Fortunately, there are many ways to inspire potential young manufacturers. Here are a few ideas. Making & Keeping the Manufacturing Connection One of the key reasons MFG Day is such a success is that it gives.

It has been a little more than two years since I last summarized the topics that are keeping CEOs up at night, either thinking about challenges their organization faces or opportunities and innovations that should be explored. I ended that 2017 Insights column by stating that I looked forward to taking another look a few years down the road to see how those challenges and opportunities have changed. Well, we are now down the road! As in the past, the findings presented below are generally applicable across industry sectors (including government and other nonprofits) and to organizations of all.

Certified Packing & Crating Inc. (CP&C) is a seventeen-year-old company offering specialized packing and crating services, as well as customized product handling and packaging. Two former Intel employees, a husband and wife team, purchased CP&C in 2012, seeking a business vehicle to find stability in their post-Intel, post-parenting lives. The company is based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with around 10 employees, and serves multi-billion dollar organizations, scientific equipment makers, and art distributors. CP&C was experiencing lost revenue due to rework, inefficiencies, cash flow, and a.

Most people think that understanding and preserving our cultural heritage is mainly the concern of the social sciences and humanities, such as archaeology and art history. But physical sciences, including physics and chemistry, often play a large role as well. Determining the elemental composition, or signature, of archaeological finds or objects in museum collections can provide insight into early civilizations. For example, we can learn the origins of stone, clay and sometimes metal objects through their elemental signatures. This can tell us about where people lived and worked and who they.

Big holiday surprises do come in small packages, like quality gifts that fit easily into a stocking. Forget those generic ties for Dad or socks for Mom; well-crafted gifts created by American manufacturers can bring a smile to even the “Grinchiest” family member or friend. But it takes more than manufacturing know-how to ensure these quality products catch the eye of discerning gift-givers. Behind the scenes, the MEP National Network™ strengthens and empowers U.S. manufacturers with the resources they need to improve efficiency and market their businesses to all the “Santas” seeking the.

It’s important for everyone — manufacturers and others — to recognize the threat of cyber attacks and how to prevent them. The vulnerabilities exploited by cybercriminals can shut down your operations, requiring your company to spend thousands of dollars on enhancing security measures and reassuring customers you’re still trustworthy. One of the challenges manufacturers often face regarding cyber threats is that they're not sure how vulnerable they really are. Have you ever thought about how you can assess your company's vulnerability level? Wouldn’t it be great to be able to better understand.

Science, while important, is often thought of as, well, kind of dry in the ocular department. The visuals commonly associated with scientific endeavors are charts and graphs, which are great if you're a scientist, but for the rest of us, they're as inscrutable as a professional poker player's face. But the truth is, science does produce some great images, especially here at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). In the past couple of weeks, we've shown you the top five blog posts and the top six news stories. Now it's time for the top seven images! They say an image is.

"I have been offered a significant increase in salary by another employer and am giving my two week notice." My guess is that this is the most common reason given when employees quit their current job. But is salary the real reason most employees quit? I have always suspected and believed that, given a fair salary, people do not quit their jobs for money. So why do they leave? I was recently drawn to explore this topic a little more deeply after reading an article about IBM Watson's latest feat. A new, proprietary IBM AI algorithm can predict with 95% accuracy which workers are about to quit.

If industrial manufacturing had a buzzword of the decade, it might be “Industry 4.0.” The concept is inescapable, yet it can be hard to define, especially for small and medium-sized manufacturers (SMMs). After all, SMMs’ capabilities, needs, and budgets look very different from the large companies who often drive the latest innovations and trends. However, Industry 4.0 is so pervasive that many smaller manufacturers know more about the technologies than they might think. Below, we define Industry 4.0, then explore ways that SMMs can and do implement it already. What Is Industry 4.0? To date,
