The Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) concept came from the idea that from design to production, a part can be fully simulated and the optimal production process selected. The production process can be fully automated; the human interaction is done in the initial design and production constraints and parameters. The systems then take the raw material from the initial state to the end state.
Dr. Heinz Derenbach, the Executive Vice President Technical and Engineering in the Corporate Sector for Information Systems and Services of Bosch GmbH said, “In an extreme vision, this unfinished material already knows for which customer it is intended and carries with it all the information about where and when it will be processed. Once the material is in the machine, the material itself records any deviations from the standard process, determines when it’s ‘done,’ and knows how to get to its customer.”
The decentralization of computer systems is also important. Each system has to have adequate intelligence and autonomy to carry out its tasks with as little information as possible from the central systems, or the complexity of the system becomes impossible to scale. This requires new ways of designing controls and integrating devices as well as new manufacturing processes.
The benefits of distributed autonomous systems will be local manufacturing that can reduce supply chain length and increase customization by having on-demand manufacturing done closer to the customer. This will reduce the shipping costs of the final product and increase the availability of products to more markets. From an economic perspective this will create more manufacturing jobs since there will be a greater number of shops making more products.
According to Rick Moran, COO of System Insights, “To achieve a full CPS implementation, the first step is to understand our current manufacturing processes and how the machinists and operators are making parts and running the equipment. This first step is called tribal knowledge capture. We must learn from the people and the machines how to configure, setup, and adjust the processes to make every part perfect and make the processes repeatable.”

For decades, the state of the art in engineering required drawings to be sent to a machine shop to check the efficacy of a design by manufacturing a prototype. Costing thousands – to, in some cases, millions – of dollars, and taking weeks or months for delivery, the process has been notoriously inefficient. If a prototype doesn’t function correctly, it is literally and figuratively sent “back to the drawing board”.
San Francisco has become known as the tech mecca, and Silicon Valley is now home to many of the world’s biggest technology companies and service providers, from Apple to Google and Facebook. The constant expansion of the region’s technology elite is driving demand for construction of new headquarters, storage facilities, server rooms and more. VIATechnik is an engineering services and consultancy group that has seen huge success from its hubs in Chicago and Manila, and has now expanded to take up a new home in San Francisco to help define the next era in the digital gold rush.
Rockhill Partners, a company that specializes in investing in early-stage companies in the science and technology industries, has just announced that they have retained Private Equity Headhunters LLC for its executive recruiting needs for its new portfolio companies.
Interior design can be a challenge at the best of times- it takes dedication, intuition and technical savvy to be able to design a space that flows, suits the needs of its users and feels like a welcoming environment. For businesses, this is even more difficult, as the need for partitions creates even more pressure to keep them from becoming a maze of cubicles. IMT Modular Partitions provide flexible, reusable and customizable partitions that can be adapted to fit the needs of the business at that time, and can be moved and redesigned in order to flexibly accommodate how the company evolves.

Power problems are often experienced outside the major cities in Melbourne where a three-phase power converter is often not available or is expensive to connect. A three-phase converter, which is essentially a device that converts single-phase electric power to three-phase, is seen as an effective solution to power efficiency issues. Generally speaking, power converters are deemed to be as much as 95% efficient.
