Jan 2018 - Investment in Smart Manufacturing Critical to CEM Success

Agility has always been core to our business, and we’ve invested both time and resources in maintaining the most lean, and agile manufacturing environment for both our customers and ourselves.

Agility has always been core to our business, and we’ve invested both time and resources in maintaining the most lean, and agile manufacturing environment for both our customers and ourselves.  Achieving productivity and efficiency gains is high up on the agenda of any manufacturing business in today’s increasingly time pressured environment, as consumerisation continues to take hold

Smart manufacturing, Industry 4.0 or the 4th Industrial Revolution – call it what you will – understanding and implementing a strategy that connects data to the supply chain will be pivotal for the success of any CEM business in the months and years to come

More complex electronics is appearing in equipment throughout the electronics manufacturing process, allowing full communication both within the manufacturing site and the customer.  Once this was just the preserve of big organisations with matching budgets, but now a fully integrated MRP, in operations and manufacturing is within the grasp of smaller organisations

In essence, since committing and investing in smart manufacturing we’ve seen our productivity and quality improvement improve significantly.  We can offer customers access remotely to equipment to allow them to retrieve data, test equipment and fix issues.  And our equipment in turn can be remotely assessed and the software upgraded automatically which would have been unheard of even 2 years ago

Investing and committing in a strategy that embraces smart manufacturing whatever size of organisation you are, is essential to remain competitive in a tough and complex industry
