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.

For years, manufacturers have been trying to streamline processes and associated supply chains by building marketplaces, standardized exchanges, and monolithic systems. In many cases, these solutions missed the mark, resulting in fragmented and brittle processes without easy data sharing. Blockchain, the underlying technology behind Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, can potentially solve these problems. Sharing information via a trusted distributed network with embedded business logic offers many benefits for manufacturing, especially when combined with the IoT and AI communities. Watch this webinar: Blockchain & Manufacturing: A Smarter Way to Drive Efficiency in the Semiconductor and Electronics Supply Chains, with speaker Nelson Petracek, chief technology officer, TIBCO Software.

MANUFACTURING: AN INDUSTRY DRIVEN BY DISRUPTION A leading manufacturer today can be an also-ran next year. Disruption is the new normal. Maintain the status quo at your peril because no manufacturer is safe from: •? Innovative new products that can radically shift demand •? Falling prices that relentlessly pressure costs •? Dynamic business models where yesterday’s partner can become tomorrow’s competitor Turning disruption into your advantage requires continuous innovation and optimization, driven by data.

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.

Our active and actively aging population is the dichotomy fueling significant growth for implantable medical devices. Innovations focused on mobility, engagement and quality of life are directly targeting this growing population. The implantable medical device industry is poised to capitalize on these unique needs, while simultaneously meeting unprecedented cost pressures. It is time for manufacturers to seek expertise in inventory management and logistics for greater visibility, control and profitability. For implantable medical device manufacturers to be as active and healthy as the patients they serve, their future depends on the ability to differentiate products — not only by price, but through cost, service and documented outcomes. New trends in personal health tracking keep patients moving, and data collection will similarly improve the health of your business.

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.
