3D Printing: Fact vs. Fiction
3D printing (a.k.a., additive manufacturing) has lately been a hot theme in engineering and manufacturing, and it's still in its infancy. I've attended several

materials 3d  The concept of self-assembling materials by Skylar Tibbits (in collaboration with MIT ) was presented at Autodesk University 2013 , and I am still trying to wrap my head around it (see the TED Talk ). The big idea is to create objects that can change after they are printed, making them self-adapting, for example, after a material absorbs water and changes its properties. The act of printing is no longer the end of the creative process but merely a waypoint.   For example,  pipes could be developed to Read More...

Index card files had been used to record material allocations, receipts, and issues.

Those card files provided a real help to a planner as long as each index card had been updated in a Read More...

Optimizing the Supply Chain and Increasing Customer Satisfaction: An Interview with Robert Abate of RCG Information Technology
Manufacturers must constantly address how to increase customer satisfaction, identify supply chain issues before they become problems, and lower production

RA : Well, business intelligence, as you know, is the revealing of data or the reporting on data and the turning data into information. So, BI specifically helps manufacturers in optimizing their supply [chains] by reviewing tons of products, read tons of raw materials and, in turn, allows for things like alerts. Reports can alert organizations to Read More...

According to Wikipedia, BOM is the term used to describe the raw materials, parts, subcomponents, and components needed to manufacture a finished product. Simply speaking, BOM is just a list of all materials needed to be assembled together into a product. The concept is clear and simple, and it doesn’t seem to be a difficult task to manage BOM, especially when we Read More...
