10 REASONS WHY YOU NEED ERP-BASED PLM
In today’s manufacturing companies, CAD, PLM and ERP solutions are traditionally implemented as stand-alone solutions, which each has its own data structure, interface and capabilities to fulfill Engineering, Operations and Manufacturing requirements respectively. However, with the rise of Industry 4.0, for manufacturers to stay competitive they must be able to implement solutions that interconnect information and processes not only across the internal enterprise and departments but external partners and suppliers as well.

4 Key Benefits of Designing for Manufacturability

whitePaper | July 29, 2023

Your design engineers are masters at coming up with elegant solutions to challenges. But they probably aren’t familiar with the cuttingedge manufacturing technologies, processes, and materials that can transform those solutions into feasible medical components and products that are cost-effective to produce and valued by end-users. That often results in a disconnect between design and manufacturing that can cost you both time and money.

How Contract Packagers Are Revolutionizing Their Operation with Robotics-As-A-Service

whitePaper | August 23, 2022

The contract packaging industry is growing at a 12.5% annual growth rate1, according to Contract Packaging Association (CPA). Driven by the continued increase in consumer brands (more than 30,0001 ), there are now over 1,0002 contract packaging companies in the U.S., ranging from smaller operations with 20 employees to some with more than 1,000 employees. More and more consumer goods companies are relying on contract packaging partners to continue providing quality products, faster time-to-market, reliable delivery, and continued innovation. While the packaging industry is seeing of opportunity and growth, there are some challenges to carefully navigate.

INDUSTRY 4.0

whitePaper | June 1, 2022

Robots. Artificial Intelligence. Complex algorithms that take decisions for you before you even knew they needed to be taken. Machines that ‘talk’ to each other and take action about the goods they are producing. Vehicles that drive themselves, and alert you to the fact that they are about to break down before they actually do so.

SALES & OPERATIONS PLANNING Balancing Supply & Demand in Manufacturing

whitePaper | September 1, 2022

A tale as old as industrialization itself. The former driven by producers, the latter by consumers. Every business is subject to the supply and demand paradigm, but manufacturing organizations in particular, since they determine the supply side of the equation. When we talk about “demand,” we are talking about the quantity of a specific good or service that consumers are willing and able to purchase during a given period of time. When we talk about “supply,” we are talking about the quantity of that specific good or service that is available to consumers.

How a digital manufacturing platform increases your Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)

whitePaper | January 10, 2023

Now COVID-19 has made it even more pressing to switch to digital, it is high time to say goodbye to manual, paper-based workflows in mass production factories. Digitization is the way forward to Industry 4.0. Because that’s the key to an Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) of world-class level (85%). In reality, most plants today have an OEE closer to 60%. We believe the solution lies in a digital manufacturing platform that supports all plant work processes and utilizes advanced technologies like Machine Learning, IoT, AI and mobile. In this whitepaper, we will show you how such a digital manufacturing platform could work by describing three manufacturing processes: Task Management, Deviation Management and Root Cause Analysis, and how digitalization of these processes can help you achieve an OEE of world-class level.
