Is Automation Really Taking Jobs?

As we all know, there has been much talk about automation in the manufacturing sector. Most of this automation has been geared toward replacing repetitive tasks, such as sorting of parts, by robots. Some manufacturers and employees in the field have expressed concerns and skepticism toward automation of these tasks. I pose the nay-sayers and skeptics one question. Why the negativity?

Cloud Solutions in industrial plants

In today’s world, one of the few sectors which cloud computing has not penetrated on a large scale is in industrial plants. Many companies are still wary of a remote platform which operates from outside their facilities, despite its undeniable success in other economic sectors and the tremendous advantages it offers.

Do you need to make more informed decisions?

Nearly everything we interact with is connected to the internet. This connectivity is spurring a widespread digital transformation. From our phones to our appliances and the machines that fabricate them, today’s level of connectivity was unimaginable a decade ago.

Adaptable requirements management

The digital transformation process brings with it a lot of uncertainty. How do I know what tasks and changes I need to carry out in my organization to transform it? It’s impossible to know beforehand. How do I know where I will end up in my transformation process once it is finished? It’s impossible to have a clear idea at the beginning.
