Ft. Lauderdale, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/03/2013 -- The current issue of Automation.com featured manufacturing journalist, TR Cutler reflecting on the past-paced, ever-changing elements of automation impacting manufacturing, material handling, and logistics. Cutler commented, “Reviewing authored features provides a fascinating insight auguring trends for 2014. The growth of the companies profiled by Automation.com clearly reflects a strong new market demand.”
Cutler noted, “The team automation consultative approach of Trilogiq USA is ground zero and for 2014, the company will introduce a new fast-acting, short time-commitment version of a kaizen event. Finding rapid solutions with measurable impacts are part of the 2014 model for this progressive company.”
“Ultriva, based in Cupertino, CA, implemented a global demand driven manufacturing model by providing full visibility, scheduling, and sequencing of production of customer orders. The company best known for electronic kanban, advanced an automation concept of End to End Pull (or E2E Pull). The recognition of E2E Pull portends major growth for the company in 2014,” reported Cutler.
Industry is on the threshold of the fourth industrial revolution. Driven by the Internet, the real and virtual worlds are growing closer and closer together. Industrial production of the future will be characterized by the strong individualization of products under the conditions of highly flexible (large series) production, the extensive integration of customers and business partners in business and value-added processes, and the linking of production and high-quality services leading to so-called hybrid products.
The prognosis for more automation innovation in 2014 is axiomatic and reporting on transformative companies like these will illuminate the possibilities of great efficiency, productivity, and profitability.
