Jabil digital manufacturing solutions seamlessly integrate data and communications to rapidly adapt production processes and meet ever-changing market conditions.
Smart, connected machines and Industry 4.0 are the key to digital manufacturing. Production machines and systems have embedded sensors that measure any number of metrics such as material quality, size, cosmetic appearance, weight, environmental conditions, temperature, air cleanliness, and humidity. Using a variety of wireless and wireline technologies, these sensors interact with enterprise systems to connect decentralized production facilities, suppliers, logistics, and consumers for true, end-to-end lifecycle management.
What’s driving digital manufacturing?
The benefits of digital manufacturing are huge. It enables faster, real-time decisions, with more flexible and efficient business processes. The impact will extend globally, adding an estimated $14.2 trillion to 20 of the world’s major economies in the next 15 years. It could drive $2.7 trillion in economic value from waste reduction and increase U.S. gross domestic product by 2% by 2030. Customers benefit through reduced time-to-market and lower costs from more-efficient capital investments and optimized inventories. There is less waste, and a significantly-smaller carbon footprint.
Digital manufacturing is giving customers better access to goods and services than ever before. That’s why Jabil partners depend on our digital manufacturing solutions to bring more of their products safely to market faster than ever before, at lower costs, and, of course, with superior quality.
