Modern technology has transformed our lives, and how many businesses operate – manufacturing is no exception.
New technologies, discoveries, and process improvements have pathed the way for advanced manufacturing.
What is Advanced Manufacturing?
Manufacturing.gov defines advanced manufacturing as:
Use of innovative technologies to create existing products and the creation of new products. Advanced manufacturing can include production activities that depend on information, automation, computation, software, sensing, and networking.
In other words, advanced manufacturing incorporates technology into manufacturing processes. This doesn’t mean full automation or robots taking over jobs – instead, it’s technology that employees can leverage to make their jobs better.
A common example you might see is computerized displays in machines, or machines that “speak to” each other to transfer information about a part.
