Welcome to Field of View

Open your eyes, and move them from left to right. What do you see? Our field of view shows us the greatest extent of what we can perceive and understand. Once you start moving your head from left to right and new things enter your field of view, your understanding grows. This simple idea is what motivated the Field of View blog.

Field of View serves as a collaboration forum where thought leadership intersects with what matters to you.

As designers, engineers, and manufacturers, we are driven to optimize and improve. We ask questions and seek answers. We are curious and innovative. We take our time solving problems and we make sure the job is done right. Yet, in many ways, our industry is slow to change, and continues to do things the same old way. There isn’t a forum to discuss new ideas, challenge traditional methods, or bring concepts to life. We are stuck in our tunnel vision and our limited field of view without seeing a bigger picture.

That’s where Field of View comes in. Field of View serves as a collaboration forum where thought leadership intersects with what matters to you. We’re inviting subject matter experts to provide opinions, observations, and thoughts on today’s toughest challenges and innovative trends in our industry. From the technology experts who have witnessed the evolution of manufacturing since the ‘70s and ‘80s, to the forward-thinking visionaries embracing the newest technologies and advancements, we want to create conversations that will radically change manufacturing industries and expand our individual fields of view.

We will shine a light on pain points, identify exciting innovations, and inspire each other to optimize and streamline our outdated perceptions.

Whether we discuss product design, lifecycle management, the Internet of Things, collaboration techniques, or Industry 4.0, our goal remains constant: to expand our own field of view and consider a greater vision. Together, we can take off our blinders, and combine our fields of view to see everything. We will shine a light on pain points, identify exciting innovations, and inspire each other to optimize and streamline our outdated perceptions.

We look forward to this journey with you. I invite you to join in the conversation. If you have questions or want to contribute to the conversation, please contact us at the Vertex website.
