Unexpected failure or performance erosion of production equipment can significantly impact productivity, product quality and maintenance expenses within any manufacturing organization. It’s also difficult to get operations ‘back on track’ after these failures occur. The good news is that, via the Internet of Things, intelligent use of sensor data, machine learning and optimization can help companies take a proactive approach to predicting failures and re-optimizing processes around them.

"Extracting value from data is central to the digital transformation required for businesses to succeed in the decades to come. Buried in data are insights that reveals what your customers need and how they want to receive it, how sales, manufacturing, distribution, and other aspects of business operations are functioning, what risks are arising to threaten the business, and more. That insight empowers your businesses to reach new customers, develop and deliver new products, to operate more efficiently and more effectively, and even to develop new business models. "

Your goal is clear-produce high-quality goods while optimizing resources at every step of production. And in today's uncertain economy, cost-control efforts may never have been more important. Unscheduled downtime because of equipment failure can have a serious impact on your organization's bottom line. Download this white paper from IBM, and learn the basics of predictive maintenance, the benefits it provides manufacturing operations and the underlying technologies that make it possible. Predictive analytics helps you in a number of ways: identify when equipment is likely to fail or need maintenance and take action to maximize uptime and reduce future warranty claims costs; optimize allocated labor resources and spare part inventories, helping eliminate undue maintenance, prevent downtime and reduce inventory costs; and determine why certain production runs fail more often than others, identify the cause and analyze whether those runs warrant a recall.

Robots play a key role in achieving manufacturing efficiencies and reducing labor intensive operations across diverse industries. Traditional machine vision has its limitations, however—typically, it can only conduct defect detection and classification based on fixed rules and work in fixed environments. To add on, the complexity of robotic system design poses challenges for many manufacturers to identify and integrate subsystems from multiple vendors. The future of robot and machine solutions is a production environment where devices, machines, robots, and sensors are interoperable. Find out how NexCOBOT integrates AI-driven vision capabilities into robotics to improve quality and accuracy over traditional machine vision—as well as providing an open and modular solution for users to develop a robot control system that best fits their particular application requirements.

To remain competitive, manufacturers must focus on achieving new growth while driving down costs. Key to achieving this is greater flexibility and a dramatic upturn in operational efficiency across the manufacturing process. One area ripe for improvement is intralogistics transportation. Many manufacturers still rely on autonomous guide vehicles (AGVs) to undertake repetitive transport tasks; but, rigid in nature, they do not support today’s demand-driven, dynamic manufacturing environments. Intelligent autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), like SEIT* from Milvus Robotics, offer a viable and cost-effective alternative. This solution brief describes how to solve business challenges through investment in innovative technologies.

Manufacturing and product companies are facing critical challenges. To survive in the new global economy, companies need to continuously reinvent themselves. They need to rapidly add new products and acquire new businesses. They need to build new partnerships and channels. They can’t depend on the same set of suppliers tomorrow that they do today. And they can’t expect to do business the same way in new and emerging markets. For these reasons, enterprises need a new kind of ERP, one that’s faster to deploy and can: Adapt very quickly Go into the hands of employees, customers and partners immediately, with little or no training Provide continuous visibility into their operations It’s no surprise that CIOs, manufacturing managers and operational executives are looking for new solutions. They have to ?nd solutions to get the three strategic capabilities they need to succeed: greater operational agility, the ability to collaborate and continuous visibility.

Large industrial facilities such as warehouses and manufacturing plants present a huge operational challenge because of their size. With extremely tall ceilings and a lot of square footage to cool or heat, keeping occupants comfortable is difficult. The solution: MacroAir big industrial ceiling fans. MacroAir large industrial fans create a more comfortable climate and reduce energy costs for large industrial facilities. MacroAir invented the large industrial ceiling fan in 1998 to deliver a cost-effective climate control solution by generating large amounts of airflow. MacroAir’s big industrial fans produce a cooling effect, help control the effects of humidity, and can also help conserve heat in colder months by pushing warm air that is trapped at the ceiling toward the walls and down to the floor at occupant level. MacroAir big industrial ceiling fans create an environment where employee’s feel comfortable, which results in increased productivity and improved industrial operations.

There is little question that cloud is well established as a way to deliver business applications. Based on IDC research, over 70% of manufacturing companies are using hosted applications somewhere within their supply chain, with another 25% considering it. The most popular supply chain management (SCM) application areas are transportation related (transportation management, global trade management), where the "network effect" (i.e., carrier pooling, regulatory impact) can leverage both shared knowledge and existing connectivity along with sales and operations planning, demand signal management, and business intelligence/analytics. The concern that cloud is "risky" is increasingly taking a back seat to the perceived benefits of the technology. Indeed, those benefits, both achieved and anticipated, are significant, including cost, speed of implementation, and the ability to "consume" new capabilities and functionality easily and transparently.

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.
