Humans have always been engaged in some type of manufacturing, from the days when the first prehistoric hunters and gatherers created tools to make their jobs easier. Today, the way we manufacture goods has changed enormously.
Manufacturing in the 21st century is now automated and has the lowest levels of human involvement in history. What does this mean for you? Read on to learn how Industry 4.0 and digital manufacturing will impact your organization and how you can weather these changes to stay agile and competitive.
Merit Solutions will be presenting a How2 session at D365UG / AXUG Summit 2017 next month related to Microsoft Dynamics 365 / AX for manufacturing companies. If you are attending Summit – be sure to join us for this session or visit us in booth #410.

The right business decision can mean the difference between success and failure, especially in the manufacturing space. However, making the right decision can be challenging. There’s a formula for making the right decision: relevant information plus time. Here’s the problem, though. You can’t always get all of the information you need in what is usually a limited amount of time in which to make a decision.
Mobile apps can solve this problem – they enable manufacturers to access relevant, timely data when they need it most.
Since the advent of manufacturing, every business has wanted to be more efficient. Countless authors developed theories of how to be more efficient (and in turn, improve the bottom line). Some companies have succeeded in making their manufacturing operations more efficient, while others continue to search for the magic key that will enable them to produce the greatest number of goods at the lowest possible cost.
Nowadays, firms don’t need lecturers or books to make them more efficient. Mobile apps can help them achieve unprecedented gains in efficiency – read on to learn how.
Every business wants to be more productive. Higher productivity means higher revenue (which in and of itself is desirable). The quest for increased productivity is never-ending, especially in manufacturing. Highly productive shop floor employees boost the company’s bottom line. What if there was a tool to make those employees more productive? There is. Mobile apps can improve shop floor employees’ productivity, making the whole firm more profitable.
What if you had a tool that would give you total visibility to what happened on the shop floor or in the field? You’d be able to tweak productivity, efficiency, and gain a competitive advantage in your industry. A mobile app can give you all of those things by increasing visibility on the shop floor. Read on to learn how it can help your company achieve greater success.
When many people think of mobile apps, the first thing that comes to mind is consumer-oriented applications. However, there are many apps developed for business use, including for deployment within the manufacturing industry. These apps streamline the manufacturing process. Read on to learn what apps make the manufacturing industry more competitive and efficient.
Imagine a manufacturing facility in which orders were fulfilled more accurately and faster. What if, with a click, you could track inventory down to the exact location in the warehouse? Here’s another scenario: when a piece of equipment breaks down, a sensor alerts an engineer that it needs to be repaired. These scenes aren’t something out of a science fiction movie or book. Today’s mobile technologies are making these scenarios a reality. Read on to learn more about how mobile technologies are making the manufacturing industry more efficient and effective.
