The multitude of challenges that manufacturers face today is accelerating the need to adapt process innovation, embrace technology, and digitalize operations. Transformation is essential for manufacturers to become more resilient, agile, productive, and profitable.
Whether it be hybrid, multi, or on-premise, cloud technology has the ability to significantly increase productivity and scale processes throughout the entire organization.
The benefits of automation are widely known, and most manufacturers aim to incorporate it into production to some degree. However, many of these targets have so far only resulted in plans, pilots or small scale automation projects.
Manufacturers have become increasingly reliant on cloud-based resources, such as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications and data migrating from the data center to multi-cloud environments. This requires a new model for secure network access.
Automation helps companies achieve greater flexibility and planning reliability, even in the case of multi-variant production. One factor that deters many companies from switching to automated processes, however, is time.
Given the advanced state of anthropogenic climate change and widespread awareness of its human impact, it's time for manufacturing to adopt carbon offsetting practices.
Those manufacturers that digitize their operations will gain significant advantages, and those that don't will have a more difficult time catching up.
The process of creating a digital transformation roadmap in manufacturing can look very different for each organization. It very much depends on where exactly the company stands in its digital journey.
Obsolescence is the natural consequence of continuous advances in technology. As such, it is impossible to eliminate it completely. However, it is possible to manage it strategically to minimize its negative impact on your business.
The direct influence of a workforce in determining an organization's purpose can be as much, and, sometimes even more of a reason for an individual to enthusiastically and wholeheartedly work at a company as the financial compensation they receive.
With more and more data comes the need for storage and fast access which means that technology like DDR5 has never been more important.
Often robots have enough mass, speed, and inertia that any contact with humans creates the primary hazard; process driven hazards, for example sparks/splatter and UV light in a robotic welding process becomes the secondary hazard.
B2B buying habits have been evolving independent of the pandemic, and manufacturers must adopt strategies and technologies that also address the following ongoing trends.
Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) has been a leading manufacturing performance metric for decades. As Industry 4.0 has taken off, manufacturers now have a range of new tools and techniques that can improve their OEE scores.
The benefits of DNC software when it comes to managing your CNC programs, machine parameters, and offsets are well known. As a result, many businesses look to offer some form of DNC software or their own, ranging from thousands of dollars to absolutely free.
