Donal Reddington on mass customization, crowdsourcing and digital manufacturing


Article on Next Generation PLM

Automation systems website ISA.org carries an interesting article on Next Generation Product Lifecycle Management (PLM).

One interesting quote from the article:

“The aerospace and automobile industries now see themselves as system integrators; their role is not to manufacture all of the underlying parts and components but to purchase them from a global marketplace. In this new context, managing variety and providing mass customization have become the driving forces in organizing design and manufacturing organizations.”
