Industry Focus: Digital Manufacturing

The need for a more flexible and responsive manufacturing infrastructure has been apparent for some time. Periodic disruptions in the manufacturing chain caused by trade restrictions, freak weather, and shipping inefficiencies have stressed the just-in-time nature of manufacturing for years, and the recent pandemic made those problems even more apparent.

Digital manufacturing approaches can help companies make it easier to link design and production, increase visibility of the factory floor, and make it easier to re-tool and shift production in response to real-time supply and operational interruptions.

In this Special Focus Issue, our writers examine the use of digital twins in manufacturing and design, IP protection in a digital environment, and how a variety of different manufacturing sectors are embracing this change.

Inside This Issue:
