Simulation Capabilities Are Giving Manufacturers A Major Advantage

Simulation capabilities are being used by manufacturers everywhere to help decision makers understand what has happened or will happen in the future of their business. In the case of additive manufacturing, simulating the material properties and the processes embedded in devices, helps OEMs guarantee that they have the right combination of material and settings to […]

Preparing for Modern Manufacturing Challenges

Modern manufacturing has its fair share of issues, from supply shortages to distribution problems and an ever-fluctuating economy. To be successful, manufacturing companies must overcome some of these challenges by being prepared with a solution before a problem arises. The basis of most modern manufacturing challenges is lack of flexible and scalable technology. The companies […]

What is Holding Manufacturers Back from Adopting Advanced Technologies?

The landscape of business is changing due to digitalization and the introduction of advanced technologies. The manufacturing industry has always been seemingly content with how they operate their supply chains. Because of this, many manufacturers have deemed digitalization unnecessary. However, with product life-cycles getting shorter and competition tightening among industries, these businesses can’t afford to […]

How Much Are Your Supply Chain Practices REALLY Costing You?

For complex manufacturers, last minute issues can be very common and often time consuming. Complex manufacturing means complex processes and machinery, and without a way to track progress or the ability to pinpoint an inefficiency, there is no way to predict what could happen in the future. In many instances when an issue arises, every […]

Manufacturers Can Reduce Their Cost of Service and Improve Customer Satisfaction in Three Steps

“Customer expectations are rising across the board, and manufacturers are demanding greater responsiveness and additional visibility into the service of their equipment as they strive to maximize uptime.” Manufacturers are leveraging new and improved technologies that boost customer experience, increase the efficiency of the service organization and lower the cost of service. Planning, execution, and […]

A “Systems Thinker” Approach Could Be the Key to Process Optimization

“When a broad systems approach to problem solving isn’t applied, bad things can happen…and they often do.” A “systems thinker” is someone who takes the broader “system” into consideration before getting on with the fix to any particular problem. For manufacturers, it’s understanding their specific processes involved in producing their products before they make changes […]

Improving Plant Process Efficiency with Technology

” Improved regulatory control performance contributes to less production waste and energy consumption, fewer quality defects, more throughput, and higher yield. Uncovering – let alone realizing – those benefits is challenging for most process manufacturers given the complexity of their automation environment and the growing responsibilities faced by engineering and maintenance teams. The reports, alerts […]

How Manufacturers Can Leverage Their Data For Actionable Insights

“Manufacturers have a huge opportunity to benefit from data-based insights. Those that are able to analyze and leverage data will be able to make better decisions that propel their organizations to success in a highly competitive climate.” According to a recent manufacturing technology survey, the use of analytics and data is expected to grow over […]

Efficient Processes are Transforming the Manufacturing Industry into a Lean, Mean Profitable Machine

Efficiency is crucial in any manufacturing process. Consumers never think about all the time and money it took to create the products, instead their sole interest is getting the product they want at an acceptable price point and within a reasonable time frame. In an effort to optimize operations, many manufacturers have adopted a “leaner” […]
