The most significant transformations are likely to happen in factories, where the differences between EV and ICE vehicles could reshape workflows and drastically reduce labor hours.
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.
While errors are far less likely with CNC machines than manual processes, they can still happen. When they do, they can create bottlenecks, lead to waste and, if not caught, hamper client-customer relationships through poor-quality products.
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.
Leveraging artificial intelligence (AI), the manufacturing industry can protect workers better and ensure that all employees wear gear to stay compliant with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) protocols to avoid costly penalties.
Automating the traceability process is essential for manufacturers who want to avoid production bottlenecks, reduce production costs, and improve the marking quality to meet OEM traceability requirements.
Everything from pandemic production pivots to Suez Canal blockages shows the unpredictability of supply and demand. Unanticipated impacts to manufacturing processes are imminent, but there are three key considerations to mitigate the impact on business operations:
Read this article to get insight into the ways food manufacturers can take to rise and shine by putting their business firmly on the road to recovery in 2021
When it comes to industrial and manufacturing design and engineering, here we speak about low paced movement from 2D drawings to 3D models which are definitely more informative, easy-to-use and more adaptable to changes.
In the time of lean manufacturing where almost no company is fully vertically integrated, companies simply cannot have defective parts show up at their doorstep or build in lag time to allow for additional inspections that could have otherwise been avoided.
In light of that negative reputation, the plastic manufacturing industry needs to initiate changes to make the entire sector - as well as the product itself - more sustainable. What can we do to promote sustainability in plastic manufacturing?
What's next for the world of CNC operators? An increasing move to incorporate artificial intelligence, or AI, into operations. Over the next several years, CNC machining could see something of a revolution that includes machines that respond to Alexa-like voice commands.
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.
The fleet management industry is changing rapidly. New trends keep on coming in and businesses need to adapt accordingly to keep themselves updated.
IDS is convinced that the changeover to sustainable action is the only right way forward and tries to develop resource-saving solutions together with business partners. After all, relatively "small" changes can make a big difference - for the environment and for the company.
