How Machine Learning Improves Manufacturing Inspections, Product Quality & Supply Chain Visibility
"Manufacturers’ most valuable data is generated on shop floors daily, bringing with it the challenge of analyzing it to find prescriptive insights fast – and an ideal problem for machine learning to solve.

Manufacturing is the most data-prolific industry there is, generating on average 1.9 petabytes of data every year according to the McKinsey Global Insititute. Supply chains, sourcing, factory operations, and the phases of compliance and quality management generate the majority of data."

Reinventing After-Sales Service In A Subscription Economy World
"91% of manufacturers are investing in predictive analytics in the next 12 months, and 50% consider Artificial Intelligence (AI) a major planned investment for 2019 to support their subscription-based business models.
New subscription business models and smart, connected products are freeing manufacturers up from competing for one-time transaction revenues to recurring revenues based on subscriptions.
By 2020, manufacturers are predicting 67% of their product portfolios will be smart, connected products according to an excellent study by Capgemini."

10 Ways Machine Learning Is Revolutionizing Manufacturing In 2018
"Improving semiconductor manufacturing yields up to 30%, reducing scrap rates, and optimizing fab operations are is achievable with machine learning. Attaining up to a 30% reduction in yield detraction in semiconductor manufacturing, reducing scrap rates based on machine learning-based root-cause analysis and reducing testing costs using AI optimization are the top three areas where machine learning will improve semiconductor manufacturing. McKinsey also found that AI-enhanced predictive maintenance of industrial equipment will generate a 10% reduction in annual maintenance costs, up to a 20% downtime reduction and 25% reduction in inspection costs. Source: Smartening up with Artificial Intelligence (AI) – What’s in it for Germany and its Industrial Sector? (52 pp., PDF, no opt-in) McKinsey & Company."

2018 – are we feeling the manufacturing revolution?
"Clearly there is a lot of work yet to be done by many manufacturers around the world. We have discussed such things as IIOT, ERP and Servitization in this article. However, there are many more tech drivers which directly affect manufacturers. Areas such as artificial intelligence, Automation/Robotics, Additive Manufacturing and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) will also change the face of manufacturing."

Kenandy Customers Find a New Home With Rootstock - by @erp_cindyjutras
"So, given the similarities between the two, this begs the ultimate question regarding products moving forward: Will the resulting combined company continue to develop, maintain and support two distinct products? And should it? Mr. Garrehy has already made it clear that the Kenandy product will live on, and has further speculated that the combined company will likely have two distinct product lines, serving at least somewhat different markets. While not cast in stone, perhaps the Kenandy ERP will move in the direction of light manufacturing and distribution, while the Rootstock product will support heavy-duty, more complex manufacturing."

AGCO: Driving a Digital Manufacturing Transformation - by @lcecere
"The final factory inspection quality teams disliked having to get off of the large pieces of equipment to complete inspection lists on a computer. In 2012, this turned into an IT problem: the tablets were being dropped from the tops of tractors with no warranty available. This was no small problem: the rugged tablet was $3,000 to replace. At a Kaizen event of the quality team, IT came up with using Google Glass as an alternative."

The State of Manufacturing: A conversation with Jason Blessing, CEO of Plex Systems - by @dealarchitect
"The first is the fact that we’re creating great new jobs with long-term career potential. I get to visit a lot of factories, because they’re Plex customers, and the jobs that they’re hiring for are definitely more high-end jobs that require more computer skills; jobs that handle some of the automation and more technical aspects of their manufacturing operations. There are a lot of unfilled jobs out there and new opportunities. The fact that there aren’t people to take on those opportunities is, I think, quite remarkable. There’s just not the skill set out there."

Women in Manufacturing & Technology At PowerPlex 2016 - @erp_cindyjutras
"On the people side, amidst an overall skills shortage in manufacturing, women have so much to offer. Yet while our ranks are growing slowly, we remain a small minority. It is very challenging for a woman to get ahead and make it to the top and we need to support each other along the way. The best way to accelerate gender diversity in the worlds of manufacturing and technology is to create a supportive environment and highlight success."

Takeaways From Panorama's 2015 Manufacturing ERP Report - by @erickimberling
"The mix of ERP vendors among manufacturers is very different than in other industries. Our original 2015 ERP Report, published earlier this year, showed SAP, Oracle, and Microsoft Dynamics leading the pack among ERP vendors in all industries. However, Microsoft Dynamics shows the largest market share in the manufacturing space which is quickly followed by Epicor and Infor. This proves that manufacturers have unique – and oftentimes complex – business requirements that aren’t as well met by all ERP vendors. It also highlights the importance of an independent and thorough ERP software selection process."

Enterprise Odd Couple: Plex Systems Partners with Workday - by @erp_cindyjutras
"At first glance these two might seem like the proverbial odd couple. As another ERP vendor, Workday would appear to be a competitor. But it is not, because Workday is not a solution that is focused on the needs of manufacturers. And companies that “make things” are the only targets for Plex Systems. So if Workday isn’t for manufacturers, why would any Plex customer be interested in connecting to it? Because typically corporate headquarters doesn’t make anything, but might have sophisticated accounting requirements to support global operations. This partnership is all about delivering a pre-packaged 2-tier ERP."

What it Takes to Succeed in Manufacturing Now and in the Future - by @erickimberling
"The dichotomy between successful and struggling organizations is becoming more pronounced as the technological landscape changes. Over the last 20 years I’ve been in the consulting industry, I’ve been both directly and indirectly involved with thousands of companies and executives that have given me a unique insight as to why some organizations are better equipped to succeed than others. While it would be nice if everyone benefited comparably from new enterprise technologies and opportunities, unfortunately, the benefits of new technology are not evenly distributed."
