Jul. 25, 2016 - The advent of Cloud-based offerings for product lifecycle management (PLM) has reduced costs to the point where small manufacturers can afford to take advantage.

May 13, 2016 - Manufacturers in North America must balance a multitude of issues to stay profitable. Increased competition from overseas manufacturing with its access to cheap labour, the reduced availability of qualified workers in the manufacturing trades, and tightening employee and environmental regulatory requirements, are but a few of the key issues challenging the wits of manufacturing executives today. Equally important is the struggle to shift into a new era of production — from high-volume, low-mix work, to an increasing growth of low-volume, high-mix short-run projects coupled with just-in-time ordering — which has placed high demands on all aspects of manufacturing.
