Grantek’s Bryon Hayes Answers “Is Automation Technology Delivering on Expectations?” for Automation World Magazine
March 2, 2022
The February 2022 issue of Automation World includes an article asking if automation technology delivers on expectations. This article quotes Grantek’s Director of Smart Manufacturing Solutions, Bryon Hayes. Automation World suggests “technologies that don’t really improve productivity or reduce costs are referred to as ‘so-so technologies’”, then asks how manufacturers can avoid adopting these ‘so-so technologies’.
“Based on his experience working with manufacturers and seeing technologies not delivering on expectations, Hayes points out that such issues are not necessarily connected to the technology. These issues can also be caused by one business unit selecting the tool and the vendor without input from key stakeholders in other business units.”
