COVID-19, Digital Manufacturing

The COVID-19 pandemic is killing tens of thousands of people, changing social norms, and rattling markets.

It also has exposed weaknesses in the global supply chain and has demonstrated why the industry’s move toward digital manufacturing is more crucial now than ever.

MxD’s Vice President of Strategy & Engagement Jennifer Pilat discusses the lessons we’ve learned already, just weeks into the COVID-19 crisis.

“This is a time when you can’t afford to give up your efforts toward digitization,” says Pilat, who also worked on manufacturing policy for 4 ½ years in the U.S. Department of Commerce. “Because digitization is going to help you ultimately recover from this — and will help you be better prepared in the future.”
