1. Benefits of using a control of work system in a manufacturing facility

Many plant managers and environmental, health and safety (EHS) professionals can manage regulatory requirements for dangerous environments more easily as part of a larger control of work system.

2. Assisting manufacturers in making the right decision in packaging applications

Manufacturers have many choices when it comes to packaging applications and it’s critical for the supplier to understand the customer’s needs.

3. Create a strategic plan when integrating automation in manufacturing facilities

Plant owners must develop a strategic and comprehensive plan about their integration process to optimize production long-term.

4. Benefits of a rack safety flywheel in warehouse, manufacturing facilities

Rack safety in warehouse and manufacturing facilities can have major consequences if not properly maintained. Developing a consistent safety and education program can help.

5. Three pillars for digitalization success

The path to a digital production facility can be incremental, capturing benefits along the way through the proposed approach of tying lean practices to data collection so users throughout the facility have access to visualization and analytics.

The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on, April 10-16, 2022, for articles published within the last two months.
