Connected shop floor systems bring new options to streamline and integrate production, from product-design to prototype and from production planning to result. MES systems for example may be configured to load the correct machine CNC program, setting or digital instruction automatically when an operator changes over to a new production order. If [...]
Yes, shopfloor procedures have been documented. But are they followed? Always? When interviewing operators to design new IT systems for the shopfloor, you will find undocumented exceptions in work-processes like: “In that case I just run the material one more time through the operation” “If this happens we override the system with [...]
The fourth industrial revolution has shown the importance of accessing the right data for continuous improvement of our manufacturing performance. However, here there is more to it than just technology. IT is not a goal in itself. When selecting any new software application, it is critical to remember why the project was originally conceived to [...]
Drive innovation, eliminate data silos, and improve operational resilience Driving product and service innovation is increasingly dependent upon an operations infrastructure that is not hindered by systems or equipment interoperability.

Establish digital continuity as a model-based enterpriseInvesting in a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is often justified as part of an Industry 4.0 strategy. Yet, disconnected operations can block much of the potential for improved performance. A digital thread can overcome this challenge by establishing digital continuity across the entire product lifecycle – from cradle to grave.Join [...]
Measure what matters to drive forward your Industry 4.0 vision The fourth industrial revolution has taught us the importance of accessing the right data for intelligent decision support. Similarly, a successful implementation of a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) can only be achieved by first picking the right metrics to measure progress and identify shortcomings. Use [...]
