In any manufacturing sector, standardization of assembly processes and sequencing is a critical tool for honing processes, improving efficiency and consistency, and reducing error rates. It is especially critical for today’s increasingly complex and customized medical devices.
That customization presents significant challenges. For each variation in a prosthetic or pacemaker, there are additional pain points to address. Standardization becomes increasingly elusive, and new variables are introduced that make achieving the high quality standards required of medical devices that much more difficult.
The innovative spirit that put the world on wheels lives on as advances in manufacturing technology continue to move Michigan forward as a burgeoning tech hub. At OPS Solutions, we’re proud to contribute to the growth of this sector within Michigan’s economy.
New and emerging technologies are making it possible for the automotive industry to keep moving the world forward. Our innovative projector-based AR technology is leading the movement of efficiency in the manufacturing sector, including the automotive industry, both here in the United States and abroad.
Last month, Apple CEO Tim Cook introduced the iPhone X and iPhone 8. These devices were tailor-made for Apple’s new augmented reality (AR) platform, ARKit—a vital part of the company’s new iOS 11 software, which allows developers to create apps that integrate digital experiences with the physical world.
This could mean anything from testing out a piece of furniture in your living room to playing video games that become part of your physical environment, all through your phone screen. The possibilities are endless, and big businesses like Apple are already anticipating what the future of augmented reality could hold.
In the never-ending pursuit of perfection, manufacturers are constantly looking for ways to make every component better. The bedrock of every manufacturer is quality. In order to be considered valuable, any new tool or technology used to enhance efficiency and boost productivity must do so without sacrificing quality.
While different industries and manufacturing environments may have varying practices and priorities, no manufacturing pro will dispute the importance of high-quality training.
Great training leads to a safer, more productive and more efficient working environment, and employees who are confident and capable contributors.
Manufacturing decision-makers are always on the lookout for training innovations and improvements, and one of the most exciting new and effective types of training tools on the market delivers plenty of both: enterprise augmented reality.
The last few decades have seen a steady trend toward more automation in manufacturing. Sophisticated robots have gradually replaced human workers on many factory floors and assembly lines, as manufacturers work to reduce error rates and improve cycle times. Given that long-term trend, what is happening today (particularly in the automotive manufacturing space) may seem surprising: in certain circumstances, humans are replacing robots.
After recently attending Automate 2017 in Chicago, our team is going back on the road—this time to Indianapolis for Siemens PLM Connection 2017, an annual conference held specifically for PLM World members, partners and employees. Here’s a look at what we have in store for this year’s attendees.
