Connected Factory Accelerator

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Jan 08, 2016
Many manufacturers are pursuing the immense business benefits available from digitizing and connecting their factories. Major gains in overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), reduced downtime, and manufacturing flexibility can be achieved with a factory that is digitized and connected. By providing visibility to machines and processes, manufacturers can anticipate issues that create unplanned downtime. By putting in place a secure, converged and wireless-ready network, manufacturers can have a platform that enables the agility to quickly start up new machines, cells, and lines, and rapidly deliver new products.

Build, Buy, or Both? Talent Management Reaches Out, Steps Up with Virtual Training Environments

Published By: Polycom     Published Date: Jul 24, 2014
Build or buy? When manufacturers have sought new leaders, they have typically done both: grooming talent in-house and paying market rates for the best thinkers and managers. With the growing STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) shortage, companies will be harder-pressed to buy – and keep – top technical talent. Emerging and established leaders will command premium prices and field continual offers, increasing the likelihood they’ll make frequent job changes, taking their industry and institutional knowledge with them. As a consequence, manufacturers will need to build their talent pipeline, empower knowledge workers with the tools and intelligence they need to succeed, and provide professional development opportunities that exceed what competitors offer. This will be a marathon, not a sprint. What’s key to making the race for talent successful: virtual training environments that accelerate learning and innovation.

Three Things Your Field Service Organization Needs to Know About IoT

Published By: Oracle Service Cloud     Published Date: Mar 23, 2016
The Internet of Things (IoT) is connecting our world in ways that were unimaginable 10 years ago—collecting data on everything we do and using it to streamline our daily activities. In doing so, IoT is changing the way that consumers think about service. Service organizations must be prepared to support these new customer expectations to ensure continued satisfaction to strengthen and foster loyalty. Additionally, IoT is making its way into the enterprise, especially among organizations in industries like utilities, oil and gas, medical devices, manufacturing and telecommunications. Connected devices enable more efficient processes for maintenance and repair by constantly providing information on machines’ performance, environmental conditions, and possible failures. For example, a connected washing machine in a customer’s home could automatically send out an error report to the manufacturer when it experiences a failure. This is where field service management comes in.

Smarter Operations Chapter Three: Additive Manufacturing in Production

Published By: UPS     Published Date: Nov 09, 2017
The Role of Additive Manufacturing in Production of the Future Additive manufacturing (AM) is the process of adding layers of material — most commonly plastics or resins, and increasingly metals — to produce products according to precise digital plans. With AM, products are produced using only the material necessary, therefore minimizing scrap. Modern digital technology is transforming every industry, including manufacturing. Yet in The Rise of Smart Operations, a survey of machinery manufacturers conducted by UPS and IDC, roughly one-half of the respondents said their digital or “smart” operations were lagging the competition or were at a significant disadvantage. Manufacturers will also find practical solutions they can consider implementing today to incorporate smarter operations in their production processes of the future.

Integrated Co-op Marketing

Published By: Balihoo     Published Date: May 28, 2010
One of the major challenges facing manufacturers' marketing teams in their efforts to make reseller co-op marketing more effective is at the very heart of what defines the century-old co-op marketing concept -- the coordination and execution of programs and financial transactions across two separate organizations. Today, when the manufacturer is working with hundreds if not thousands of different resellers, the scale and breadth of the effort can be overwhelming. However breakthroughs are not only possible today,but quite achievable by applying specialized and fully integrated technology solutions, bringing co-op marketing management into the modern age.
