Is your shop slammed? How to deliver more jobs quicker.
Up until recently, manufacturers only had to worry about designing, manufacturing, selling and servicing their products.

It is not enough to only be a manufacturer—customers want more out of their key relationships, and they want the ability to optimize and maximize the performance of whatever product they purchase. These customers are looking to manufacturers to provide that added level of technology, enabled by Industry 4.0 technologies in order for users to track and analyze usage and performance, whether the product is a tire, an air conditioner or refrigerator. Manufacturers not only have to consider designing such capabilities into their products, they also need to consider how innovative new Industry 4.0 capabilities can help improve and optimize their own manufacturing processes.
