As technology continues its rapid advance, traditional business practices are constantly put to the test. It becomes even more imperative for companies to challenge the usual to stay relevant. Innovation is a way to achieve this, as it drives change and turns it into reality.
The latest issue of WayUp features stories that focus on innovation and how digital technology can be integrated into an organization’s operations, culture and mindset. The world’s first next-generation bioproduct mill in Äänekoski, Finland, is an excellent case in point. Built by Metsä Group, the facility uses Konecranes equipment such as an automatic train loading system to support the production of 1.3 million tons of pulp per year.
The rise of self-driving vehicles is also examined, along with the use of augmented reality, virtual reality and mixed reality in an industrial setting. Meanwhile, for established players that wish to maintain a leading edge in the era of digital disruption, an article on how to think like a start-up should prove to be interesting.
These fresh insights – and more – can be found in WayUp 2/2017.
