Setting up a digital manufacturing environment is achievable for manufacturers of all sizes. While it can be overwhelming to think about how to initially set this up, the value gained for companies in the long run far out weighs the initial set up costs. Just as major league baseball managers are using new analytical means to measure the true value of players, manufacturers are increasingly relying on data to drive their decisions. We encourage leaders to take the first step and start small as they begin using data to optimize their operations. Curious what data you can capture and what it can do for you?
Manufacturers are increasingly implementing augmented reality (AR) technology to improve their manufacturing processes. And for good reason—AR typically results in cost reductions, increased speed and fewer errors.
Yesterday, WIRE-Net in partnership with Bank of America, Conxus NEO, Oswald Companies, MAGNET: The Manufacturing Advocacy and Growth Network, Skoda Minotti, and Team NEO, released the 2018 Northeast Ohio Regional Manufacturing Survey report—a collection of responses from more than 400 companies that represent 76,000 Ohio manufacturing workers in Ohio.
It’s that time of year when many manufacturers are making plans for the new year, and organizations that work closely with manufacturers are doing likewise, while also trying to keep on top of changes in the manufacturing sector.
