Why 3-D printing could be a manufacturing and logistics game changer
Manufacturing Business Technology
From Oct. 29: In October of 1913, Henry Ford's entire automobile factory began building its vehicles using a continuously moving assembly line. This revolutionary step changed the manufacturing game at the time, cutting the production time for the Model T down from more than 12 hours to fewer than six from start to finish.

The New York Times
From Jan. 22: VideoBrief Despite its status as the Motor City, Detroit has only two automobile plants entirely within the city limits. One is Chrysler's Conner Avenue Assembly Plant, which reopened in December after being closed for more than three years during the automaker's bankruptcy.

3-D printing, robotics and the future of manufacturing
eCommerce Times
From July 23: Imagine a manufacturing floor making sophisticated products through the use of 3-D printers being overseen and fed by robots. That's a frightening scenario for the worker employed in manufacturing. In the face of this unfolding, never-before-witnessed scenario, the manufacturer must constantly be on the leading edge of technology and the worker must constantly update his or her skills. The potential of 3-D printing and robotics is nothing if not inspiring but it's difficult even to imagine the extent of the inroads they will make in our manufacturing base or the myriad of products they'll eventually produce.
