Podcast: The Voice of Smart Digital Manufacturing: Closed-Loop Manufacturing is Critical
Closed-loop manufacturing seeks to increase efficiency in resource usage and data flow throughout the production line. It promotes a faster flow of information that is aimed at increasing the quality of the products and production efficiency. This is why the medical device industry, which operates under strict regulatory frameworks, has embraced it as part of the digital transformation.
