Grantek Experts Featured in Control Engineering Magazine’s 2021 Global System Integrator Report
January 4, 2021
Control Engineering Magazine’s 2021 Global System Integrator Report features an article which outlines why maintaining business continuity during COVID-19 is vital for manufacturers, and how secure remote access can provide a safe platform to keep operations running. This article, titled: “Implementing secure remote access and MES“, was written by Jacob Chapman, Grantek’s Director, Industrial IT & Cybersecurity and Sam Russem, Grantek’s Director, Smart Manufacturing Practice.
“The COVID-19 global pandemic is impacting every individual, every community and every company across the globe. The uncertainty of this pandemic altered production and operations for North American manufactures across all sectors. Some sectors saw orders and demand increase during this time, while other sectors suffered. Regardless of the sector, we have been challenged to continue manufacturing while maintaining quality, meeting production quotas and innovating in a time of unprecedented ambiguity and change. To respond to this challenge, we turn to technology as we rethink how manufacturing can function in the current environment and see a reinvigorated need for digital transformation. Two thriving technology solutions are new manufacturing execution systems (MES) and secure remote access solutions.”
