Strategic Sourcing is about investing in alternate sources and deep supply-based analytics to squeeze every available part out of the worldwide supply.
Both autonomous manufacturing and hybrid autonomous manufacturing introduce a level of automation never seen before. The system does all the work, with machines and technology as a strong foundation, and people are relegated to monitoring and support.
While zero-emissions equipment and waste reduction strategies are crucial, sustainability is complex, involving far more factors than construction work itself. The manufacturers that produce building materials must also improve for the industry to become truly sustainable.
Gartner found last year B2B buyers now only spend 17 percent of their time meeting with potential suppliers and vendors when deciding a purchase. Virtual selling via digital channels and commerce to price to quote (CPQ) techology is predominating.
Wondering how to solve supply chain problems? Leaders should ask these three questions to uncover supply chain strategy opportunities.
Managing an industrial facility means dealing with several hazards. While some of these risks, like repetitive motion strains and machine collisions, may be obvious, some are less evident. Noise control, for example, often goes overlooked in industrial safety.
New orders hit a 16-month low in October 2021, according to the Institute for Supply Management (ISM). Similarly, 26 commodities were in short supply, some for more than a year. However, despite these setbacks, manufacturers still have a chance to grow.
Supply chains and the climate are more intricately linked than many may realize. Just eight global supply chains are responsible for more than 50% of greenhouse gas emissions.
Over the past few years, several significant obstacles have emerged for manufacturing supply chains. Here are three of the most pressing of these and what strategies could address them.
There are many specific actions you can take to conserve water during your manufacturing processes, and the first step is finding and fixing unwanted leaks in your equipment and machines.
Though most manufacturers have long believed that people are maxed out, and when it comes to productivity, manual assembly lines are as optimized as possible, new technology is challenging that belief structure.
Metal finishing is a crucial process in many modern manufacturing operations. While the practice itself is by no means new, the industry has likely only scratched the surface of its potential.
Inventory issues can cause delays, limit productivity and generate unnecessary expenses. Manufacturing storage must improve if the industry is to become more efficient and resilient.
While a CNC user might employ various methods for data transfer, they can either be classified based on the type of data being transferred or the method of data transfer employed.
The Intel announcement is a recognition of the value of U.S.-based manufacturing, and the business will support a very long supply chain of semiconductor assembly tool designs and manufacturing in the U.S.

Industrial control environments need to address shock, vibration, temperature, and space constraints. TE Connectivity's Industrial Mini I/O connector family is designed specifically with these needs in mind. The Mini I/O product takes the place of RJ45 connectors which were designed for office applications but wasn't originally intended for an industrial environment. The Mini I/O connectors are 25% of the size of RJ45 and are designed for the shock, vibration and temperature ranges of industrial control.
