Higher productivity for profits: How manufacturers are using technology including cobots to minimize or even eliminate repetitive tasks.

Critical for your success in manufacturing: Saving time and money to enjoy profits. In order to achieve this goal, it’s critical to eliminate repetitive and unnecessary tasks.

Successful manufacturers don’t use counterproductive manual processes.

However, despite innovative software manual, data entry collection of date costs employers time and money.

More than 40 percent of manufacturing employees are forced each week to waste 25 percent of their time and energy in performing manual, repetitive duties according to published reports.


So the solution is to eliminate obstacles by automatically collecting, uploading, synching data.

It would also improve employee morale. Reports indicate nearly 60 percent of such affected workers believe streamlining from automation would free up six hours or more of their workweek.

Managerial productivity would also improve from better automated processes in approvals, sign offs, status updates and confirmation requests.

Automation isn’t the only route to increased productivity by minimizing repetitive and manual tasks. So is modern robotic technology with artificial technology (AI) reduces injuries, labor expenses and unnecessarily boring functions that inhibit worker enthusiasm.


AI also enables increased modernization with cobots. That’s the shortened term for collaborative robots. Cobots allow for a direct human-robot relationship.

Why Lean Manufacturing Principles Haven’t Always Worked — Many businesses love cutting waste and costs for profits by using lean manufacturing principles, but many global manufacturers have failed. Surprisingly, the companies used the popular Six Sigma, Kaizen and Value Stream Mapping. Here’s why.

How Nanotechnology Is Changing Our World — From chemistry to engineering, nanotechnology continues to enhance our daily lives. Here’s a brief history along with the fascinating uses of nanotechnology.

Growth in No Code Development Platforms – HR to Retail — No Code offers a particularly rich opportunity for organizations short on IT expertise or who have limited budgets to still have high-impact tech solutions. How non-IT pros get it done.

Successful Manufacturers Capitalize on These Tech Trends — With the increasing role of technology in manufacturing, here’s how manufacturers must invest in their future.

Artificial Intelligence: U.S. Lags Behind in Educating Students – Study — America’s educators rank just ninth among all nations in terms of preparing students for the real world of automation, according to a study released by a research group associated with The Economist magazine. Here are some solutions.
