Mark Albert's Great Article on ITAMCO and Task Force Tips

MTConnect has no greater friend than Mark Albert, Editor-in-Chief at Modern Machine Shop Magazine.  Mark writes another great article titled:

MTConnect: Two Shops Share Their Experience


It is an excellent article that brings out many great examples of ITAMCO and Task Force Tips using MTConnect.  I really like how Mark brings out these common points:

"Here are some of the positive characteristics they have in common:

• A proactive, aggressive stance toward adopting new technology.
•  A commitment to participate in the development of new technology. (Both companies actively support the MTConnect Institute as members and working group participants.)
• The ability to imagine and create in-house their own uses and applications for emerging technology. (Having staff dedicated to promoting advanced technology is important.)
• The boldness to consider and develop applications that “get ahead” of the current version of MTConnect in anticipation of benefits to come.
• The openness to share lessons learned and advice with other users and potential users of this communication standard."

This article should be read by anyone considering MTConnect.
