Manufacturing Convergence and the Industrial Internet of Things - Gray Consruction
Manufacturing has always been a process — raw material at one end, finished product at the other. But more and more, manufacturing is the site where many processes are converging: computer-aided design (CAD), process simulation, the actual machining processes plus machine tool monitoring and adjusting, plant and shipping logistics and much more, all made possible over the Internet, specifically the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

SyncFab to Create Manufacturing Jobs Through Blockchain -
The hope is to reduce pollution and the use of resourcing by manufacturing locally. To build parts in America rather than across the ocean, which reduces the need for ships that burn fossil fuels.

To this end, SyncFab is working with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Initiative and the cities of San Leandro and San Francisco. A long-term goal at SyncFab is to encourage work from home, startup entrepreneurship, and small businesses.

Manufacturing outlook: Technology and tax to take center stage in 2018 - PwC Industrial Insights
In 2017, the terms “IoT” and “digital” seemed to be the most trending topics within the manufacturing sector. Although most manufacturers are talking about IoT and digital, far fewer have implemented a comprehensive digital strategy. Those manufacturers without a digital strategy could be hindering their business strategy in 2018 and beyond.

While we understand that moving toward a digital transformation is overwhelming, the reality is that digital is the future for manufacturers both big and small.

The MIT Developer Revolutionizing U.S. Factory Jobs - Somerville, MA Patch
As many Americans despair over disappearing factory jobs and fear being replaced by a machine, Natan Linder has set out to arm assembly-line workers with cutting-edge technology and help preserve the U.S. manufacturing market. He's launched Tulip, an app that connects every element of a production line to a data collection program where it can be analyzed so crews can smarten and streamline their operation. New Balance and Merck have signed on. A byproduct, Linder hopes, is attracting a qualified younger generation to help fill 3.5 million jobs the Manufacturing Institute, a Washington-based think tank, has predicted will become available over the next decade. Linder, who arrived at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Media Lab from Israel in 2008, cofounded 3D printing company Formlabs in Somerville before launching Tulip, the result of almost a decade of research.

Middle Market Manufacturers: Surprisingly Suited to Capitalize on IoT Advantages? - BDO Manufacturing Output Newsletter
Manufacturers are waking up to the Internet of Things (IoT) opportunity. According to BI Intelligence, companies will spend nearly $6 trillion on IoT solutions in the next five years, and by 2020, 24 billion devices will be IoT-enabled. Whether you’re a large-scale global manufacturer or a middle market company in growth mode, the IoT holds promise. While middle market companies may be slower on the adoption curve than their larger competitors, they have a critical opportunity to drive innovation and evolve as IoT leaders rather than followers.
