It should come as no surprise to learn that employee safety has made its way into the mobile app space, too. But how could introducing an app help your organization?
It's no secret that the engineering sector is experiencing a shortage of workers. In fact, research shows that the industry will need to train and employ around 200,000 people by 2024 to fill the gap.
Digitization, automation, and artificial intelligence in manufacturing have paved the way for new production methods. If employees are going to take on new responsibilities and operate connected devices, they need to be upskilled and trained accordingly.
By replicating authentic job scenarios in a safe and virtual setting, it's possible to both test and train welders effectively while simultaneously minimizing your long-term cost base.
Addressing lost productivity is particularly critical in today's climate. Despite technological advancements and economic growth, manufacturing productivity has declined since 2010, likely for the first period in American history.
Despite changes in working conditions, employers were still responsible for administering all types of training, from safety to job-specific onboarding and even general HR training. Perhaps unsurprisingly, many turned to online training for a solution.
Michigan Economic Development Corp. (MEDC) Starts Preparing Companies for the Future of Manufacturing
Michigan's manufacturing sector is crucial to its economy. It accounts for nearly 20% of the total output in the state, generating $102.35 billion and employing 631,000 people. Here's what MEDC is doing to ensure this critical part of the economy maintains growth.
The augmented demand for the technology from several industrial verticals due to the increasing use of simulation in the design of industrial tools by OEMs has facilitated the penetration of 3D animation solutions worldwide
The U.S. has been seeing declines in skilled labor during the past few years as experienced and knowledgeable employees continue to retire while fewer are choosing employment in factories or skilled trades.
As situations and equipment are constantly evolving based on consumer demand and market disruptions, manufacturers need to respond quickly to capitalize on new opportunities, and this requires agile reconfigurations that maintain a prioritization of worker safety.
Prestigious 140+ Year Old University Delivers Advanced Engineering and Technical Training With Method X
Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences enriches Additive Design and Manufacturing Courses with MakerBot 3D printers. Students use METHOD X for a range of prototyping applications in research and development, industry thesis projects, and more.
With skill gaps growing wider and continued predictions of future job vacancies, manufacturers need to place employee skilling at the top of their strategic operating plans if they're going to maintain a productive workforce and compete on a global scale.
In a time when the whole world is re-evaluating the way they do business, it is essential that industries utilizing Smart Factory and automated solutions do not become over-reliant on technology to get the job done.
With a clear shift towards more digitally enabled roles and a growing need for more automation and/or robotics across all industries, this requires more skilled people within these environments.
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

Allied Vision's compact and light weight Alvium SWIR (short wave infrared) cameras are the ideal choice to build cost-effective OEM systems used in embedded and machine vision applications. The cameras support a spectral range from 400 nm to 1700 nm at high quantum efficiencies. This allows to capture images in both the visible and SWIR spectra with a single camera and enables users to reduce overall system costs! Equipped with Sony's IMX990 and IMX991 SenSWIR InGaAs sensors, Alvium SWIR cameras deliver high image quality and frame rates. This makes them well suited for drones or handheld devices used in various industries such as, agriculture, mining, solar cell inspection or medical.
