Developmental Progress with the Insertion of Mobile Phones into the Infrastructure
– Africa, often seen as a third-world continent, has had dramatic developmental progress with the insertion of mobile phones into the infrastructure. Most mobile devices are the simple, low-end brands, of which tens of millions have already been sold across the continent. As prices drop, the more expensive “smartphones”, such as the Blackberry, have been increasing in popularity, bucking the market trends in North America and Europe. Between the years 2000 and 2010, mobile phone subscriptions for some companies have increased nearly 500-fold….
Mobile Maintenance Management
– Since the early 2000s the manufacturing industry has trended towards employing preventive maintenance methodologies in production areas in order to maintain a competitive advantage. Industries have used a process called “condition monitoring” to identify critical equipment parameters such as temperature, vibration and visual inspection characteristics such as leaks and abnormal noise to predict and prevent mechanical failure.
