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.

Challenge Some SAP systems can take up to 10 days to complete a SAP system copy. That’s 10 days of unproductive time. Why? SAP does not provide the necessary tools out-of-the-box to automate and handle the process efficiently. This means you must use highly skilled SAP BASIS staff to manage the process. Manual steps, along with hundreds of configuration settings, can take days to complete—and like many organizations, you have also experienced too many delays, causing non-production systems to be unavailable, which stalls development, testing and training activities. Opportunity So you’ve concluded your SAP system copy process is hindering innovation and productivity. You’re considering automating the process to ensure system copies are available for all environments on time, every time. Benefits What are the key capabilities you actually need to address SAP system copy inefficiency once and for all?

Factory production lines know the right jig or fixture speeds production, which increases productivity. But that’s just the beginning. Well-designed tools are more ergonomic, offering both increased worker safety and productivity, as well as cost savings. Traditional machining produces heavy, costly, multi-piece tools that become an even greater liability as repetitive motion injuries erode line productivity with worker disability. Redesign means even more protracted timelines for machined parts. While essential to efficiency, accuracy and safety, jigs and fixtures are often considered a necessary evil in the overall production process. Costly, protracted timelines for machined jigs and fixtures are the culprit here, especially for the often complex designs necessary to meet unique part needs. This, along with certain complex designs that simply cannot be manufactured using traditional methods are a reality on the production floor. But there is a better way. 3D printed jigs and fixture

Illinois-based manufacturer Plano Molding sought to replace a paper-and-pencil data collection process with an automated manufacturing execution system (MES). They wanted a real-time look at production data. Many of their decisions were made based on observations and guesses rather than facts, and they needed deeper insights. To improve shop floor efficiency and anticipate and solve production issues before they occurred, Plano Molding implemented the Epicor Mattec MES system. The insights they gained into the shop floor are helping to drive bottom-line growth. Plano Molding has also seen significant scrap savings. Rather than focus on scrap percentage, the Mattec MES solution allows them to focus on higher-dollar-value products. This has led to the Plano Molding team saving $700,000 in scrap improvements. Read the success story to learn more about Plano Molding’s experience and consider how your business might benefit from a modern production system like Epicor Mattec MES.

Cooling tends to take a back seat to other concerns when server rooms and small to mid-size data centers are first built. As computing needs grow, increased heat production can compromise equipment performance and cause shutdowns. Haphazard data center expansion creates cooling inefficiencies that magnify these heat-related problems. End users may assume they need to increase cooling capacity, but this is often unnecessary. In most cases, low-cost rack cooling best practices will solve heat-related problems. Best practices optimize airflow, increase efficiency, prevent downtime and reduce costs.

When it comes to worker safety, mitigating downtime, and boosting productivity, nothing is faster than right NOW. Organizations across various industry segments — construction, food and beverage, chemical and industrial, and transportation equipment manufacturers — are juggling a mix of communication devices, slowing response times. Gaps in coverage, poor battery life and aging equipment reduce your ability to safely and efficiently meet production deadlines. The power of NOW puts instant communications at your workers’ fingertips — because when communication slows, production slows. Manufacturers today are under immense pressure to produce goods safely, efficiently and profitably. Meeting these goals requires reliable, clear voice and data communications. So the production line is always moving. So well-executed logistics exceed expectations. So materials and operations are tracked to maintain efficiency. So your most valuable assets — your people — are safe and connected. Unified tea

Digital Elektronik bought four Epson robots for the job, and these robots completed the task in just a few months. Since then Digital Elektronik has used the robots for new applications, some similar but others quite different, demonstrating a key advantage of Epson robots in being flexible and reusable. Volker Spanier, head of factory automation at Epson Germany, says, “I think this is an excellent example of how Epson robots can improve production line efficiency and complete tasks that may not even be possible by hand. It’s also great to see our robots involved in the construction of such a memorable landmark that will stand the test of time.”
