What defines cognitive manufacturing maturity? Our study found three stages of cognitive manufacturing maturity. We call those organizations in the earliest stage Observers, followed by Starters and Actives, respectively. These groups differ on two key characteristics: the presence of an overall strategy for cognitive manufacturing, and degree of strategic execution of multiple projects that enable higher project success and significantly fewer failed projects. Strategy is the crucial enabler of higher maturity. How do manufacturers get beyond the obstacles and barriers to increase cognitive manufacturing maturity? The obstacles encountered by our respondents are tied to organizational maturity. Overcoming them is fundamental to increase cognitive manufacturing success. In this report, we’ll first describe cognitive computing and how it gives rise to cognitive manufacturing. Then, we’ll review specific study findings and recommend actions for electronics executives.

For nearly two decades, analysts, journalists, and industry experts have warned manufacturers about the consequences of a disconnect between the shop floor (the production line) and the top floor (senior management up to C-suite). With all that has been written on the subject, it's surprising that few manufacturers have even tried to connect the shop floor to the top floor to enhance the extended supply chain.

For manufacturers of baked goods and snacks, the need for flexible, high-quality coding and marking solutions has never been greater. The wide array of packaging types and materials already in use today — combined with the SKU proliferation driven by consumer demands — means manufacturers have to print expiration codes and lot numbers on multiple substrates in multiple areas/orientations on their packaging lines. These codes need to be clear, precise and readable by both humans and machines to ensure customer safety and satisfaction. They must also provide traceability in the event of a recall. This white paper from Domino looks at the types of printing technology available today and discusses their various advantages and disadvantages in bakery line applications.

Until recently, many high-tech manufacturers – especially small and medium-sized businesses – have been able to survive by applying 80% of their operational focus to 20% or less of their critical customers and suppliers. That was then. The new mandate from channel masters is for more intense, collaborative relationships with fewer suppliers.

In today’s competitive embedded markets, manufacturers need to find ways to differentiate without adversely impacting development time and cost. This is particularly true in relation to embedded devices that are designed for use by consumers. As such products become more sophisticated, user interaction via traditional switches, dials, and basic displays becomes less desirable for a number of reasons.
