Top 20 Manufacturing Technology Solution Companies - 2020

The evolution of Manufacturing Industry and Processes could be traced along the same lines as the IT Industry. One of the primary and common factors in the evolution cycle of these industries is reducing Human Interface.

From yesterday's manual manufacturing processes, the industry today has made a shift towards and has started witnessing the benefits of Digital Manufacturing. As the name suggests, Digital Manufacturing simulates all the manufacturing processes on the computers to define the most efficient processes for the companies. The entire manufacturing process right from Assembly lines, human ergonomic simulation, Robotic Simulation, and plant layout among others could be defined, developed, implemented, and monitored virtually in the 3D environment. Thanks to the latest and most remarkable technologies, today's companies can try out many "what if" scenarios at minimum costs to validate their processes and arrive at the most optimum solutions. They can try all the options through simulation and finally incorporate those suitable changes in the actual practice, which would best benefit them.

This results in enabling companies to achieve the utmost production efficiency in reduced time and costs, thereby facilitating early entry to the market. Highlighting such new technological developments in the manufacturing tech market, CIOReview has compiled a list of '20 Most Promising Manufacturing Technology Solution Providers' that are making waves in the manufacturing technology sector. The enlisted organizations are transforming the manufacturing research operations at the convergence of several disruptive technologies. Besides, the magazine also comprises insights from thought leaders in the sector on the industry trends, best practices, recent innovations, and their advice for the aspiring CIOs.

We present to you CIOReview's, "20 Most Promising Manufacturing Technology Solution Providers - 2020."
