How to plan and build an effective collaboration platform for the stringent demands of manufacturing. Learn how business collaboration is different from social media and how integrated collaborative tools serve as a knowledge management platform and help manage transactional data, speed decisions and support proactive attentions to issues.
The use of social media concepts in business environments is growing rapidly: but to many executives, the applications and benefits are unclear. In this white paper, we'll examine how social media and social business differ, how social business is being used, and why companies should care.
Good lighting is critical in industrial buildings. These facilities support important tasks from picking to light assembly and even office work. Since multiple functions are often performed in the same area, lighting should adapt to different tasks. Learn the strategies that are proven to improve energy savings, occupant comfort and building management.

While the benefits of server virtualization at the corporate data center are receiving a great deal of attention, its ability to address lifecycle management issues may make virtualization even more compelling at the manufacturing plant. Along with the advantages, however, come additional challenges and risks. This paper offers best practices you can use to benefit from server virtualization today, while avoiding mistakes that could affect the availability and performance of business-critical manufacturing IT.
Typically New Product Development (NPD) projects are recognized for their rigorous gated process. In conjunction, at the heart of every successful NPD project lies a talent pool that is responsible for driving this process. Consequently, it is crucial that the project activities and input of the project team and stakeholder’s are aligned with the overall vision of the project. In this paper, I will be focusing on the impact people have on the successful launch of a new product and the important role the effective planning of these people can impact a new product’s final acceptance in the marketplace.
Successful new product development (NPD) projects start with a great idea and are executed with the right plan. Prototyping, more than any other stage in the lifecycle of a NPD project relies on the people and talent behind the product to validate theories and execute on activities that will lay the foundation for a product’s successful market launch. In this paper, I will be focusing on the impact resources have on the prototyping stage in new product development projects and the future role project stakeholders can have on the final results of a new product’s success or failure.
Product development organizations live and die by the product development projects they select. Prioritizing and selecting the best projects are as important to these organizations’ success as the products themselves. Although most organizations are diligent in building a framework to evaluate a product's viability, many fall short on the human element ultimately responsible for successfully delivering a product to market. In this white paper, I will be focusing on the impact resources have on new product development projects and the critical role project and portfolio management plays in providing complete visibility when deciding on your next great product idea.
Projecting and planning are two main components in today’s product and facility lifecycle. To ease the process, three technological breakthroughs are incorporated; embedded sensors that pass information in real-time, wireless communication and Cloud computing.
Having universally accessible data throughout a value chain is no easy feat for any organization. However, it’s key for Big Data. The Internet of Things (IoT) makes that visibility possible in real-time.
Zebra takes your organization into the future with products that connect wirelessly, integrate seamlessly and provide wall to wall visibility. Knowing what is happening, where it’s happening and why it’s happening is key in better understanding your business’s needs.
