A Peek At Manufacturing Innovation

By March 11, 2005General

One of the highlights of the annual pilgrimage to National Manufacturing Week is the tour of the Accenture Technology Labs, and this year was no exception. The place really buzzes with innovation and some really cool stuff, like state of the art thinking and experimentation with sensor telemetry and predictive monitoring, the latter telling you about breakdowns long before they occur. There is also the “Intelligent Home Services Lab”, a kind of smart living room loaded with RFID and other technology that would make Buck Rogers proud. Thanks to Dean Teglia, Scott Rose and their team for another great display of the innovation that drives manufacturing.
