The Risk of Niche Solutions

The advent of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platforms has made it possible for a proliferation of narrow solutions that target specific and well-defined problems. Most of the available platforms provide a development environment designed to build any kind of application, not necessarily specialized in manufacturing. Part of the value proposition of these platforms is flexibility and fast development. They...

Augmented Reality on the Production Line

Augmented reality (AR) is one of the most trending technologies associated with any Industry 4.0 or smart manufacturing initiative. No client says he’s not interested in evaluating it and understanding what benefits it could bring to his company. Most of the time, any use case being considered is associated in some way with maintenance. This is a very low hanging...

The days of a single company reaching a market leadership position on its own are over, simply because it’s not possible to compete alone in the market. And in the supply chain...

As you can imagine, as the time for the audit time approached, we concentrated more and more heavily on all the various aspects of CSIA Best Practices to verify that we were still compliant or to determine if we needed to fix something. Although this is a continuous...

Industry 4.0: Evolution or Revolution?

There’s an ongoing debate if Industry 4.0 (or Smart Manufacturing) is a revolution or just an evolution, with conference speakers bringing arguments in favor of one side or the other. Besides the fact that I personally believe the discussion is not very relevant (our world is changing and we need to adapt as fast as possible to survive or excel),...
