Speaking at Advanced Engineering UK 2015 – taking place November 4-5 at the NEC in Birmingham – Assembled Electronics Solutions (AES) founder Nigel Maris will tell businesses to adopt disruptive innovation in order to keep afloat in the Internet of Everything age.
“Disruptive innovation allows us to challenge the industry norm, giving our customers a competitive edge to compete with increasingly global competition, react to the demands of technology-savvy customers and create our own markets which in turn can shorten lead times,” said Maris. “By combining all of the benefits of disruptive innovation, you are able to streamline the manufacturing process, decreasing overhead costs and improving productivity and efficiency.”
AES was established in 2009 with a focus on creating value for clients using innovation, design and technology to bring new products to market or to extend the life-cycle of existing products. With its origins in the UK manufacture of printed circuit boards for more than forty years, AES has manufactured electronics devices for applications as diverse as automotive, lighting, airborne and underwater systems, medical equipment and security devices.
“Everything is becoming interconnected and the Internet of Things (IoT) is fast becoming the Internet of Everything. With the speed of integrating IoT technologies rapidly increasing, companies are lagging behind in realising the opportunities on offer,” said Maris. “At Advanced Engineering 2015, I’ll be warning that businesses must expect these changes and act now in order to future-proof their operations.”
Since its inception, turnover for AES has quadrupled. Mr Maris hopes to replicate this success with soon-to-be-launched sister company of AES, EveryWare, which allows businesses to harness the power of real time analysis to identify inefficiencies that could be losing money and resolve these issues instantly.
“What if the manufacturer could predict when their components were worn out, or close to failure? What if they could be on-site for their customers to change the component without prompting?” said Mr Maris. “AES and EveryWare can do just that, by providing innovative, joined-up, dissimilar technologies to gather meaningful data that can be converted to real cost savings.”
