Manufacturing 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. One of the recent changes that has happened is the change in administration in the US and European politics. You surely need to read this article in order to be updated on what is ahead of your 2017.
Trade Tensions – Recent political changes in both the US and Europe have put the freedom of international trade in question. In the US, for instance, Donald Trump was sworn in as president in January 2017. Donald Trump had also issued a statement that he is not eager on some of the trade meals that happened in the past administration.
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. The TTP is now good as dead because of the administration of Donald Trump. Another trade which is at risk in the administration of Donald Trump is the Transatlantic Trade and Partnership or simply known as TTIP which is a deal with Europe. Although the TTIP is not yet dead like the TTP, its future is still not sure. The withdrawal of UK to the European union has probably brought the biggest political change in Europe. The withdrawal of UK from the European Union has surely made withdrawals complicated especially between UK and the 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. In fact, experts believe that companies will need to negotiate with each other for up to a decade to normalize relations. 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. This can be compared to fixing a broken window to repairing a manufactured tool. 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.
The CMMS system now has a goal which is to store, track and record maintenance data.
