Manufacturing and Logistics

In a landscape of manufacturing expansion in the Eurozone and APAC, it’s essential to identify and mitigate potential risks before goods enter production in order to reduce negative impact on production

It's also important to maintain a continuous course of innovation to ensure that growth endures.

Manufacturing and Logistics trends will include: bringing smarter thinking into manufacturing design processes, adding new digital methods to stress-test products and services data and analytics to learn from live products and understand the impact of engineering work on future production.

We see three key trends in this sector for the coming years: 

1. AI-assisted Design

When computers first started to make a major impact on industrial design with Computer-Aided Design (CAD) they brought transformation in thinking and practise.

They helped us create safer products, in shorter timeframes and with less waste. Now, most products are designed this way.

The next step in this design revolution will be artificially intelligent. Optimisation of designs can be difficult and time-consuming. With AI-powered CAD tools, Engineers will be able to optimise for stress distributions, heat distributions and deformations while simulating new patterns instantly. This will help greatly reduce the time taken for design while encouraging the creation of better products.

We have a global network of over 18,000 Colleagues with cross-domain expertise in manufacturing, industrialization support and supply chain management. Our colleagues can mobilise rapidly to help your business improve its design processes in-house or as an outsourced service.

2. AR/VR

While focus on the usefulness of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) has been on consumer application, the technologies show great potential to improve standard operating procedures in industry. 

AR and VR can be applied to maintenance and remote assistance, reducing the impact of human error and providing important performance data to maintenance staff. In the design phase, AR provides tools that assist in rapid prototyping and visualization.

3. Data and Analytics 

Engineers have often been separated from the day-to-day operation of industry.

Real-time monitoring of sensor data from machines will change this, bringing Engineers closer to the factory floor, to inform current design work and the conduct of research programmes. This will give them information on how fabrication methods impact practical use and feed into their negotiations with vendors and customers alike.

When machines break or fail, there will be no need to wait for old chains of communication before failures can inform current and future designs. Combined with rapid prototyping, it'll be possible to quickly provide fixes or changes to new products before they enter production.

Our Manufacturing and Logistics Data Center Support services can work in tandem with your business to assess the ways data and analytics can best be deployed to improve your manufacturing practises.

Consulting & Professional Staffing

We bring our expertise to your business, on-site, connecting the smartest people and brightest businesses to the opportunities they need to thrive.

We can provide whatever is required to fit into your development cycle, whenever it's needed and to the highest standards.

Project Services

We connect the smartest talent with specialized skills to form a multi-talented team. Integrating into your organisation or serving in a consultative role.

Our services are managed through SLAs and KPIs, ensuring the highest-degree of operational excellence throughout the project.

Outsourcing & Managed Services

Your challenge is our challenge and the risk is ours.
We deploy a portfolio of services and solutions at a fixed price with a guaranteed outcome. This ranges from large and highly complex work packages to smaller, lower-complexity packages where we take responsibility for all components. This means it's much easier to focus on your core competencies, while we manage the risk.
