By connecting manufacturing leaders with end-users, implementing machines that are able to maintain themselves and teaching current employees how to work with the new line of industrial robotics, proactive and tech-savvy manufacturers are in a position to revolutionize the way they do business from this point forward.
Scott Kirsner for Boston Globe: The revolution is about three things: more advanced software for designing things; devices like 3-D printers that can quickly crank out a prototype; and robots and other technologies that will make the factory floor more efficient and flexible.

You need a new way of thinking, you need different training, you need different machines. This whole ecosystem is quite different from how we did things before.
Connected Manufacturing is the ability to drive data that is meaningful to the cloud for big data analysis. The current trend in Industry 4.0 is to be able to sense specific points in end equipment to enable advanced analytics to be run on distributed edge computing devices to determine whether machines are operating within tolerances and predict a potential failure before it happens.
By connecting their factories all over the world, manufacturers can see the entire operation. They can make updates in real-time. They have vision into which plants are running efficiently or where there are production issues.
Michael Molitch-Hou for Engineering.com: At Formlabs' Digital Factory event in Boston, Mass., the firm unveiled the Form Cell, a system for batch production using Form 2 SLA 3D printers, and the Fuse 1, its desktop selective laser sintering (SLS) machine.
Alex Knapp for Forbes: That push for innovation is one reason why Team Penske signed a deal with 3D printing company Stratasys earlier this year for technical support and services.
Sydney Baum-Haines for Minnesota Daily: The method has the potential to print tactile sensors onto prosthetic limbs or surgical robots.
Traditionally, raw materials and inventory of finished goods were considered assets. This notion has changed because of JIT and now inventory is considered as waste or dead investment, incurring additional costs.
Addresses need for tech skills in manufacturing workforce
This technology can be used to fabricate microstructures with outstanding mechanical properties, which have promising potential uses in implants and other biomedical applications.
Strong authentication of all devices within an IIoT network is one of the fundamental requirements for securing these networks.
Although it's still in an evolutionary state, big data is already showing tremendous potential across nearly all industries, professions and applications.
