Manufacturing Intelligence: Keep Your Processes Under Control

Published By: TIBCO Software     Published Date: Feb 01, 2019
The current trend in manufacturing is towards tailor-made products in smaller lots with shorter delivery times. This change may lead to frequent production modifications resulting in increased machine downtime, higher production cost, product waste—and no need to rework faulty products. To satisfy the customer demand behind this trend, manufacturers must move quickly to new production models. Quality assurance is the key area that IT must support. At the same time, the traceability of products becomes central to compliance as well as quality. Traceability can be achieved by interconnecting data sources across the factory, analyzing historical and streaming data for insights, and taking immediate action to control the entire end-to-end process. Doing so can lead to noticeable cost reductions, and gains in efficiency, process reliability, and speed of new product delivery. Additionally, analytics helps manufacturers find the best setups for machinery.

Cisco Connected Factory Renaissance Manufacturing - IoT

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Nov 17, 2015
Industrial enterprises around the world are retooling their factories with advanced technologies to boost manufacturing flexibility and speed, achieving new levels of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), supply chain responsiveness, and customer satisfaction in the process. This renaissance reflects very real pressures industry players face today. For years, traditional factories have been operating at a disadvantage, impeded by production environments that are “disconnected”—at the very least strictly gated—to corporate business systems, to supply chains, and to customers and partners. Managers of these traditional factories say the feeling is akin to flying blind. These are operations where plant floors, front offices, and suppliers operate in independent silos, where managers have only hazy visibility into downtime and quality problems, and where the root causes of inefficiencies are rarely understood or addressed.

Digital Disruption: Closing the Connectivity Gap in Manufacturing with Digital Operations

Published By: Polycom     Published Date: Jul 24, 2014
Consumers anoint—and abandon—providers with breathtaking speed, causing seismic shifts in the market. This new era of consumers is also increasingly difficult to define, no longer neatly fitting into traditional marketing segments. With the rise of emerging markets and micro-segments, manufacturing is confronting the challenge of mass customization. The question is not if or when but how: Customers are demanding variety, and manufacturing companies must deliver. What’s key to making this work? Big data visibility, flexible processes, and an agile ecosystem that can move swiftly to serve an increasingly fragmenting, but exceptionally demanding consumer base.

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.
