Enterprise 3D Printing and Distributed Manufacturing
The terms 3D Printing and additive manufacturing (AM) both refer to the same technologies that take three-dimensional digital models and create a physical object or product. Many manufacturing companies currently use AM for prototyping, but companies have struggled to match the productivity and low cost of an automated assembly line in mass production with AM. Fortunately, AM does have current business use cases for complex manufacturing with many parts or intricate geometries, low-volume plastic parts, and highly customized parts, as well as replacement parts via distributed manufacturing platforms. Because of this, aerospace and defence, as well as medicine and dentistry, already see growth in AM use.Continue
Reports & Data
Historically, a disconnect has existed between IT and OT in most organizations.

All parties must communicate and solve problems together.
