Tech-Clarity Issue in Focus: Digital Prototyping in the Plant: Improving Manufacturing Agility with the Digital Factory discusses how digital prototyping solutions can help manufacturers achieve greater agility by leveraging a digital factory approach. This is particularly important today as the manufacturing industries – particularly the automotive industry – are faced with the need to drastically
Leveraging the Digital Factory: Enhancing Productivity from Operator to Enterprise provides visibility to the way manufacturers utilize Manufacturing Process Management (MPM) processes and solutions to help reduce cost, speed time to market, and improve product quality. The paper features interviews from companies that are leveraging MPM to digitally prototype plant layouts, material flow, production lines,
A quick peek into some research on … the use of digital prototyping techniques and technologies to design (and redesign) efficient manufacturing plants. Most of the times I discuss “digital prototyping” it regards products. But the same concepts apply when using digital prototyping in the plant – namely using digital models to increase design efficiency and get designs right the first time. Today I am happy to share my new report with you, Digital Prototyping in the Plant: Improving Manufacturing Agility with the Digital Factory.
