We've all heard the phrase, 'like a kid in a candy store'. Visiting automation trade shows can leave even the calmest visitors eager to get their hands on some automation action. Before parting with your cash, Claudia Jarrett suggests three important questions to ask.
As more experienced workers begin to reach retirement age, how can they attract the next wave of the workforce to get a younger generation into manufacturing roles? 2020 will be about enabling newer workers with the right technology and a data-driven mindset.
One of the trends we've identified is the interest by diversified industrial companies to streamline businesses and realign around key markets or customer segments to further drive results. We're seeing an increase in mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures as these companies recalibrate their capabilities.
As an industrial manufacturing engineer writing and speaking about the supply chain for many years, as well as being in the field helping companies for most all of my career, I wanted to pass on some thoughts and information for those of you that are considering this type of deployment option - especially if your mission-critical business depends upon a working cloud.
The promise of greatly enhanced productivity is leading manufacturers to embrace smarter, autonomous IoT-based systems. Choice IOT's Darren Sadana points out the importance of building these new capabilities on a stable infrastructure.
Few industries have been impacted more by the advent of robotics than the manufacturing industry. In fact, the manufacturing industry was one of the first to implement robotics all the way back in 1961. Since then, science-fiction has become a normal part of life. Let's take a look at how robotics has become an indispensable asset to the manufacturing industry.
Midsized manufacturers, with revenues between $10 million and $1 billion, are also increasing investments in IIoT. Typically, their focus is on IIoT solutions that employ sensors on plant floor equipment, boosting productivity and efficiency, reducing downtime - and increasing exposure to cyber risks.
Rittal Climate Solutions will help you keep your cool, even in the most challenging industrial environments. From audit to design to manufacturing, we work closely with you to deliver the right solution.
The IoT ecosystem connects heterogeneous processes, personnel, resources, devices, sensors, robotics, heavy machineries, and business procedures in a cohesive way to attain optimum resource usage and enhance the productivity of business processes.
With shrinking margins and increasing pressure to deliver better, faster, and cheaper goods and services, manufacturers must find ways to improve efficiencies, reduce costs, and open new revenue streams - none of which can be accomplished without embracing the IIoT.
KEEPING TABS ON TECHNOLOGY FOR NATIONAL MANUFACTURING DAY. More than ever, today's manufacturing leaders need to stay ahead of the technology that can make or break not just their businesses, but disrupt their entire industry.
To be able to compete with other manufacturers in this area, the factory needs technological advancement and constant evolution of the production process.
Sean Riley, Global Industry Director for Manufacturing & Transportation, Software AG: Industry-wide, use cases have been proven, IIoT platforms have shown their effectiveness and potential, and roadmaps to success have been developed.
Although 2011 is considered the unofficial start of the fourth industrial revolution, U.S. manufacturers have reported zero average growth in labor productivity over the past five years - despite continual improvements in equipment, software and management approaches.
Among the wealth of use cases for AI & ML in manufacturing, one rises above the rest in terms of feasibility and impact - predictive maintenance. Predictive maintenance addresses the age-old challenge of ensuring maximum availability of critical manufacturing systems.
