In partnership with global technology and service provider Microsoft, PSFK presents the Future of Manufacturing report, an illustrated look at new manufacturing solutions and the technologies that are enabling successful production in a dynamic, fast-paced world.
The manufacturing industry has long thrived by adopting a reactionary approach to production—customer demand influences output, maintenance is performed in response to system breakdowns. However, by leveraging cloud-first digital networks in their operations, and deriving data and usage stats from their finished products, manufacturers can be one step ahead of fluctuating market demands and rapidly deliver high-quality goods. Guided by end-to-end transparency, collaborative knowledge platforms and cloud-based production lines, a new manufacturing vision ensures total operational agility.
In the report, we illustrate this new era of connected production with five forward thinking scenarios that present cloud-first solutions to conflicts that are inhibiting today's manufacturers. Insights from industry experts and strategies for decision makers explore these shifts further and provide tips for actualizing success through these changes.
