3 Ways Manufacturers Can Leverage Insight Engines
As distributed manufacturing gains adoption by some of the world’s largest companies, products are finding their way into the hands of customers faster than ever before. But in the process, companies are becoming increasingly disconnected and less efficient in new areas.
Unlike in traditional manufacturing, where materials are assembled in remote, centralized factories and shipped to customers, distributed manufacturing takes place at multiple, decentralized plants where products are assembled closer to the customer.
The process of leveraging a network of geographically dispersed manufacturing facilities connected over the Internet helps eliminate many of the inefficiencies of traditional manufacturing. However, distributed manufacturing creates new challenges in the form of separate entities, languages and processes.
