Digital Factories Coming SoonFebruary 20, 2019
Apple, Amazon, Google and Facebook have accomplished this. So, too, will manufacturers, as the shift toward digital workflow designs and additive manufacturing (AM) processes gains momentum. The accomplishment? The creation of platforms to transform customer experiences. We’re talking everything from market analysis to design; product development to manufacturing; and supply-chain relationships to final production. In short, manufacturers need to break free from the traditional factory floor, with its long lead times and generations-old processes, and become digital operations.
So how do you get there? Your factory becomes a digital operation when your product intellectual property is digital. With digital workflow intellectual property, your manufacturing methods and your supply-chain relationships become digital. Digital factories augment, rather than replace, traditional manufacturing.
“Establishment of digital workflows enables manufacturers to create more shapes in more ways, for applications such as medical devices and complex aerospace structures.”
We see this in digital part designs that create strong value propositions, reducing the overall time-to-market with the right material combinations and 3D printers.
