Developing Digital Manufacturing Capability for U.S. Industry: Re-shaping the Enterprise
Nathan W. Hartman, Ed.D, Professor & Associate Head of Computer Graphics, Purdue Polytechnic Institute
Accompanying many technological advancements is often a change in a discipline’s knowledge base and ways of working, but also within the academic community and labor pool from which it draws its employees. The renaissance occurring today in U.S. manufacturing is not unlike those that occurred at other points in history – it will be transformative and disruptive at the same time. However, unlike those industrial revolutions from the past, the transformation within the modern manufacturing enterprise, its supply network, and its workforce will rely on automation and accessibility of information in addition to automation of production or products. The leveling effect of real-time analytics, modeling and simulation, and predictive capability within the design, production, and business IT platforms for making more accurate and timely business decisions can offset lower labor costs provided elsewhere. This presentation will discuss one of the key elements of that future environment – the digital enterprise – and the impact of digitization on the accompanying manufacturing and workforce revolution.
