We at Micor love Wikipedia, it is truly a jewel on the internet that other big data players should aspire to. Here’s one of their gifts … some of the coolest pictures from the planet in 2019. Check them all out!
Last week, Jim attended “The Video Show,” which was held in Washington D.C., at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. John Humphrey from Hitachi pointed out that HDR may be the key feature you notice in that new 4K TV this Christmas—not the 4K resolution.
The average household has their TV on the opposite wall from their couch. In order to notice the 4K resolution, viewers would either have to move the couch to the middle of the room or buy a screen of 100+ inches. However, HDR is perceptible at any distance.
Only the wheels on this car were 3D printed here at the Rapid + TCT 2019 trade show. And the wheels were just as impressive as the car! But I’m checking out more than just wheels. Here there are more printers that are using more diverse materials and supplying more markets than ever. You don’t have to be here in Detroit to learn where this market is headed. Contact Micor after the show to find out what we learned about the value of 3D printing assets.
A recently client called to ask about the useful life of Digital Manufacturing equipment. Once I saw the make and models of the assets, it was clear what the client meant was 3D printing (or “Additive Manufacturing”) equipment.
Dean Bartles, the ASME’s New Technology Advisor, stated clearly in the ASME journal:
“Some people think Digital manufacturing is 3D Printing, but it’s not. Digital manufacturing is virtual representation of the of the entire manufacturing process so that designers can [see the impact of their choices] on a virtual computer screen.”
The take away”¦ Digital Manufacturing is a design processing using software and state of the art data gathering. 3D Printing is a machine using advance design, bonding and material science that makes objects.
A recent short article called “DATA GARBAGE IN”, the Harvard Business Review exposed just how surprisingly bad the data we rely on for analytics is.
Seventy-five managers were tasked with evaluating 100 records that they has used to make a past analysis. The retrospective found found only 3% of the record data acceptable and 47% unusable. Their conclusion was predictable. There are high cost consequences using bad data and the extra effort to assure good data would pay off quickly.
Good data isn’t cheap! It’s not fast or easy to build. But once in place and maintained, it creates a reliable foundation that easy to expand and empowers managers to confidently conduct analysis and make supportable decisions.
Over the course of our 30 years in business, we have found critical issues in data records in many different institutions and enterprises. Once data records are “cleaned,” the company experiences both short and long term payoffs, which further elevate the enterprise. After implementing our services, we have seen companies improve in several facets leading to more efficient decision making and a happier customer base.
