The World's FIRST MTConnect iPhone App by ITAMCO

Sometimes in life you meet a young engineer and you think, "this person is just brilliant and really has their act together and will go very far in life."  When I met Joel Neidig a Systems Engineer at  ITAMCO, those were the exact thoughts that went through my head.   Joel Neidig is someone to watch and track in manufacturing.  He absolutely understands what must happen in manufacturing at all levels to drive the change that is needed to be globally competitive in the 21st century.  Just as an fyi, ITAMCO is the abbreviation for Indiana Technology and Manufacturing Companies and has been in business for 55 years,

I met Joel at the last MTConnect Technical Advisory Committee meeting where he showed me a number of very cool apps that he has written and given away.  Here are just a few of the apps Joel has written:
