Focus on

American

M anufac turing

The Successes and Challenges of Manufacturing in the United States Manufacturing on American soil is making a comeback. Exhibiting a constant rise since 2009, the manufacturing sector achieved a peak contribution of $2.09 trillion to the economy in 2014. A strong movement is on the rise to move blue collar jobs back to the United States – the Reshoring Initiative is working hard to show people the benefits, both short and long term, of domestic production. We spoke with representatives from a number of companies who call America home. Their operations face diverse challenges from high taxation to lack of skilled labor, but all of them share optimism about the future of their businesses. And for each of them, no sum is worth moving their operations offshore.

What challenges do you face in running a manufacturing operation in the United States? The list of challenges to manufacturing operations is extensive. The welldocumented need for skilled workers is named by most repsondents as a significant barrier in sustaining or growing their businesses. Many also feel stress from taxes and duties – it is clear that government will need to take action to guarantee the ongoing success of American manufacturing.

“Competition with underpriced foreign imports and finding skilled labor.” David Boliantz, Technical Sales Engineer of Ohio Tool Works, LLC (www.ohiotoolworks.com) “One of the biggest challenges is finding qualified engineers, machinists and support technicians versed in electronic diagnostics and assembly of high precision machinery and automation systems… Also, U.S. government tax incentives are lacking in comparison with other industrial countries, particularly for small businesses. Additionally, the U.S. patent system is inefficient.” John Bannayan, President of Glebar (www.glebar.com)

12

| IMD | JULY 2015 | www.IndMacDig.com

“As the U.S. educational system has moved away from vocational training and education, we have had difficulties maintaining a skilled and dedicated manufacturing workforce. Another issue we encounter is transportation for our significant export market.” Roger Cope, President of Gehring, L.P (www.gehring.de/en/home/)

“Many, including quality employees, too many government regulations, and high taxes.”

“The USA offers many advantages, for manufacturers, however we are also faced with the high cost of maintaining a trained work force. Health Care cost is a very expensive benefit necessary to keeping qualified people.”

Byron Blunt, Sales Director of Denray Machine, Inc. (www.denray.com)

Bob O’Callaghan, General Manager of Whitney Tool Company, Inc. (www.whitneytool.com)

“One challenge we occasionally run into is capacity issues when the economy is strong. Since the recession, there have been fewer options for us to turn to and therefore sometime lead times can be a challenge for us.” Rod Myers, Vice President of Voelker Sensors, Inc. (www.vsi-oil.com)

“One of the biggest challenges faced by manufacturing today is finding qualified, trained machine operators.” Bob Davis, Global Communications Manager, Sunnen Products Company (www.sunnen.com)

“The biggest challenge we face in our industry is commoditization… This forces us all to keep a close eye on our operations to make sure we are as efficient as possible. Most importantly, we can’t rest on our laurels when it comes to innovation.” Nancy Lauseng, Marketing Manager of Jet Edge, Inc. (www.jetedge.com)


How do you view the future of American Manufacturing? Respondents remain optimistic about the future of American manufacturing, despite the challenges they face. Many of them agree that significant regulatory changes will be needed to keep America competitive with countries where labor and insurance costs are lower and industry regulations more relaxed than in the United States.

“We think the future looks positive. We see a lot more reshoring, and multinationals [are] building plants in the U.S... There is a “maker” movement that we believe will encourage careers in automation and manufacturing.” John Bannayan, President of Glebar (www.glebar.com)

“Our business was founded “The engineering and quality behind [us] are strong and by hard working, blue collar consistently improving. The availability of skilled people is Americans, with the premise of shrinking, however, and jeopardizing the ability of American quality, innovation and superior Manufacturers to meet the demands of global market.” customer service. We have David Boliantz, Technical Sales Engineer of Ohio Tool Works, LLC always stood by and protected (www.ohiotoolworks.com) our quality processes in addition to re-investing and improving our capabilities and facilities. If American Manufacturing continues placing quality first and re-invests in itself, moving forward on the principals of what manufacturing in this country was founded on we should see a rich future.” Ryan Fertig, Mktg. Manager of Strong Hold Products (www.strong-hold.com)

“Should be steady with some growth in our type of industry.” Byron Blunt, Sales Director of Denray Machine, Inc.

“With the rising cost of health insurance, product liability insurance and the number of inexpensive imports being shipped into the USA without any type of import duties it’s not going to be easy.” Jerry Kroetch, President of Scotchman Industries (www.scotchman.com)

“America has to maintain its focus on innovation. If we fail there, manufacturing will certainly follow. As products become more complex along with the ever increasing demand for higher quality, I believe the future of American Manufacturing looks bright.” Rod Myers, Vice President of Voelker Sensors, Inc. (www.vsi-oil.com)

“We see many opportunities, to grow the number of products to appeal to broader range of customers. The strong dollar limits some export potential, however we have some products that have very good export potential.”

“I believe consumers and companies are realizing the need for the products which advance their technological environment, to be safer, of higher quality, and produced locally to support the economy they live in. American manufacturing is held to a standard which maintains a direction that will lead us to a better future.”

Bob O’Callaghan, General Manager of Whitney Tool Company, Inc. (www.whitneytool.com)

Thomas Christensen, Design Specialist at Syclone ATTCO (www.skyhook.cc)

“In my opinion, the future success of the American Manufacturing depends upon the flow of capital investment into the manufacturing sector, which needs to increase.”

Roger Cope, President of Gehring, L.P (www.gehring.de/en/home/)

“I see the future as getting stronger with more re-shoring and much more automation.” Steve Kane, Global Sales & Marketing Manager, Kurt Manufacturing, Inc. (www.kurt.com)

“It’s encouraging to see young people take an interest in manufacturing engineering... You can’t be pessimistic about the skills gap after working with such bright young people.” Nancy Lauseng, Marketing Manager of Jet Edge, Inc. (www.jetedge.com)

American Manufacturing

Speaking from Experience 5 0 Y e a r s o f Saw M a n u fa c t u r i n g

D

oug Harris, President and CEO of HE&M Saws, gave us his opinion on the manufacturing environment in America. Following in his father’s footsteps, Harris has run the company since 2003. All operations from design to final assembly take place in HE&M’s sizeable plant in Pryor, OK. Though he is passionate about his work and his company, Harris sees many issues with legislature and regulation which restrict his competitiveness on the global market. In his words, “We need a government that will bring manufacturing back to the U.S.”

1. Describe your company’s primary business? “HE&M Saw manufactures more than 70 different models of production band saws for the metalworking industry. Our product line includes vertical, horizontal, plate and double column saws with capacities ranging from 12” x 12” to 80” x 80” with optional material handling and time saving features.”

2. In brief, what is the history of your company? “HE&M Saw was founded in January 1964 by Gerald R. Harris in Livermore, California. After several years he saw the need to expand and… moved the company to Mid America Industrial Park in Pryor, OK in 1976. It wasn’t long before HE&M Saw began designing and marketing larger and larger saws, from the first HE&M 40-inch machine in 1978 to the huge 80-inch double column saw in 1989. Following my father, I became the President of HE&M Saw in 2003, and became CEO in mid-2005. We have kept the company up-to-date with the latest technology and manufacturing methods. Today, there are approximately 200 employees in more than 250,000 square feet of space, where our saws are still designed, engineered, and manufactured in the U.S.A.”

3. What challenges have you faced in running a manufacturing operation in the US? U.S. manufacturers have to deal with government regulations in various areas such as, but not limited to, the EPA and OSHA… Foreign companies do not have to deal with these regulations and everincreasing health care and litigation costs [making their products cheaper]. Furthermore, foreign governments subsidize their manufacturing companies in various ways that the U.S. Government does not. Every manufacturing company requires qualified labor and in order to have a qualified labor force. A competent and diverse education system is necessary. Government leadership is needed to ensure that the education system produces the types of workers needed to effectively and efficiently run our manufacturing companies. We need an energy policy that favors development of energy sources in the U.S. and weans us off our dependence on foreign entities. Policies that discourage the dumping of cheap, low-quality foreign products need to be terminated and new policies created to give precedence to U.S. manufactured products both at home and abroad are needed.

4. How do you view the future of American Manufacturing? The future of American manufacturing depends upon whether the American Government can make the changes necessary to support American business and manufacturing. If the policies of the current administration continue, it will be a difficult road for American manufacturing. Government needs to be a partner with manufacturing not an adversary. A stable business environment needs to be created and maintained so that businessmen can predict fluctuations in the market and make sound decisions on what to sell and what to buy. We need a government that will bring manufacturing back to the U.S. An economy that can only produce services and service jobs will not survive. Manufacturing is what provides the jobs that support a middle class. It is manufacturing that will continue to provide wealth to our citizens in the future so long as an American administration can provide the leadership to insure that manufacturing survives in the U.S.

American Manufacturing

Qualit y Products Made in America Los Angeles based Brush Research has been providing innovative finishing solutions to the manufacturing industry since 1958. Their latest offering can deliver automated deburring and complete surface finishing of workpieces in a single online operation

O

ne of the more noteworthy advancements in tools for in-line machine deburring, edge radiusing, cleaning and other surface finishing applications is the abrasive nylon brush. Now, with new advances in abrasive technology, machining center operators are able to complete surface finishing simultaneously with other machining operations, to speed product completion, improve on quality and save on off-line finishing time and costs. Abrasive nylon brushes are, for automated applications, densely bristled brushes composed of abrasive and flexible nylon filaments attached to a machine-mountable base. Each filament contains grit particles that provide machining actions such as deburring, cleaning, edge blending, polishing and other surface finishing functions. Although there are a variety of sizes and shapes available, when configured for CNC or robotic applications, typically thousands of nylon filaments containing the appropriate grit are affixed in clusters to a single base that is mounted (e.g., via drive arbor) to the machining equipment. Common applications for these tools include: deburring, cleaning and rust removal, preparing surfaces for plating or painting, spot finishing, and polishing. Tools they commonly replace are grinders, polishing heads, chamfering tools, hand deburring and other equipment. “The abrasive filaments work like ‘flexible files,’ conforming to workpiece contours, wiping and

18

| IMD | JULY 2015 | www.IndMacDig.com

filing across part edges and surfaces to deliver maximum burr removal rates along with an ideal surface finish,” says Eric Sun, Founder of Orange Vise Company, a machine shop and machine tool manufacturer located in Union City, CA. A quality abrasive nylon brush is very durable and self sharpening, providing excellent performance and wear life. Because of linear filament construction, as these brushes come in contact with work surfaces during machining use, filament grit wears off, exposing new cutting particles. In that manner the brush continues to be sharp. Also, unlike the bristles of metal brushes, the nylon fibers are not prone to deforming or breaking off. “A problem with wire brushes is that the bristles tend to shoot out, they don’t really stay put,” Sun explains. “When they bend, they often stay permanently deformed.” In fact, abrasive nylon fibers offer improved compliancy to the contours of even very complex workpieces, preventing damage while ensuring consistent finishing quality. Sun notes that using abrasive nylon brushes can also eliminate the need to use other tools in automated applications, such as chamfer tools for deburring, and face mills for surface polishing. “This tool is also applicable when tumbling would be required to achieve extensive deburring,” he adds. “While tumbling can certainly produce a nice surface finish, it can also create minor defects on parts because they come into contact with one another. Although it may take an extra minute or two to completely finish workpieces in the machine using the abrasive nylon brush technology, in my experience it is usually worth it in terms of quality and costs.”

American Manufacturing Options Available Among a variety of abrasive nylon brush tools available, Sun has adopted the NamPower™ line offered by Brush Research Manufacturing (Los Angeles, CA). “We have two different patterns of these brushes, one is called the Dot-Type, while the other is called Turbine Type,” he says. “We use the Dot Style for deburring highly contoured workpieces with a lot of peaks and valleys. It is particularly economical for light deburring operations when short cycle times are important.” Sun adds that the Turbine Style brush has a more aggressive pattern and is used mainly for medium and heavy deburring applications. This style of brush is better suited towards flatter workpieces with fewer contours and can be used to simulate a milled finish without actually removing any material.

Both these styles of abrasive nylon brushes are available in a variety of abrasive types and grit selections to work with materials including a wide range of metals, super alloys, plastics, advanced composites, metal matrix and ceramics. Both brush styles are available in three different diameters and two different trim lengths to suit most applications and can be used to automate processes on VMC, HMC, CNC and robotic applications, producing a consistent finish from part to part. Composed of flexible abrasive nylon filaments bonded to a fiber reinforced thermoplastic base, NamPower abrasive disc brushes contain a unique combination of both ceramic and silicon carbide filaments. Although there are other abrasive nylon fila-

20

| IMD | JULY 2015 | www.IndMacDig.com

ment products that utilize silicon carbide or ceramic, it is the combination of both in one tool that makes this type of abrasive nylon brushes unique. The ceramic abrasive is engages for material removal, but tends to cut a bit coarse. The silicon carbide acts as a buffer to the cutting action. The end result is deburring and surface finishing in a single operation. These brushes work well with non-ferrous, cast iron, mild steel and ductile iron, stainless and alloy steels, titanium and high nickel alloys. “We weren’t expecting to use brushes so much, but we’re finding more and more uses for them,” says Sun. “We use the same brushes for aluminum, steel, cast iron and stainless steel without having to swap them out very often.” One such application, and one of its primary purposes, is for edge blending. According to Eric, Orange Vise utilizes a variety of deburring tools, including a 45-degree chamfer. Although the tool doesn’t typically leave a burr, when it begins to wear – even slightly – it can. Based on this possibility, Orange Vise required an employee to inspect each part and handle any burrs by hand. Now the company automatically deburrs chamfered holes and edges using the NamPower abrasive disc brush in addition to chamfering with a 45-degree milling cutter. The redundant operation of brushing adds minimal cycle time, improves surface finish, and ensures burr-free parts. Sun adds that shops using CNC and other automated machining equipment can benefit significantly by adopting this type of abrasive brush technology. “With this type of equipment working into the evenings and weekends, it’s really desirable to get the finishing operations done straight out of the machine,” he says. “While some shops running three shifts - if they have the personnel and the capacity they may still prefer to use their machines producing parts – not deburring. But for many operations it’s actually more efficient to let the machine do everything online, so that the part comes out ready to wash and box for delivery to the customer. That can really make a big difference, because you’re using any unutilized machining hours, plus you’re automatically producing parts with consistently high quality.” New developments are also on the horizon. Brush Research is set to release several new products featuring diamond and ceramic impregnated filaments. A new series of affordable diamond filament wheel brushes is designed to finish harder materials like ceramic and carbide. Several new end brush designs featuring ceramic filament will be available in smaller diameters to provide the benefits of abrasive nylon finishing and small parts and recesses.

Improving Manufacturing Practices through

LEAN Implementation R By Chip Johns, President/COO of Butler Automatic

26

educing waste, implementing efficiencypromoting practices, and continuously improving manufacturing operations are the main goals of LEAN manufacturing ideology. While these tasks may seem daunting for a manufacturer at the start of an improvement program, there are many concrete steps that can be taken to shift the culture at any company. For many companies, all it takes to dramatically increase efficiency and reduce waste is a commitment to dive right in and a willingness to continue trying new and creative ideas to find out what works best. If you are able to simplify your manufacturing tasks, increase spatial and workflow organization, take steps to reduce errors, and listen to employees on the manufacturing floor, your company will begin to see reduced waste, improved employee morale and training, improved efficiency, and a greater ability to manufacture products on a predictable timetable. The following tips can help send you on your way towards all of these goals, changing the way your company operates to be ready for improvement at all times.

| IMD | JULY 2015 | www.IndMacDig.com

Simplify Manufacturing Tasks At the heart of waste reduction and increased efficiency is undergoing a process of simplifying manufacturing tasks. Without a critical eye towards opportunities for simplification, manufacturing tasks throughout your process naturally grow inefficient and can lead to wasted time, wasted resources, inconsistent product quality, and a number of other negative outcomes. Finding an appropriate method for simplifying manufacturing tasks is, therefore, an important first step in any company’s improvement. Take, for example, Butler Automatic, the inventor of automatic film splicers. Butler equipment eliminates downtown due to web changes for the packaging industry. Given that promoting efficiency is a key part of Butler’s business, the principles of LEAN are integral to the company’s own manufacturing practices. When Butler Automatic began to solidify its commitment to LEAN manufacturing practices, it had to find a simplification method that was right for its specific type of manufacturing. Since


Implementation of cellular manufacturing at Butler Automatic has simplified manufacturing tasks and led to reduced waste of time and materials.

Butler builds configured machines, or products that are all the same conceptually but are each slightly different to be perfectly tailored to its end use, it implemented a practice known as cellular manufacturing. Cellular manufacturing is highly useful for companies that build machines that need to be configured exactly right the first time. With this method, cells are set up on the manufacturing floor. A cell is set up for each different component of the final product and step in the manufacturing process. The individual cells are tailored to their function in terms of materials, tools, and design. In this way, efficiency is increased and waste reduced because all of the appropriate materials and tools are already at workers’ fingertips. Cellular manufacturing also calls for the same process to be followed each time a certain part is produced or altered. Possible errors are reduced by this increased repetition and operator training is made simpler. Perhaps most important to the LEAN manufacturing process, repetition makes it easier to make iterative changes and track whether these changes have a positive effect on the overall

efficiency of the process. Continuous improvement will be addressed later on in this article, but it is a key component of every aspect of LEAN manufacturing practices. Though cellular manufacturing is not the only way to simplify manufacturing operations, it is one of the most effective, and provides an excellent example for the positive outcomes that can result from implementing LEAN practices. Cellular manufacturing may be right for your business, or you may want to try to find a different way to simplify tasks. Either way, finding a way to simplify your manufacturing process that leads to repeatable quality and easily traceable results is an important first step in the journey of improving your manufacturing practices.

Increase Organization In addition to simplifying your process, organizing your manufacturing floor and workflow can have a great impact on increasing efficiency. Spatial organization of tools, materials and manufacturing space cuts down on search and transport times, while neat and orderly workspaces help workers

Special Focus to feel more relaxed and able to work quickly and efficiently. General cleanliness from dirt, dust, spills and more is important, not just because of its positive impact on worker morale but also because it helps to improve safety of workers and final product quality. Cleanliness is fairly easy to maintain if cleaning supplies are easily visible and readily available. Organization, on the other hand, usually requires a more codified system. Visual systems are particularly useful when it comes to manufacturing organization. Job boards directly on the manufacturing floor, for example, help to convey instructions and customer needs directly to those who need them. These boards can include what jobs are currently on the manufacturing floor and their status, instructions, or any other relevant information for managers, operators, and other staff. Similarly, job books can include more detail about each individual

product and can be made accessible to all workers who need access to the information. With these two systems as an example, you can see how organization can help to be making sure everyone is working from the same information, with no inefficient games of “Telephone” taking place along the manufacturing process. Organization of tools, materials and products, as mentioned earlier, is also critical to increasing efficiency. In the case of Butler Automatic, this means that all of the tools and materials required in a single cell are laid out in that cell, right at operators’ fingertips. When everything has its own place, and everything in its place has a purpose, all forms of waste are drastically reduced.

| IMD | JULY 2015 | www.IndMacDig.com

Take Steps to Reduce Errors All of the steps that are taken to improve organization can help in the prevention of errors in the manufacturing process. Errors are, of course, an inevitable part of manufacturing, regardless of the level of automation, organization and simplicity in the system. Recognizing common sources of errors beyond organizational issues and working to improve them can help to limit those errors, and therefore positively impact your process. For instance, the number of times a part or product is handled often leads to an increase in the likelihood that an error occurs. Conversely, limiting a part or product’s handling time will decrease the chance that an error will occur. Taking steps to limit material handling is, then, one way of promoting error reduction in your process. For Butler Automatic, reducing material handling took the shape of introducing a vendor-managed inventory (VMI) process. Though some may think that VMI simply increases the likelihood that errors will occur on the part of vendors, in reality, VMI is much more than shifting responsibility and handling time. VMI helps to reduce the total inventory in the system and reduce each individual component’s amount of handling by essentially extending the vendor’s factory or warehouse into your own manufacturing facility. The vendor places inventory right into manufacturing cells or other use areas, cutting out the need to receive, handle, count and shift components from receiving to their point of storage and then point of use. In addition, as mentioned in an earlier tip, creating standard procedures whenever possible can help to reduce errors. Increased repetition means simpler operator training and increased familiarity with the process. Simplified operation and training has the added benefit of making it easier to train your workforce across different parts of the manufacturing process. Cross-trained workers help to increase workforce flexibility and therefore efficiency.

Listen to Employees and Constantly Improve Cross training workers throughout your manufacturing process has benefits beyond flexible work assignments, as well. Cross training gives employees a broader look at the entire manufacturing process, and makes it more likely that they will be able to come up with creative solutions for increasing efficiency and continuously improving your process. Continuous improvement, after all, cannot work when implemented as a top-down process, because executives and even managers often do not have the kind of hands-on

experience with the process that is key to finding new and better ways of doing things. Workers throughout the process must feel free to think creatively about the work they and their peers are doing, and innovate ways to make that work more efficient with greater quality control. Employee empowerment and buy-in to a continuous improvement process occurs in something of a positive feedback loop, as well. When employees see their own or their co-workers’ ideas being implemented, they become more likely to speak up when they have an idea. This is especially true when ideas are encouraged and those who attempt to innovate are not stifled if their ideas don’t end up working. One of the most important things to recognize about implementing LEAN manufacturing practices is that not every step in a continuous improvement process will, in fact, improve your process. Some ideas will be tested and not work well, and you shouldn’t be afraid to take a step backwards and start over when something doesn’t work the way you imagine it will. You can always take a step back, but unless all employees feel that their ideas are valued, you won’t always be able to take interesting, creative steps forward. Butler Automatic celebrates innovation by photographically documenting process changes as they occur, and crediting employees who have worked to come up with and implement these changes. This lets employees know how far they have come in generating improvements, and therefore increases employee pride and satisfaction. The level of pride

| IMD | JULY 2015 | www.IndMacDig.com

that employees take in their work means that they, and their peers, are more likely to continue doing that work to the best of their abilities, and constantly find new way to do it better.

Overall Benefits of Lean Manufacturing Successful LEAN manufacturing initiatives, as implemented with these tips in mind, lead to a wealth of benefits. Some of the many benefits of LEAN manufacturing practices include: increased efficiency, higher throughput, more predictable timing of the manufacturing process, and therefore a greater ability to forecast production schedules and meet product deliveries. Butler Automatic, for example, has had a LEAN outlook on manufacturing for many years, but took great strides forward in simplifying and improving their process in 2014. As a result, on-time delivery improved from an average of 77% before 2014 to 97% in 2014 alone. For Butler Automatic, whose products are one part of large packaging lines, on-time production is critical, and LEAN manufacturing practices have led to huge strides forward in this area. In addition, the practices described in this article lead to a better-trained, more flexible workforce. That training, combined with a more pleasant work environment and an encouragement of new and creative ideas on the part of employees, leads to a happier, more productive, and more loyal staff. With a group of people who take great pride in their work and who enjoy doing it, continuous improvement is a natural, long-lasting result, and a way of life at your company.

Workforce Development and Quality:

How Much

?

Automation

Is Too Much

T

oday, the uses of automation, including advanced IT solutions, machine sensors, and robotics, have dramatically improved baseline productivity in manufacturing. However, automation also brings a new set of challenges. Workforce development, for example, is one area where industrial machinery companies need to take a closer look at modern definitions, the evolution of best practices and the impact on quality control.

How Did We Get Here? Automation has been credited with turning around the slumping manufacturing industry and reenergizing concepts around workforce productivity. No longer are U.S. industrial machinery manufacturers and suppliers simply throwing up their hands and saying they can’t possibly compete with countries with lower wages. Factories that were once encumbered with laborintensive processes have evolved into digital enterprises which are highly streamlined and efficient. When producing large-scale machinery, automation is especially beneficial. Rather than placing personnel at risk from the extreme weight, heat, or fast moving parts, robotics can be used to lift and align critical components of the machine being assembled. Welding, a common task used in industrial machinery, was one of the first workflows to be turned over to robotics. Spot welding is not only a high-risk job; it is a job skill that requires precision, consistency and strict quality control. Modern robots easily achieve these requirements—plus add speed, strength, and endurance that are beyond human capabilities. The Robotic Industries Association (RIA), the industry’s trade group, estimates that some 230,000 robots are now in use in United States factories, performing a wide range of applications, including spot welding (76%), arc welding (39%) and assembly (29%).

The Industrial Internet of Things and Industrial Machinery The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is one of the

34

| IMD | JULY 2015 | www.IndMacDig.com

most disruptive technologies to impact manufacturing and the industrial machinery and equipment industry. The IIoT uses smart sensors embedded in devices to send signals to each other. The sensors detect and communicate a wide range of conditions –including location, speed, weight, volume, flow, temperature and vibration. The IIoT is not totally new to Industrial Machinery companies. IM&E was one of the first industries to bring the use of smart sensors, the centerpiece of IIoT technology, into practical application. Machine-to-Machine (M2M) connectivity and telemetry have appeared in the industrial machinery business for years, as high-value capital equipment usually involves considerable investment of resources—investments that companies want to protect through proper preventive maintenance. Automated monitoring can also signal, through alarms, emails, and escalation alerts, if the equipment is exhibiting early warning signs of efficiency erosion or part failure. This can mean simple recalibration is needed or other intervention. By spotting abnormalities early, action can be taken before the issue escalates into a major quality breech or customer complaint.

Protecting Your Investment Telemetry is often used in the equipment industry to inform managers or owners/dealers if the piece of equipment is being misused or violating safety precautions for the equipment –or the personnel. This use case of automation continues to gain adoption as warehouses and industry shop floors are now also using this technology to ensure safe work environments and to protect the machinery from misuse or conditions which will have a negative impact on performance, such as operating at extreme inclines, in harsh environmental conditions, or users executing poor judgment, such as operating forklifts at high speeds, driving heavy equipment through deep mud or risking uses of cranes in high winds.

Special Focus

Improving the Future Automated monitoring of machinery and equipment performance can also help manufacturers identify trends in lifecycle performance and make well informed predictions about the need for replacement parts, back up units and accrue resources for total replacement, when needed. This performance data can also be used by design engineers to improve recurring design issues and study the impact of configuration changes.

Streamlining Operations Automation also helps the shop floor improve operational productivity—as well as streamline the back office. Modern ERP solutions, purpose built for the industry, eliminate silos, dual data entry, and cumbersome manual tasks which can seriously impact productivity.

It is important to keep in mind how automation fits into the overall strategy. Automated workflows and prescribed best practice activities help keep the company operating with consistency and within set standards. This frees managers from supervising “routine” activities and means that they only need to address the exceptions. Their time can be spent on more insightful, meaningful projects, such as product innovation, continuous improvement, and building customer relationships.

The Impact on Workforce Development Will this reliance on automation be a positive trend for the industrial equipment industry or bring with it unexpected risks and complications? Can companies rely too heavily on automation and fall into auto-pilot complacency? These are certainly questions with no easy answers, but ones that deserve further consideration. According to a Bloomberg report, 22 million manufacturing jobs were lost globally between 1995 and 2002—at the same time industrial output soared 30 percent. In the US, manufacturing output has risen 77 percent even though the number of manufacturing workers fell 22 percent since the peak in 1979.

from performing repetitive tasks, burns from hot glue or headaches from paint fumes. On top of that, machines seldom complain, arrive late or file comp claims.

What Job Skills Are Now Required? Just as industrial equipment manufacturers have had to adjust production processes, they must also reevaluate workforce hiring and training issues as well. The old skill sets that recruiters and HR directors once sought are, in many cases, obsolete. Personnel are now expected to be highly engaged problem-solvers, creative thinkers, team builders and data analysts. There are few positions that are exempt from tracking personal Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and departmental performance. In addition to understanding the basic reporting, it is even more important that the personnel know how to extrapolate concepts from the data. Personnel must be problem-solvers and able to think “out of the box” to forge new ground. Most industry pundits agree that Innovation is the key to building a competitive edge in today’s economy.

Where Do Humans Fit In the New Infrastructure? There are many positions that simply cannot—or should not—be automated. Personnel must continue to be the decision makers in thousands of key operational questions. Sensors, surveys, business intelligence tools, and data mining can provide the statistical input, but humans must still set the parameters and evaluate the outcomes. Personnel make the difficult decisions involving nuances of quality control and customer satisfaction. People build relationships with other people, not automated systems. It may seem like an obvious truism, but it is one that some companies easily forget as they cut back on customer call centers and valued-add programs to promote loyalty. Customer experience is increasingly being recognized as an important way to differentiate from low-cost suppliers. The “experience” is far more than a bargain price. It can range from interactive portals, configuration tools, and collaboration on product design to aftermarket service and extended warranties. Quality control is another area where the workforce development is evolving. Modern continuous quality monitoring involves the best of both worlds: precise automation plus judgement of well-informed personnel. Machinery can be used to detect non-compliance, but personnel make the decision on how to learn from the errors and how to improve processes to eliminate future errors. Even more importantly personnel must decide the priority and relevance to the overall corporate plan.

Increased Productivity Is Clearly Improving Results. The shift to automation also changes the workforce requirements. The largely manual, repetitive tasks on an assembly line have been replaced by automated machinery. Today machines are on factory floors performing tasks, such as folding, stacking, sorting, trimming, coating, packaging and labelling. Machines, as most people will acknowledge, have greater consistency, precision, and endurance. They don’t get back aches from standing, carpel tunnel syndrome

Actionable Advice: As Industrial equipment manufactures move to the next level of automation, it is important to keep in mind how automation fits into the overall strategy. Automation and workforce development must evolve at the same time, working hand in hand to improve productivity, the customer experience and growth.

MESA International Releases XML Language for Manufacturing KPIs Mesa International, a non-profit organization information technologies in manufacturing, has released a new XML computer language called KPI-ML. It is based upon the ISO 22400 standard: Automation systems integration - Key performance indicators (KPIs) for manufacturing operations management. KPI-ML will help manufacturing companies implement the ISO 22400 standard thereby increasing the flow of key performance indicators within a business. KPI-ML consists of XML schemas allowing for a standard representation of generic KPI definitions, specific instances of use of KPIs (such as related to specific equipment), and KPI values for specific KPI instances. The information in KPI-ML is based on the data models and attributes defined in the ISO 22400 standards and complies with the ANSI/ISA 95 and IEC/ISO 62264 Enterprise-Control system integration standards. KPI-ML is available courtesy of MESA International as a free download at www.mesa.org.

ELFA Reports New Business up 10% Year-to-Date New business volume for May was $7.1 billion, up 1 percent from new business volume in May 2014, though down 13 percent from last month. Year to date, cumulative new business volume increased 10 percent compared to 2014. ELFA President and CEO William G. Sutton, CAE, said: “New business volume continues to hold its own in the equipment finance sector, despite the modest April to May decline. Although members report strong activity in certain markets, some business owners continue to take a wait-and-see attitude before investing in new plant and equipment, as the Fed considers when to tighten monetary policy, which will lead to higher interest rates.” For more information visit www.elfaonline.org/data/mlfi/
