Manufacturing Innovation at Work Enhancing innovation: Public-private partnerships, industry consortiums, and accessible digital tools will transition cutting-edge discoveries into break-through products. Diffusing new technology along the supply chain: From OEMs to at-home-designers, manufacturers can adopt technological tools including open source software, additive manufacturing, and simulation computing, to reduce time to market and increase competitiveness.
Manufacturing Innovation at Work Connecting environmental and economic sustainability: Manufacturing firms are finding connections between environmental and economic sustainability, and are embracing green chemistry and biomimicry design as both a cost-cutting and innovation mechanisms. Increasing exports: Coordinated regional strategies are identifying globally competitive industries, providing required capital, and connecting small and medium sized manufacturers to export markets can promote commercialization and production.
The Third Industrial Revolution As manufacturing goes digital, it will allow things to be made: economically in much smaller numbers; more flexibly; and with much lower input of labor. New materials, completely new processes such as 3D printing, easy-to-use robots and new collaborative manufacturing services available online are behind these changes.
