It is very inevitable that as time goes by, manufacturing technologies evolves quickly and it seems like they are going to be at their fastest this 2017. One of the reasons why manufacturing technologies becomes continuously fast is because they want to include in their manufacturing processes the artificial intelligence and advanced analytics that would surely include advances in technology. Indeed, one of the reasons why the manufacturing sector changes is the impact of these new technologies.
One factor that also impacts the sector is the global political climate. Of note are the recent changes in administration in the US and European politics, especially the Brexit vote. 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. It has also been known that the administration of Donald Trump is not eager to know some of the trade deals that happened in the past administration.
One of the deals wherein Donald Trump is not eager with is the Trans-Pacific Partnership which is a trade between the US and 12 Pacific-Rim countries. The TTP is now good as dead because of the administration of Donald Trump. The other deal at risk is the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), 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 continental Europe and UK will surely have a hard time with regard to withdrawals since UK has already withdraw from the European Union. The withdrawal of U from European Union has also affected the relationship between several European countries. In fact, experts believe that companies will need to negotiate with each other for up to a decade to normalize relations. In the meantime, small manufacturers must adapt to the new business environment, or go out of business.
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 could be anything from fixing a broken window to repairing manufacturing equipment. Regardless of the type of maintenance a company undertakes, maintenance increases efficiency, profits, and the lifespan of a production line.
Maintenance data are now a part of the CMMS system.
