Modern technology is changing nearly every industry whose products are meant for mainstream consumption. We have mostly realized the impact of advancements in software and hardware technology over the past 2 decades. Moreover, there has been a general improvement in production engineering with scientists coming up with superior working tools and machines. This has had a significant impact on manufacturing and engineering production across the world. The following are a few ways through which technology has influenced this field.
With computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), we have seen manufacturing transform into a relatively effortless activity where the engineer only needs to worry about integrating core-manufacturing principles into the clients’ products. Technology has simplified and streamlined the technical aspects of design such that the engineers can focus on the core design duties. Computer-aided manufacturing is particularly indispensable as it streamlines the process of production.
