There has been a renaissance in manufacturing, with a resurgence of domestic ‘on shoring’, capitalizing on networked big data analytics and harnessing the ‘Industrial Internet of Things’ to combine the physical and digital worlds working in unison to create more precise, efficient, better maintained, and smarter manufacturing capabilities. Many refer to this renaissance as Advanced Manufacturing or Manufacturing 2.0.
Whether you specialize in metalworking, printing, plastics, composites, ceramics, or manufacture integrated industries such as automotive, aviation, food and beverage, life sciences, defense, or consumer products, there are likely advanced attributes associated with your business. Your risks may have evolved with these advances. For example, networked industrial control systems that manipulate robotically controlled production lines could suffer physical damage based on a remotely orchestrated cyber-incident. Likewise, you may be working with a novel material that has no well-established occupational exposure limit. How do you not only recognize the issue but address it?
