Is Statistics Key to Scaling Up High Tech Sector?
High Tech seems to have ended up in 'Perfect Storm'...
In the High Tech industry, extremely high quality requirements apply. In addition, the supply pressures on the High Tech sector remains high. Technological developments are changing at lightning speed, OEMs demand shorter production cycles and an ever smaller chance of errors. We also see an increasing demand for High Tech precision products. This is partly due to geopolitical shifts whereas the US and the European Union are investing billions in 'resourceing' High Tech production to their own continent.
ASML and the stove pipe...
And there it was again: the stovepipe metaphor. We were invited to a meeting at ASML in Veldhoven, The Netherlands. Meeting up to talk about the Togetr software solutions, in particular about the issue of supply chain logistics. Are there opportunities to increase the scalability of the supply chain due to digitization? Which planning concepts are important? Can the automotive supply chain serve as an example to the High Tech?
High tech products, low tech processes...
In the southern and eastern regions of the Netherlands there are a lot of high tech companies. What is happening here in the Netherlands is viewed with admiration elsewhere in the world. At the Precision Fair this week in Den Bosch, The Netherlands you could see this with your own eyes: great innovative companies that present their high tech achievements. The ASML momentum is of course one of the main driving forces behind this. But ASML would not be able to deliver their unbeatable EUV lithography systems without the highly innovative suppliers they have committed to themselves.
However, there is also a phrase going around in the industry: high tech products, but low tech processes. What is produced is unprecedented and world-class, but various people in high tech say that the production and delivery processes in the supply chain can and should become much more efficient. We think there are 3 reasons for this.

Do organizations opt for best-in-breed or all-in-one?
The advantages, disadvantages, and trade-offs of both approaches for manufacturing companies
4 opportunities to use digital twins for manufacturing companies
How data is used to optimize your production process
The digitization of the manufacturing industry seems to be getting off to a good start. Manufacturing companies understand the urgency to modernize more and more. Terms such as Industry 4.0, AI, AR, IoT, and IIoT are part of everyday conversations. The majority of the industry realizes that the digital transformation of a company allows you to differentiate yourself from the competition. However, when it comes to Digital Twins, many companies lack a clear understanding of what this means and what opportunities these Digital Twins offer. A missed opportunity, since the benefits are not to be ignored.
Why you can no longer ignore microservices as a CIO
Microservices — Why do so many software companies choose this architecture?
We know Amazon as one of the largest webshops in the world. Yet a significant part of their revenue comes from operating so-called micro-services. The overwhelming amount of publications regarding this topic is convincing. An excited colleague started thinking about redesigning his core application with Amazon microservices. About two years later, he changed his mind. The micro-services architecture took much more time and, according to him, was certainly not an ideal choice for integrated Enterprise apps.
Togetr ERP now operational at Meggson

Meggson (previously known as Cobot Automation) went operational with Togetr ERP on Tuesday, June 1st. The first talks between Meggson and Togetr about the ERP possibilities started at the end of 2020. Their request was simple: a complete, modern, and simple ERP system. The ERP system must have a modern User Interface and must be cloud-based to remain 'evergreen'.
A guide towards a data-driven organization
4 steps for better data management + 7 use cases from the manufacturing industry
Decision-making based on data is a challenge for many. Data quality is unreliable, data lacks context or human intuition contradicts itself. Yet now is the time to apply data correctly, to stop gambling in the hope of a positive effect, and start using well-founded arguments. For small and medium-sized companies in the manufacturing industry that are using data to its full potential, here is a guide to a data-driven organization.
