A Call for Artificial Intelligence Tools to Support Manufacturing Innovation



Vijay Srinivasan


We are in the midst of a renewed interest in manufacturing. Developed economies in the West are increasingly concerned about the decline in manufacturing in their countries, and have linked that decline to high unemployment and low economic growth. In simple terms, they have come to the realization that they have to make things to make it in the 21st century. They also realize that old forms of manufacturing are not coming back to their rescue. So they are turning to manufacturing innovation to bring new ways of making things to their shores. They sense that recent advances in information, communication, and network technologies may provide a vigorous platform to launch such innovation in manufacturing. There is considerable evidence that this may indeed be possible.
