Top 10 Digital Manufacturing Solution Providers – 2019
The manufacturing industry has been constantly pushing its technological envelope since the first industrial revolution. Today, it is in the midst of another paradigm shift, as a new generation of sophisticated technologies is transforming manufacturing into a highly connected, intelligent, and, ultimately, more productive realm. The manual processes-driven shop floor of the past is being replaced by smart manufacturing facilities where tech-savvy workers, aided by intelligent robots, are creating the products of the future.
For the modern manufacturer, data is no longer just the purview of IT; from supply chain management to the operations floor, data is now omnipresent across the organization. As data gets further unified across a firm, data-driven manufacturers will start converging the realms of IT and OT.
That said, intelligent manufacturing is not just about data; it is about using data to make automated decisions, predictions, and realtime optimizations across the end-to-end value chain. Thus, with the help of AI-based advanced analytics, modern manufacturers are now bringing down labor costs, reducing product defects, shortening unplanned downtime, improving transition times, and
increasing production speed—all while making manufacturing more flexible.
