The slow journey to the paperless factory

The slow journey to the paperless factory
We can all agree that yes, a sheet of A4 is convenient, but your data won't be exact or real time. Well, more than a decade after we started talking about the paperless factory, it has yet to arrive. While the internet has revolutionised how we operate, with connectivity transforming how information moves around the enterprise, it is common to see a lot of paper moving around too – and this is especially true on the shop floor.

Small modular reactors are key to solving the skills deficit

Small modular reactors are key to solving the skills deficit
Playing a major part in the ‘future of nuclear’, Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) are an intriguing development for the UK’s decarbonised future. Creating £60 per megawatt hour once mature SMR technology will play a key role in reinvigorating the UK energy industry. That being said, although there are strong targets and interest in the recent Government investment placed in new nuclear technologies, in order to drive this nuclear evolution forward, much more than just financial investment is required.
