Demand More From Suppliers: How the Right Partnership Boosts Your Bottom Line

Published By: Sparton Corporation     Published Date: Oct 09, 2018
Manufacturing suppliers range from approved vendors and contract manufacturers (CMs) who only deliver materials and services to complex strategic partnerships. A transactional relationship based primarily on order fulfillment might work well for some companies. However, by taking a CM relationship to the next level of supplier-partner, organizations gain strategic benefits including cost savings, reduced risks, and optimized profits. The right cultural fit and the right-sized partner for your business can play a key role in building this long-term relationship.

Wi-Fi Bed Management Case Study

Published By: STANLEY Healthcare     Published Date: Mar 24, 2015
Using LEAN Six Sigma techniques, Central Sterile Processing and Materials Management leaders at Peninsula Regional Medical Center (PRMC) identified specialty bed management as an area ripe for improvement. They were spending too much time looking for these assets and renting too many specialty beds. Initially, the team focused on streamlining its order form process. They soon realized they were getting better—but at the wrong thing. They still weren’t achieving the desired results. Read this case study to learn how Peninsula Regional Medical Center implemented STANLEY Healthcare’s AeroScout® Real Time Locating System (RTLS) and uses real-time location to improve specialty bed management, dramatically reducing rental costs.

Advanced Root Cause Analysis for Product Quality Improvement using ML in TIBCO Spotfire

Published By: TIBCO Software GmbH     Published Date: Jan 15, 2019
Gradient Boosting Machine (GBM) modeling is a powerful machine learning technique for advanced root cause analysis in manufacturing. It will uncover problems that would be missed by regression-based statistical modelling techniques and single tree methods, but can easily be used by analysts with no expertise in statistics and modelling to solve complex problems. It is an excellent choice for advanced equipment commonality analysis and will detect interactions between process factors (for example, machines, recipes, process dates) that are responsible for bad product. It can also be used to identify complex nonlinear relationships and interactions between product quality measurements (for example, yield, defects, field returns) and upstream measurements from the product, process, equipment, component, material, or environment.

You could spend days or weeks working on it, yet have very low confidence in the numbers you present. If your conceptual estimates are: ? Too time-consuming to produce.. ? Based more on guesswork than actual data... ? Not helping you win more projects… You’re making things harder than they need to be.

Performance Textiles and Fabrics: Assessing and Verifying Product Performance Claims

Published By: UL     Published Date: Sep 12, 2018
Performance textiles and fabrics are rapidly bringing apparel and footwear products into the 21st century. Manufacturers today are innovating at breakneck speed and bringing to the market synthetic textiles and fabrics with enhanced performance characteristics, or that feature embedded fibers or topical applications. This has led to the widespread introduction of advanced performance apparel and footwear that offer you new levels of comfort and safety. At the same time, sorting through claims regarding the performance characteristics of these advanced textiles and fabrics can present real challenges for manufacturers, retailers and you. At a minimum, the myriad of vague, conflicting or unsubstantiated marketing claims and characterizations used to promote these materials often result in frustration and disappointment. And fraudulent representations can unnecessarily expose apparel manufacturers and retail buyers to potentially hazardous chemicals and other risks.

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.

Does the Quality of a Patient’s Wristband Really Matter?

Published By: Zebra Technologies     Published Date: Jun 20, 2018
Digital technology continues to play an ever-increasing role in today’s modern healthcare systems. While 95% of hospitals in the United States have implemented Electronic Health Records or EHR, much work remains.1 Patient identification errors continue to plague hospitals and are the precipitating factor for 13% of surgical mistakes and 67% of transfusion mix-ups.2 Nationally, medication errors cause at least one death every day and injure 1.3 million people annually.3 The cost of lost lives, reduced productivity and malpractice insurance fees are debilitating the healthcare industry. At the center of every hospital’s safety program is the patient wristband, which provides caregivers access to the information they need at every point of care during the patient stay. However, not all wristbands are of equal quality. Some wristbands are not durable enough to withstand the rigors of a busy hospital environment, leading to workarounds and mistakes that, in the end, comprise patient care. H
