Machines often form the backbone of businesses. Machinery breakdowns are extremely costly and there's never really a good time for these breakdowns. IN response to this challenge, companies have explored a variety of strategies - even preventive maintenance programs - to increase machine uptime. But every strategy - even a combination of strategies - has had only limited success.

With your manufacturing operations already running close to capacity, the traditional ways of gaining new capacity is to make large capital investments, or to outsource some of the new manufacturing demand. These are challenging tactics as getting new resources in line will take time and there is no guarantee that the numbers will continue to climb. You do, however, have a third option available to you.

The current trend in manufacturing is towards tailor-made products in smaller lots with shorter delivery times. This change may lead to frequent production modifications resulting in increased machine downtime, higher production cost, product waste—and the need to rework faulty products. To satisfy the customer demand behind this trend, manufacturers must move quickly to new production models. Quality assurance is the key area that IT must support. At the same time, the traceability of products becomes central to compliance as well as quality. Traceability can be achieved by interconnecting data sources across the factory, analyzing historical and streaming data for insights, and taking immediate action to control the entire end-to-end process. Doing so can lead to noticeable cost reductions, and gains in efficiency, process reliability, and speed of new product delivery. Additionally, analytics helps manufacturers find the best setups for machinery.

The success of your bus fleet business depends on your ability to keep vehicles on the road while finding innovative new ways to maximise cost efficiency. Yet 70% of fleet operators are concerned the costs of new technology may outweigh the benefits, which is why two-thirds (69%) don’t want to upgrade while current machinery is still operational. 77% of fleet managers also say their maintenance staff would benefit from extra training. This is why we’ve created Shell lubricants for Driveline: a suite of high-performing lubricants and expert advice that adds up to more than the sum of its parts – making your current bus fleet more efficient, profitable and competitive. Putting this into perspective, customers leveraging Shell Technical Services have seen a marked improvement in their operations. This has delivered over $68M in documented value savings to Shell’s B2B customers.

Profitability in the marine and power generation sectors is affected by numerous factors, some of which have a dramatic influence on operational costs. Because many of these influences are external, operators must closely manage those that are within their control to strengthen profit margins. At the top of the priorities list is efficiency, both in terms of processes and physical machinery. Even the smallest details can have an effect on profit, so controlling waste and maximizing uptime at every opportunity is crucial. To understand the benefits of how ABB coated nozzle rings apply to your operations, and how your business could realize significant new efficiencies download this whitepaper today.

The Role of Additive Manufacturing in Production of the Future Additive manufacturing (AM) is the process of adding layers of material — most commonly plastics or resins, and increasingly metals — to produce products according to precise digital plans. With AM, products are produced using only the material necessary, therefore minimizing scrap. Modern digital technology is transforming every industry, including manufacturing. Yet in The Rise of Smart Operations, a survey of machinery manufacturers conducted by UPS and IDC, roughly one-half of the respondents said their digital or “smart” operations were lagging the competition or were at a significant disadvantage. Manufacturers will also find practical solutions they can consider implementing today to incorporate smarter operations in their production processes of the future.

Facing increasing customer demands for equipment uptime and rapid service response, many companies servicing critical equipment and machinery are turning to on-customer-site spare parts inventory strategies. To maximize the benefits of this approach, leading companies are 'reverse engineering' their service chains to build restocking plans and manage performance based on parts consumption, not distribution, patterns.

When products are bought off the shelf, they are easy to price. But what happens when every product has to be configured to create an entirely bespoke solution? Our client manufactured sophisticated industrial machinery that needed to be configured to each customer, which made each quote a complex task. Sales teams had to somehow translate the customers' complex requirements into a solution; selecting the right products, features, and components; and ensuring that the end result would be not only compatible but also deliverable. Also, the quote frequently had to include various offer variations and price points. The conversation about pricing could only begin once all of this had been discussed, agreed upon, and approved.

For manufacturers, this IDC white paper examines the current and future Internet of Things (IoT) imperative for the following discrete manufacturing industries: automotive, aerospace and defense, high tech, and industrial machinery. We highlight IoT-enabled scenarios — those possible both now and in an Industry 4.0 future with smart manufacturing. (IDC defines IoT as a network of uniquely identifiable endpoints or “things” that communicate without human interaction using IP connectivity.) These scenarios more tightly integrate “things” with other information, processes, and even value chains. Further, we demonstrate how companies in these industries leverage technology to create business value today and disruptive opportunities tomorrow.

In today’s market, discrete manufacturers must stay focused on traditional objectives — increasing uptime and throughput in the plant and closely managing costs throughout their operations. At the same time, they must also create and offer more integrated products and services and even new business models to enhance the customer experience. These new offerings incorporate increasing amounts of technology — including Internet of Things. Indeed, by 2018, nearly one-third of industry leaders will be disrupted by competitors that are digitally-enabled.

Like many manufacturers, your shop floor operations may be challenged with inefficient standard processes, unpredictable downtime, and difficulties with machinery maintenance. A manufacturing execution system (MES) can help make the most of your shop floor’s capabilities, with tools that can identify under-performing and high-performance machines, and then optimize asset utilization accordingly. Engineers can design, refine, and implement better work processes, and operations professionals can improve preventive maintenance and response times. The result is less downtime, less scrap, more productivity, and lower cost. With the real-time information of an MES, you can transform the shop floor into an important contributor that drives the strategic direction of your business, differentiates your brand, and positions your company as a market leader.
