The Big M: Manufacturing In Michigan

Thursday, May 29, 2014

Craig speaks with SME's Director of Industry Strategy and Events Debbie Holton about Michigan's manufacturing industry. The two discuss the future of manufacturing ahead of a Manufacturing Convergence event taking place at the Cobo Center in Detroit next month.

Holton tells Craig, "there's a ton of innovation in manufacturing," and the industry is headed in a direction that should make young people excited. The field connects creativity with the latest technology. 3-D printing for example, has advanced tremendously in the last few years in manufacturing and consumer markets alike. "Things like virtual reality, 3-D printing, that's the future of manufacturing," she says.
