Manufacturing journalist, TR Cutler recently contributed a feature article in AutomationMedia about the importance of inventory management for many smaller manufacturers. These manufacturers range from makers of organic candles to unique eyewear; they make clothes, jewelry, and more. Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over these very manufacturers are looking at how to improve their operations.
Cutler looked at the failure of old solutions like Fishbowl and MRPeasy inventory control to address these manufacturers, who have overwhelmingly decided that Katana cloud-based manufacturing software allows them to keep accurate control of inventory for a small monthly SaaS (software as a service) solution.
AutomationMedia, founded in 1998, is one of the most credible sources in the media, with informative content regarding automation, controls, breakthrough manufacturing, as well as operational and industrial intelligence. AutomationMedia is a valuable tool and a favorite bookmarked stop for automation and control professionals worldwide. The publisher has earned a global reputation among industrial software vendors, lean manufacturing experts, and thought leadership contributors.
For 2020 AutomationMedia will introduce a series of case study feature article profiles (usually ten real-world examples by a single vendor) as well as dedicated editorial columns in a new sponsorship program. This will allow readers to capture the breadth and insight of thought leaders’ content as a deep dive exploration of both the pain points on the plant floor and the solutions available.
According to Naeem Ismat, publisher and editor of AutomationMedia, “We are dedicated to developing the awareness and understanding about interoperability in automation by providing the best information from the best sources.” Ismat added one-time articles often fail to explore the true automation considerations which is why expanded coverage format is critical.
Ismat recently announced a formal strategic alliance partnership with manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, founder of the 7000-member Manufacturing Media Consortium and is also the CEO of TR Cutler, Inc. This will ensure that all content is aggressively cross-promoted through both publication relations and social media. This will optimize the published content substantially.
