Is it really possible that another Ignition Community Conference has come and gone?

Lean Six Sigma: Where Waste Reduction Meets Quality Improvement Sam Russem Mon, 05/20/2019 - 08:51

No matter which industry they’re in, industrial organizations should strive to make their processes as free from waste and inconsistency as possible. What program is best at helping them get there? Many manufacturers have found that a program known as Lean Six Sigma is the most effective methodology for continuously improving their processes. However, even when a company has decided to implement Lean Six Sigma, other questions can remain: What is the first step we should take? Who in the organization should be involved? How do we measure our progress? And, should software play a role?

Our Perspective on the Vision Module Carl Gould and… Wed, 10/03/2018 - 11:43
At ICC 2018, we announced that Ignition 8 will be released in February 2019. A major part of Ignition 8 is the all-new Ignition Perspective Module, which will offer Ignition users a mobile-first, browser-based design environment for the first time. Perspective is the kind of solution we’ve been wanting to build for years and our excitement about it must’ve been contagious because we’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about Perspective and its relationship to the Vision Module. Some of you have even asked if Perspective is replacing the Vision Module in the near future. Our short answer is no, the Vision Module isn’t going anywhere; in fact, Ignition 8 will include major improvements to Vision. We’re excited to release Perspective and we know that Vision will continue to be a valuable, highly effective module.
