When it comes to adopting new technology, most concerns center around the time and resources needed for the process to be completed. However, most business owners and management teams understand that competitive advantage in today’s age can only be maintained through introduction of digital processes in manufacturing. This set of technologies have been extremely impactful on the overall industry in the last decade, and the effect is only getting bigger. The implementation becomes mandatory, but fortunately it is also increasingly easier to do.
- Machine monitoring boosts the productivity of workers by identifying bottlenecks that slow down production.
- Open-source interoperability standards are paving the way for manufacturing work to be done the same by all companies across the board.
- Down time can really slow down production when errors occur that need to be addressed before operations can continue.
“From machine monitoring to machine tool dynamics to out-of-the-box digital tools, digital manufacturing technologies are a requirement for competing in the marketplace as well as simplifying and improving businesses.”
