Manufacturing: Digital Tools Transform How Things Get Made
A New Age of Manufacturing
Today’s digital tools transform the manufacturing process from beginning to end. In the initial stages of product design, manufacturers can now develop prototypes more quickly and test them more thoroughly using AI-enabled 3D design software.
At the production stage, a new era of employees input these digital designs directly into software-enabled 3D printers, CNC machines, and computercontrolled welders that make things with digital precision.
These smarter factories,in turn, turn out smarter refrigerators, TVs, and other devices that can send data back to manufacturers, who can update the device software and design new features. April 2022
