After Jan completed his presentation, several questions were raised that are shared. We hope this information is helpful with your decision process to pick the right MES that is based your unique business requirements.
As the end of this pandemic starts to become more of a reality, I suspect many of the changes that have been implemented will likely last to post-pandemic times. Based on this expectation, in a bold move, here is a list of my predictions on how the manufacturing industry will look like in 2021!
At Excelerate Innovation 2020, iBASEt launched Solumina iSeries, a Cloud-native platform furthering our commitment to Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is one of the platforms iBASEt is supporting that is very popular among manufacturers.
This media alert announced Kim Archibald, head of North America solution engineering at iBASEt, will lead a discussion on how Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) have become a central part of digital operations platforms.
Every member of the enterprise can benefit from the iSeries, from line workers to top-level decision-makers. Today, technology innovation is accelerating like never before, and when it’s properly harnessed, as in the iSeries, we’re just starting to see the amazing things it lets us do.
For two days, some 400 customers and guests joined our online conference to learn about the new Solumina iSeries, and how it can accelerate and simplify the move to digitally transform complex, highly engineered manufacturing operations.
We had the opportunity to hear from Jan Snoeij on the topic of IT/OT convergence. If you are a bit unclear on what this concept really means and its importance as part of a digital transformation strategy, it might be worth 30 minutes of your time to hear this presentation.
This press release announced iBASEt officially launching Solumina iSeries, the industry’s first agile platform for industrial manufacturers that leverages dozens of pre-configured microservices to simplify how complex manufacturing operations are executed.
Between COVID-19, the very visible impact of climate change, and the global geopolitical environment, just automating business processes will not deliver the benefits many companies seek from their Digital Transformation initiatives.
Since COVID-19 has impacted all our customers across their entire value chain, most have already adapted systems to support their internal teams, as well as how they now work with suppliers, including iBASEt. Here are a few insights we have learned that can help with your transition to providing and receiving remote consultation services.
This press release announced online events will feature the launch of iSeries, the company’s next-generation solutions for advanced manufacturing operation and will showcase presentations focused on customers’ digital strategies to improve operational performance.
In my last blog post, I examined the evaluation choice of what OT architecture is best between a Best-of-Breed or single-vendor suite approach. In this post, I will continue this discussion and focus more on how this decision can play out for those implementing a new Manufacturing Execution System (MES).
There are three ways manufacturers are adapting to the “new normal” of today’s coronavirus conditions – each involving the adoption of digital strategies to overcome the business conditions that COVID-19 now requires.
This press release announced robust demand for digital transformation across model-based manufacturing and sustainment operations drives hiring for new sales, finance, and European region leadership for iBASEt.
This media alert announced that iBASEt will sponsor a webcast, hosted by the MOM Institute, that will look at how the Request for Proposal (RFP) process must adapt, given that legacy MES and Quality applications have become monolithic dinosaurs.
As we mark the halfway point through 2020, it certainly has been a year of disruption, extreme challenge, and rapid change. Technology has played a central role in solving issues, creating new opportunities, and accelerating the rate of change that is now possible.
Since airing this presentation, we received many questions on what was involved and how challenges were overcome, so we thought it would be helpful to share these insights for others that are either starting or in the middle of their digital MRO transformation.
For companies that accept they need to weave all their loose threads together into a digital cloth, here is a blueprint on how to begin that process as part of their journey towards an Industry 4.0 future.
Both OT and IT are being transformed to create a digital infrastructure that is greater than the sum of its parts. As a far-reaching, critical component of how manufacturers operate, this synergy is heralding in a new era of manufacturing execution systems operating as an enterprise application.
A Digital Thread provides the data framework, and the reality is that multiple threads are coexisting, which sometimes resemble a tangled ball of virtual string. The solution to untangling these multiple threads and providing true cross-silo and multi-enterprise data flows is to weave the digital threads into a Digital Cloth.
Given the complexity of manufacturing operations, different solutions will work better depending upon your needs. However, and out of the box solution offers a compelling option that can get your problem solved much faster and offer a far lower Total Cost of Ownership than any toolkit can promise.
An Agile MES application has an architecture that allows an implementation team (or those tasked with performing updates or future maintenance) to dynamically perform updates to capabilities quickly to the actual software itself – in addition to how it is deployed.
The deeper that a company falls into a Technical Debt “hole,” the harder it is to climb out. The way to break free of this cycle is to start now. As you evaluate the next enterprise operations system, you have to make a choice. Will you own your enterprise solution, or will it own you?
This media alert announced iBASEt's customer, Patria / Belgium Engine Center (PBEC), will host a webinar explaining how they are implementing a digital transformation strategy of their Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul operations.
On Wednesday, April 29th, 2020, iBASEt hosted a webcast that presented a compelling case to evaluate if you are still running a legacy Manufacturing Execution System (MES). We thought it would be helpful to share feedback from questions raised by those in attendance.
With the world facing a massive public health crisis, new drugs and medical devices are required in large quantities. With big pressure to get product out, people are taking shortcuts. Fortunately, many new enterprise software tools have emerged to better manage regulatory compliance reporting
As you consider your digital transformation journey, here are three cultural factors to consider that will help improve employee adoption and accelerate the timeframe for implementing change at your organization.
This media alert announced that webcast will be presented, explaining why legacy MES applications with a monolithic architecture have become outdated and are being replaced by modern solutions that can be implemented in 90 days or less.
During times of dynamic change – we know what we want, but sometimes the existing infrastructure can’t keep up with expectations. This is happening with all the Industrial Transformation initiatives now in deployment. It is also the case with what KPIs are being measured and how that measurement is being achieved.
Now might not be a good time to consider venturing into a brand-new product line. By doubling down on what you already have, the learning curve is minimal, the relationship already exists, and your precious time can be focused on identifying new opportunities.
LNS Research recently conducted an in-depth study of the factors that separated aerospace and defense (A&D) companies that have been successful with their industrial transformation from the rest. From reading their findings, several conclusions can be drawn from the data.
Implementing a digitalization strategy in the industrial sector compared to the consumer marketplace is far more difficult. This article will take a closer look at how manufacturing is changing as a result of this transformation.
As the world fights the coronavirus, it is quickly becoming evident that “business as usual” no longer applies. New business models will be evaluated, and massive “pivots” may be needed to meet the evolving needs of our society. The Digital Enterprise is best poised to be part of the new “non-normal” environment we now operate in.
Today, we face an extreme market disruption, and in times of economic uncertainty or decline, the investment made in new or existing IT systems can have a really big impact on how companies are able to weather the storm.
McKinsey has been giving heavy emphasis to the need to forming a digital B2B ecosystem in MRO and manufacturing. One of the points stressed was the importance and value of creating a digital ecosystem that spans the entire supply chain.
