Planetary Resources Uses 3D Printing in Spacecraft Production
Planetary Resources Uses 3D Printing in Spacecraft Production
Planetary Resources expects that the Arkyd spacecraft will eventually be mass-produced at cost significantly lower than current spacecraft, so weight must be minimized to the greatest extent possible.

PC Control Combines PLC with CNC
Kraft Maschinenbau produces highly customized doors, requiring very flexible, mixed production of a large variety of components and products, down to batch size 1. This includes variations in frame size, materials, décors, seal types, and fittings.
Delphi Leverages the M1 for Prototyping and Final Part Production
Delphi Leverages the M1 for Prototyping and Final Part Production
As the automotive industry continues to tighten product development timelines, compressing design time in the supplier network has been the go-to model to achieve desired results. Traditionally, to successfully address the economics of part production, Delphi has used technologies like injection molding to deliver parts at scale. The cost of tooling development and time associated has limited part production to be focused on mass-production only.

WorkWise ERP Software
WorkWise ERP Software
Historically, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software has been designed using a modular structure. WorkWise, however, after developing and implementing ERP and CRM solutions for over fifteen years, recognized the need for an approach that was focused on user roles rather than modules. With this goal in mind, WorkWise created WorkWise ERP, a flexible, on-premise ERP application that enables the assembly of screens and functions necessary to fit each user’s role and responsibilities.

YANOMALY
YANOMALY
Machines, devices and industrial equipment generate more and more data that is easier to collect using the IoT. This data is full of hard to extract valuable information.Yazzoom’s machine data analytics and anomaly detection solution uses artificial intelligence to automatically learn normal machine operations and detect anomalies in sensor data and log filesIt is used to (remotely) monitor machines and have an early detection of technical issues, speed up (remote) diagnostics of the root cause of machine failure and reduce the mean time to repair, extract the typical usage patterns of a machine fleet to improve the design and engineering of the next generation and more.Thanks to its flexible architecture and data agnostic machine learning algorithms, it has a proven track record on a variety of machine and data types: industrial production lines (continuous and batch processes, robot-powered discrete manufacturing), medical imaging equipment, network and telecom infrastructure, IoT-enabled utilities networks, power plant systems, consumer connected devices…

SOSV
SOSV
Need to manufacture thousands of some new consumer electronics device? Yes, we will help you optimize your product/market fit, your messaging, and your presentation. But with HAX, SOSV has engineering talent that can guide your design through all the steps to mass manufacturing and beyond. The team will help you to prototype quickly using the local ecosystem as well as point out flaws like battery charging circuits that could have cost a million dollars, and a year of recalls, if it’d gotten into production. Need to create a synthetic biology startup to manufacture proteins? With IndieBio, SOSV has on-staff scientists, and includes co-working wet lab facilities equipped with $1 million+ of the genetics and biology instrumentation that can optimize a startup’s yield, getting the company de-risked, introduced to gatekeepers and marketmakers, and closer to production. No other accelerator comes close.
Plattform Industrie 4.0
Plattform Industrie 4.0
Industry is both the backbone of the German economy and a strong foundation for the impending digitisation of industrial manufacturing. Industrie 4.0 will enable mass production according to individual customer requirements and lead to new business models and new perspectives for employees. The framework for this structural change must be designed to strengthen German industry. Plattform Industrie 4.0 is tasked with drawing up relevant recommendations for action and demonstrating with example applications how industrial manufacturing can be digitized successfully in practice.As part of its High-Tech Strategy ("Ideas. Innovation. Prosperity.") to consolidate German innovation leadership, Germany is making significant R&D investment in the Internet of Things and new services for the diverse application areas within this new connected world.The more networked the economy becomes, the more cooperation, participation and coordination of all stakeholders is needed. The platform’s goal is therefore to develop a consistent overall understanding of Industrie 4.0 through dialogue with businesses, trade unions, science and government. To draw up relevant recommendations for action and demonstrate with example applications how industrial manufacturing can be digitised successfully in practice.The Industrie 4.0 implementation strategy was drawn up in cooperation with industrial companies and other associations by the original platform operated by BITKOM, the VDMA and ZVEI. The report designates the core components of Industrie 4.0. The findings of the implementation strategy continue to influence the platform’s work. The implementation strategy can be found here.

Mass Customization
Mass Customization
Mass customization is the new frontier in business for both manufacturing and service industries. At its core is a tremendous increase in variety and customization without a corresponding increase in costs. At its limit, it is the mass production of individually customized goods and services. At its best, it provides strategic advantage and economic value.Many implementations of mass customization are operational today, such as software-based product configurators that make it possible to add and/or change functionalities of a core product or to build fully custom enclosures from scratch. Companies that have succeeded with mass-customization business models tend to supply purely electronic products. However, these are not true "mass customizers" in the original sense, since they do not offer an alternative to mass production of material goods. 
Visual Quality Detection
Visual Quality Detection
Visual Quality Detection refers to the use of vision for automatic inspection, process control and robot guidance in an industrial environment.Quality assurance systems utilize RFID, sensors, video monitoring, remote information distribution and cloud solutions on the production line to streamline inspection procedures, improve decision making, and reduce costs driven by quality defects. 
Process Control & Optimization (PCO)
Process Control & Optimization (PCO)
Process Control and Optimization (PCO) is the discipline of adjusting a process to maintain or optimize a specified set of parameters without violating process constraints.The PCO market is being driven by rising demand for energy efficient production processes, safety and security concerns, and the development of IoT systems that can reliably predict process deviations.Fundamentally, there are three parameters that can be adjusted to affect optimal performance:- Equipment optimizationThe first step is to verify that the existing equipment is being used to its fullest advantage by examining operating data to identify equipment bottlenecks.- Operating proceduresOperating procedures may vary widely from person-to-person or from shift-to-shift. Automation of the plant can help significantly. But automation will be of no help if the operators take control and run the plant in manual.- Control optimizationIn a typical processing plant, such as a chemical plant or oil refinery, there are hundreds or even thousands of control loops. Each control loop is responsible for controlling one part of the process, such as maintaining a temperature, level, or flow. If the control loop is not properly designed and tuned, the process runs below its optimum. The process will be more expensive to operate, and equipment will wear out prematurely. For each control loop to run optimally, identification of sensor, valve, and tuning problems is important. It has been well documented that over 35% of control loops typically have problems. The process of continuously monitoring and optimizing the entire plant is sometimes called performance supervision.
