Breaking the Mold in Manufacturing

Posted by Saul Lustgarten on Mar 8, 2018 12:09:43 PM


Today is International Women’s Day, a great occasion to celebrate women’s contributions to manufacturing, but also to take a step back and measure how our industry fares on gender equality. According to Deloitte, even though women totaled about 47 percent of the US labor force in 2016, they are only 29 percent of the manufacturing workforce. The good news is that things seem to be improving. For example, the number of women that would encourage their daughter or female family member to pursue a career in manufacturing increased 18% between 2015 and 2017 to 42%.

5 Reasons Operators Love Smart Work Instructions

Posted by Saul Lustgarten on Feb 15, 2018 10:41:39 AM

The primary reason work instructions go unused is because they don’t add enough value to operators. Instead, they slow them down and don’t help them do their jobs better. This affects both paper and digital work instructions alike. However, as we’ve said before, not all digital work instructions are created equal.
