Due to the customer demand for customization one-of-a-kind manufacturing has never been stronger; there has been a 100% increase in ETO manufacturing over the past fifteen years.
Precision industrial motion systems are used in test, assembly or laser micro-machining of high precision and high value components and in electronics, optics, and photonics manufacturing, to name a few.
Forward, Toward a New Normal - A transitional playbook for resuming manufacturing operations in the [hopefully soon to be post] Covid-19 Era
As companies and their workforces emerge from their forced coronavirus hiatus, a clear picture of a "new normal" for the manufacturing business and its employees remains elusive, with only hazy possibilities and vague pathways forward.
Getting everything you can out of your technology and processes has never been more critical. In supply chain management and logistics, there is a new way to streamline your operations.
