Industrial Innovations

Digitization & automation are the future of factories.

When faced with slowing growth or declining profits, many industrial manufacturers are turning toward digitization to create new revenue streams and stay competitive in today’s technologically advanced market. Research shows industrial manufacturing companies are committing up to 5% of annual revenues - cumulatively $907B per year, according to one source - toward digitization in the form of embedded systems, factory automation, cloud connectivity and data monetization.

Nottingham Spirk’s experience helping manufacturing companies push themselves into adjacent or entirely new categories lends itself exceptionally well to the industrial world. If you are an industrial manufacturing leader, now is the time to consider how your product portfolio or business model could evolve in the future to best accommodate the changing market. Moving fast is more important than ever.

Our Approach to Industrial Innovation

New ways to tackle old problems

Industrial innovation means finding new ways to tackle some of the age-old pain points in manufacturing. Industrial manufacturers are often trying to reduce operational downtime and maximize throughput. Add in the effects of an aging workforce and the scarcity of skilled labor, and many of today’s manufacturers are looking for scalable solutions to stay relevant and competitive.

Nottingham Spirk’s focus for industrial manufacturers is finding the most cost-effective way to grow. If downtime is killing your profitability, perhaps implementing a predictive maintenance system with embedded sensors and cloud-based data collection is the right solution for you. If employee satisfaction and retention is your biggest issue, we can help you come up with the best way to keep your workers well-trained and professionally fulfilled.

Not all innovations are product-based, although many are. But don’t forget to consider service-based revenue streams, operational efficiency gains, or other means of growth. Let’s explore what kind of innovation solutions can help you solve your toughest challenges and stay competitive for decades to come.

Creative Collisions: The Spark of Inspiration for Vertical Innovation™

Hackathons are popular, but are they useful? In an essay titled, “Why Hackathons are Bad for Innovation,” a consultant and an MIT lecturer made a point about these brainstorming sessions, and about creativity in general, that’s often overlooked: “Innovation is usually a lurching journey of discovery and problem-solving. As a result, it’s an iterative, often slow-moving process that requires patience and discipline.”
