Design Your Future

Joe wondered, “What’s going to happen to me? What does the future hold?”

He remembers his father saying, “All you can do is hope for the best.” So Joe hopes and hopes. “I hope I get paid more for my work. I hope people will appreciate me. I hope I can get a promotion. I also hope I win the lottery as that would sort it all out.”

After years of hoping, nothing changes for Joe.

Joe later on learns about fate. “The future is all mapped out. It’s out of your hands.” He concludes, “No one knows what’ll happen. Just play it by ear and go with the flow.” Joe is a speculator and spectator. He is waiting for something to happen.

LOOKING FORWARD

If you could look through a time machine and see 100 years into the future, what would you see?

If you see a space-age society with incredible computers, robots and space travel, you know the scientists, engineers and technology inventors are the most ambitious.

If society is wealthy and prosperity is available to all, you know the entrepreneurs, managers and business owners are very ambitious.

If you see a world at war and people are getting killed every day, you know arms dealers, terrorists and war-loving politicians are the most ambitious.

To see the future of our world, just look for the most persistent, passionate and intense people and you see the future.

What fires up this powerful ambition in people? How can you design and make your future?

BECOME A PLAYER

To make your future, try asking yourself, “What should I make happen? What shall I accomplish? What do I WANT in my future?” The future is like an empty field. No one is playing on it yet. You can run out there and start or improve your game.

THE GAME IS YOURS
  • Write one of your most important goals.
  • Ask yourself, “What future do I predict if I just sit on my hands and wait for this goal to be reached?”
  • Next, write down one step you can take, right now, toward this important goal.
  • Ask yourself, “If I do this one step and then another and then another, what is my future?”

And there you have it! You are predicting and making your future.

Why Ireland: Ireland’s Circular Manufacturing Economy – One Man’s Rubbish is another Man’s Treasure

For many years we have all been aware of recycling to reduce waste and your waste may be another’s treasure. I, like many others, did my bit as I went about my business thinking I was green. I have a life-long toolmaker friend who for the past 10 years and successfully been promoting industrial symbiosis.

“Symbiosis” is usually associated with nature, where two or more species co-depend by  using the other species’ waste, materials or energy in a mutually beneficial manner. Like bees and flowers, remoras – the fish that feed off of parasites on the shark’s skin and in its mouth.

Industrial symbiosis is a form of brokering to bring companies together in innovative collaborations, finding ways to use the waste from one as raw materials for another.

Now, there are real determined goals driven by policies stemming from the realisation that earth is a finite system. In essence, out of shear necessity and respect for our planet, we are shifting from a linear to a circular economy which will have positive impacts for us all personally and in business.

So the circular economy is an economic model that is restorative and regenerative by design. Ultimately in nature the concept of waste does not exist – everything is transformed into a resource that can be utilised.

The circular economy aims to keep materials, components, and products in-use in the economy for as long as possible. In circularity, the key objective is to design consumption and production systems to create and retain value.

Circularity seeks to optimise every aspect of a product’s lifecycle from raw material extraction to manufacturing and first use, and multiple use-lives thereafter, through product re-design, new business models and novel technologies and processes.

It is now widely recognised that the circular economy agenda is fundamentally intertwined with the zero-carbon agenda. Europe has committed to accelerating the transition to a circular economy – with circular principles central to the EU’s Industrial Strategy and EU Green Deal. In this context, as Ireland navigates the path to COVID-19 recovery, now is the opportunity to embed circularity in the Irish economy – creating substantial socio-economic, environmental, and business benefits.

Dynamic Innovations are involved in helping companies with design for Additive manufacturing which will contribute to a more sustainable production model of parts across every sector. Kieron is currently up-skilling by doing a Leadership course in digital manufacturing for the future.

Green Ireland is on a long term sustainable journey so plug in with Dynamic Innovations for some of the action that you can benefit from.

Why Ireland: Factories of the Future

As we all know manufacturing industries are faced with significant paradigm shifts with the advent of the 4th Industrial Revolution known as Industry 4.0 or Factory 4.0 with the introduction of game-changing ways to design and manufacture products such as Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing.

Advanced Manufacturing Ireland is at the cutting edge of these inflection points working with industry leaders to help integrate customers in parallel to the technology.

Under Factory 4.0, the introduction of next generation technologies is allowing for very complex connection of everything on the manufacturing floors with IoT* in conjunction will all sorts of measurement devices, automation and data analysis communications.

This technology as well as supply chain reliability (due to logistical costs, regulation etc.) are causing customers to re-evaluate their supply strategies. Last week, one large multinational customer stated that reliability was their #1 driver, as the cost of being late to their customer is significantly greater than trying to save some money from lower-cost countries.

How times have changed since covid and on advancement of technology. I feel privileged living in a thriving safe economy in Ireland with confidence we will continue to stay sovereign, free from war with an ever increasing educated workforce.

If you are want to explore alternative sourcing options, why not reach out to Dynamic Innovations who will connect you to sound vendors that are fit for your purposes.

Best Regards,

Kieron

Digitise your Inventory to Help Localise Your Supply with Additive Manufacturing.

Thanks to all the Additive Manufacturing speakers last week at the Manufacturing and Supply Chain Conference, in Dublin. I was privileged to moderate 12 expert speakers sharing so many insights to the benefits of 3D technology, some of which I will bullet point for you:

  • Digitising your inventory helps localise your supply for sustainability and cost.
  • Artists and designers have the freedom to imagine that’s easy to make new realities.
  • Metals, polymers and ceramics can be simultaneously printed.
  • The Oil and Gas sector is about 12 years behind Medtech and Aerospace in 3D.
  • Varieties of sensors can be embedding utilising 3D printing.
  • Take time with your children to play and learn 3D printing for fun results.
  • This technology is truly part of our sustainable future as a sustainable disrupter.
  • The integrity of metal components are comparable to conventional parts.
  • Exotic alloys such as Inconel are very cost effective to produce – zero scrap.

The following day, I was free to roam around this high-spirited exhibition. I took advantage of a variety of enlightening discussions about Industry 5.0 in particular as it takes in the circular economy future.

Thanks to Colin Murphy and team for having the courage to host this stellar event as the business community needed to get their products and services promoted despite the weary environmental challenges.

Promotion and selling are the lifeblood of business and economies so liberate yourself and learn how to rebuild your foundation of brilliance for your brands long-term survival.

Let me know if you have any questions so I can direct you to the appropriate expert speaker to best answer.

Value Engineering Benefits

Sometimes, design engineers under or over specify fit-for-purpose project requirements. Along with a host of new materials now commercially available on the market, advanced manufacturing has opened up a range of processes that were not previously possible.

Specialists in design-for-purpose and manufacturability are generally up-to-date with materials and how best to design cost effective solution, but designers with a toolmaking DNA are known to combine a holistic balance of simple mechanisms to solve complex problems, coupled with the right grade and treatment of materials. These skills feed into the commercial challenge of providing competitiveness, which includes aftermarket service to provide spare parts and ease of serving the unit.

It can be a challenge to keeping informed with manufacturing techniques, material science and process improvements unless you are at the cutting edge side of the industry, so be sure to have dynamic partners to collaborate with for your designs, as the cost of getting it wrong can mean your kit doesn’t make it in the market.
