Via Quality Magazine

In the world of design and manufacturing, there’s often a disconnect in communication and interpretation caused by location and language barriers.

This post breaks down the specific challenges, and how big data can help overcome them. An impactful method is by changing from a document-based strategy to a model-based strategy. This keeps a complete digital file of information that can be passed along to all involved.

The article then moves on to the importance of adhering to quality standards such as ISO to achieve the most efficient processes.
