Solving the Global Labor Shortage
There is a challenge to train, upskill and reskill manufacturing workers in every country. The World Economic Forum estimates over 1 billion people globally need to be re-skilled by 2030 as technology triggers the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Learn about this global problem, and the technologies READY is developing that help to solve it.
Why Automation Fails to Scale in Enterprise Manufacturing
Everyone wants to automate. So why are fully scaled enterprise manufacturers so few and far between? We've identified six key reasons why many large manufacturers are never able to progress beyond project planning or pilot programs. Join READY as we discuss these challenges and the strategies to overcome them in the first issue of our Fail to Scale white paper series.
Automating Medical Device Manufacturing
Learn how medical device manufacturers can meet the rising demand for medical devices means by augmenting their workforces with robotic automation to increase capacity while maintaining costs.
5 Reasons Programming Robots is so Hard
Learn the reasons why programming robots is so hard, and find out how leading manufacturers are using new technology to solve this problem.
Avoiding Pilot Purgatory
Robotics automation pilots require a significant investment of time, money and bandwidth. Avoid a stalled, or failed pilot by learning the five steps manufacturers can follow to properly select a target process to pilot, successfully implement it, document the ROI, and create a plan for scaling the solution to the entire factory.
Cobots are Great, but…
Cobots are great, but they aren’t the best solution for every application. From safety considerations, to speed, payload, and precision requirements, quickly learn key decision factors for selecting the right robot for your application, as well as common traps to avoid when making this important automation decision.
The No Code Revolution
Automation has been the realm of expensive, highly-trained experts. Until now. Learn how No Code programming is unlocking a new paradigm of affordable, user-friendly, cross-platform automation that is transforming industrial automation.
Coronavirus: Another Reason to Automate
While the health and economic impacts will ultimately be contained - the coronavirus serves as a wakeup call for manufacturers. Learn how forward-thinking manufactures will respond, strengthen their operations, and position themselves to dramatically increase output as the economy accelerates.
The Teach Pendant is Dead
For decades, the teach pendant has been a critical tool for robot programming. Learn why it will continue to be necessary, and how a 21st century update to this device will have a profound impact on the manufacturing world.
Automation is Too Expensive
Despite the widespread adoption of robotic automation in some areas of manufacturing, more extensive use of robots is often slow or even blocked by an inability to justify the upfront investment. Learn how easy-robot-programming software can lower the ROI barrier for manufacturers on all levels.
The Problem with Robotics Education
Manufacturing lacks skilled workers capable of programming and deploying automation at scale. To solve this problem, advanced manufacturing education must evolve, and the hyper-fragmented robotics landscape must be simplified. Seven key changes to current robotics education, combined with cross-brand programming software, can dramatically improve the ability of educational institutions to produce workers skilled in advanced manufacturing and automation.
Enabling Smooth Digital Transformations in the Factory
There are many reasons why digital transformations can be especially challenging in factories and other physical production environments. In this whitepaper we explore the common obstacles manufacturers may face, as well as six strategies for achieving a successful digital transformation.
5 Key Innovations that will Enable Widespread Robotic Automation
The use of robots in manufacturing has increased steadily in recent decades, but numerous factors continue to limit broader utilization of robotics. Learn the 5 key innovations that are poised to unlock widespread adoption of robotic automation.
Objections to Making Robots Easier to Program
There’s a strong case to be made for simplifying robot programming, and adopting a standard programming platform. But, some cling to proprietary programming environments that require highly-trained experts. What are the arguments for preserving the status quo? We must address them so we can unlock automation for all manufacturers.
