How Control Over Part Data Will Expand and Simplify Supply Chains
Digital rights management for manufactured part files will enable OEMs to enforce manufacturing requirements at a distance, as an alternative to in-person certification of suppliers.

this part is machined from solid, but it used to be a cast part

What Does It Take to Succeed at Machining Hogouts?
Beyond the machining capacity, other important factors relate to the people and the understanding of the process.
