A year ago I shared 8 predictions outlining the massive shifts about to happen in manufacturing in an Association for Manufacturing Excellence article. They refer to what I call “Manufacturing 5.0” and are well worth 5 minutes of your time because they’re quite different from what the media still refers to as Manufacturing 4.0. The set of 4.0 predictions from the Manufacturers’ Leadership Council are equally interesting. As we look ahead to 2019, each and every one of last year’s predictions are still relevant because they’re going to take time to happen right up until they reach a tipping point within the next few years.  I’d value your feedback – send me an email with your thoughts after you read the predictions here.
