Reshoring holds great potential for companies to gain increased flexibility and responsiveness when facing supply chain disruption. During COVID-19, we saw companies forced to fly to China to pick up specific parts.
This article will explain the three technologies, that, based on Boston Consulting Group's Quality 4.0 study - will be deployed by most manufacturers who are planning to improve their quality management.
Within the industrial world, leaders are defining their journey to autonomous manufacturing. Manufacturers are focusing on digitization strategies that will help to drive efficiency across their plants.
This year at MODEX we'll be highlighting CAD Is The Model technology, which enables system designers to mark up their solutions in SOLIDWORKS and Autodesk Inventor and create articulated and dynamic systems for emulation testing. Booth #7869
The analysis of the operating conditions improves maintenance and allows more precise predictions to be made on usage behaviour, wear and tear, and malfunctions using "big data" approaches - the availability of lift systems is thus optimized.
As the baby boomers born in the 1940s and 1950s start to retire, this means that the manufacturing, lumber, distribution, and retail sectors look set to suffer from a lack of sufficiently-skilled staff in the next 20-30 years.
Digital transformation is key to the success of many manufacturing businesses in todays environment, and service assurance is key to achieving that transformation.
Adi Gaskell for Forbes: Such a network ensures you not only have the technological skills required but also the cultural and softer factors that are so important.
Andrew Moore for Upstate Business Journal: The new partnership includes a program that aims to develop better manufacturing techniques for home appliances, foster public-private collaboration, and encourage more students to pursue advanced manufacturing as a career.
Greg Nichols for ZDNet: It's an early step in a bold experiment by a global retailer to use time-saving robots to design small-batch collections, a departure from the mass production methods employed by global shoe and apparel brands.
Phys.org: Solar cells can generate electricity in an environmentally friendly way, but current, complex fabrication costs make the technology expensive.
Clients work with Accenture to design and prototype digital solutions that improve engineering, manufacturing, production and deliver new customer experiences
By connecting manufacturing leaders with end-users, implementing machines that are able to maintain themselves and teaching current employees how to work with the new line of industrial robotics, proactive and tech-savvy manufacturers are in a position to revolutionize the way they do business from this point forward.
Scott Kirsner for Boston Globe: The revolution is about three things: more advanced software for designing things; devices like 3-D printers that can quickly crank out a prototype; and robots and other technologies that will make the factory floor more efficient and flexible.
Kenkyo Investing via Seeking Alpha: For the purpose of getting the conversation flowing, I'll focus on what the big 4 players are doing in the race for smart factory software development.
