Much of the buzz surrounding advances in digital technology concerns consumer products and services. However, digital will profoundly influence many big industries, including manufacturing, in the next few years. While a considerable number of manufacturers still have old-school, offline operations, that number will drop to almost zero in the next five years — and that’s just the beginning.
A few forward-looking companies are already leading the way in digital manufacturing and experiencing major gains in speed, effectiveness, and more as a result. Even manufacturers who aren’t currently taking part in the digital revolution still recognize the need to innovate soon with digital technology.
