VTT Research: This would make parts more quickly and easily available, while creating considerable cost savings. Digitalisation will also enable individual customisation and an increase in the intelligence of parts.
It's also important to look at the bigger picture. When machines do the grunt work, humans are able to solve bigger problems or spend their time in more interesting ways. This shift may well enable the next level of creative culture - the next space race, or a new Enlightenment, perhaps?

New thermal protection technology for large industrial/commercial HVAC and refrigeration systems, heavy duty transportation, conveyor belts, assembly lines, medical, energy and other complex manufacturing systems.
In the current climate of industrial trucking products, truck manufacturing companies are striving to improve their products in more efficient ways than ever.
Greg Roumeliotis for Reuters: The new offer follows Rockwell's rejections of Emerson's overtures for much of this year.
Industry Week: A new McKinsey report predicts that manufacturing GDP would climb to $3 trillion in real terms by 2025-a boost of some $530 billion, or 20%, above the current trend.
There are advances happening every day with 3D printing, such as medical solutions, shoes and other apparel, houses and even food. 3D Printing has quickly changed our way of living with its unexpected uses.
Overall, the capabilities afforded by IIoT mean that these technologies are not just short-term investments or solutions to immediate problems; rather, they enable continuous improvement by providing companies with the ability to solve new problems as they arise-compounding the value of the investment over time.
John Hitch for Industry Week: IBM's Watson IoT sees all and might even know it all. In a new simulation, you can feel what it likes to have it working for you.
Adding robot systems to any stage in food and beverage manufacturing will help to increase throughput. Robots work consistently, around-the-clock allowing for dependable production rates. The latest innovations increase production flexibility and decrease changeover time.
We have to find a balance between interrupting production and trying something that will improve production. As we increase capacity at a rate that outpaces our marketing experts we hope to have a span of time where we'll be able to have some freedom to experiment and optimize.
TJ McCue for Forbes: Many relatively small companies are providing printers and software for these new 3D print clusters, or farms, as many call them.
Purvai Dua for London Loves Business: Britain's manufacturing sector could add Â£455bn over the next decade and create thousands of jobs if it unlocks the fourth industrial revolution
In terms of design for manufacturing, laser-cutting technology can have a beneficial effect on any product. Cost and quality are two major influences on the marketability of any product, and laser cutting allows for high-quality components at a lower cost overall, therefore making it possible to offer a more affordable, better quality product.
Redesigned wet processing tool significantly extends photoresist stripping bath life, providing dramatic savings on chemicals and disposal costs.
