Says Bilello, “The capabilities provided by these solutions best support small- to medium-size manufacturing companies that design/engineer parts, components, and assemblies that are low to medium in complexity. These companies focus their requirements on data vault management, workflow automation, and applications that support specific needs in the engineering/manufacturing process such as change management, process planning, quality assurance, and delivering product definition information to the shop floor.”

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
