Managing Product Costs in the Face of Complexity and Globalization
Post a comment
Manufacturing organizations have faced a growing challenge of delivering products on time and to cost over the past decade, as product lifecycles and value chains have become increasingly complex. Even in the face of constant pressure to drive down costs, globalization and competition have led the design and manufacture of any given product or assembly to become distributed geographically as well as across organizational boundaries in the extended supply chain.
Robots Are Everywhere
Robots are moving out of their traditional industrial manufacturing environment. You’ll now find robots doing assembly side-by-side with humans, working in a wide range of warehouse duties, and moving up and down the halls of healthcare facilities. Best of all, the cost of robots is coming down.
Custom Wooden Boats Are Eminently Functional
When you’re in the custom transportation business and designing cars, planes, or boats to meet one person’s needs, taste, or budget, you never know what’s going to come through the door next. That’s the challenge facing Van Dam Custom Boats of Boyne City, Mich., but it’s one the company relishes.
The Rise of Constructable BIM
Constructable Building Information Modeling -- It's an interactive 3D blueprint. It's everyone using the same set of plans. It's designing a building virtually. It's no longer just a tool for architects and design engineers.
The Power of CFD Simulation Early in Product Design
Time is of the essence in today's global marketplace, and by enabling design engineers to conduct what-if analysis and progress their designs quickly, they are able to provide products that offer a great combination of functionality and high reliability with a great price.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
Researchers have developed a hybrid energy harvester for generating electricity from multiple spectrums of solar energy.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
These futuristic military robots will help soldiers and other military personnel better perform their duties.
Icon Labs has developed a whitepaper to help determine the type of cybersecurity needed based on the type of device.
