Must Watch Manufacturers In 2017
2017 is probably the year where manufacturing technologies will be at their fastest. For one, manufacturers are rushing to include advances in technology, such as artificial intelligence and advanced analytics, in their manufacturing processes. Needless to say, the impact of these new technologies is changing the manufacturing sector altogether.
You also have to keep in mind that global political climate matters too since they also impact the sector. Of note are the recent changes in administration in the US and European politics, especially the Brexit vote. For a deeper look into these and more manufacturing trends to watch out for in 2017, read on.
Trade Tensions – Recent political changes in both the US and Europe have put the freedom of international trade in question. One of the example of change that happened is the presidency of Donald Trump. And based on the statements issued by his administration, he is not at all keen on some of the trade deals made by past administrations.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership or also known as TTP is also one of the trade deals wherein the administration of Donald Trump is not eager with. Donald Trump is not eager with the TTP as a trade deal, thus, it is now good as dead. The other deal at risk is the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), a deal with Europe. The future of the TTIP is still not sure and is still uncertain even though it is not yet dead. However, the biggest political change that has happened to Europe is the withdrawal of UK to the European union. Known as Brexit, this withdrawal has more than complicated trade between the UK and continental Europe. Another bad thing from this withdrawal is that, many European countries has also been affected by the withdrawal of UK from European Union. The negotiation of companies with other companies is also very important so that relationship with each other will become normal. In order for companies and businesses to have a good relationship with each other, it is important that these small manufacturers will adapt new business environment.
The CMMS can also be called as the Computerized Maintenance Management System will surely have a great makeover in the year 2017. To keep the manufacturing process moving, businesses must conduct routine maintenance. Repairing a manufactured tool and fixing a broken window can be comparable in this process. Sometimes, the maintenance that a company can offer is not enough, thus, it is really important that the maintenance increases its efficiency, profits and the production line’s lifespan.
Maintenance data are now a part of the CMMS system.
