In part two of this series we’ll talk about technology and its significance to ATTA’s services. In case you missed it, you can read part one here.
Robots! Self-driving cars! Video phones that fit in your pocket! I’m sure all of us are aware that the future is now. It’s incredible how far technology has come in our lifetime, but the truth isn’t just about doing cool, “look-at-me” things. Technology is about getting things done and solving day-to-day problems.
According to Wikipedia, technology means “science of craft.” Yes, technology is an art form – a craft, if you will. It is the intelligent application of science to this craft that improves the quality of our daily lives. So, when it comes to manufacturing and quality control in your facility what does such intentional technology do there? The production industry is centered around jobs getting done, not just the appearance of proficiency. We need to identify the technologies that will make work more productive, safe, and. well… maybe a little cool if we can work that in.
Industry, though, is not tolerant to spending capital simply for the newest “cool” technology. New technology should successfully increase productivity when implemented correctly. (It has been known to do the exact opposite when implemented incorrectly!)
So, where do we find the balance between the fanciness and productivity of new technology? This is one of the daily challenges we all face in any business. Here at ATTA we subscribe to the KISS (Keep It Simple, Silly) method. This allows us and our systems to be more flexible to the demands of the ever-changing market. Our technical functionality simply and efficiently grows with the shifting trends of the products’ currently popular sleekness. We pay attention to the technologies that will be around for a long time, plus give you the flexibility to adapt new technologies to your system as they become a viable solution to your production needs.
