End customers’ expectations are growing by the minute- as are threats of lost […]
Blockchain in Supply Chains: Looking Beyond the Hype — MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics (MIT CTL) Roundtable
I recently attended a Blockchain in Supply Chains: Looking beyond the Hype roundtable hosted by MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics. Surrounded by 50 esteemed colleagues, from a host of industries, we spent the day discussing this nascent technology and various ways that it can be used to create value across the supply chain. Two very clear messages resonated with me and seemed to permeate the audience relative to the macro problems that blockchain can potentially solve:
The global HME market is expected to grow from $27.8 billion in 2015 to nearly $44.3 billion by 2020. With all that equipment coming into the field, it’s more important than ever to streamline field service delivery and get on the path to higher profitability. The time to start is now.read more

You may not have thought of it this way, but your connected products are talking to you. Through their log files, they tell you every day how to improve your business. We call this Voice of Product, and it provides essential information about what’s happening with each product in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues with software, infrastructure capacity, configuration, hardware and more.
On its own Voice of Product has limited value. But, when analyzed alongside other critical post-sale supply chain data—including Voice of the Customer, Voice of the Process, real-time and historical operational data—VoP can have a significant impact on your ability to predict machine failures so you’re better equipped to handle, and even avert, issues; shift from reactive to proactive modes across traditionally fragmented post-sale supply chain functions; and improve overall supply chain health and outcomes.read more

While many medical technology companies collect machine data, there are clear challenges that need to be overcome to be able to successfully analyse the data and take meaningful actions on predicted outcomes. Relatively low volumes (and high value) of installed products and the delicate nature of the relationship between manufacturers and their customers further slow the change process. However, early adopters are already seeing the benefits of this approach and the next 3-5 years could see a rapid evolution of how the machine data is being managed.read more
As technology continues to evolve, the prospect of smarter machines is creating a paradigm of preventative, even predictive maintenance, making it so that something no longer has to break before a technician is deployed to fix it. Innovations such at the emergence of the internet-of-things, self-servicing machines, and stronger remote diagnostic and support tools in the hand of technicians will continue to sculpt their role. While there can be a wide variance in terms of responsibilities for the technician depending on their industries, some trends enabled by emerging technology are bound to become near ubiquitous going into the future.read more
