The digitisation of manufacturing will transform the way goods are made—and change the politics of jobs too

THE first industrial revolution began in Britain in the late 18th century, with the mechanisation of the textile industry. Tasks previously done laboriously by hand in hundreds of weavers’ cottages were brought together in a single cotton mill, and the factory was born. The second industrial revolution came in the early 20th century, when Henry Ford mastered the moving assembly line and ushered in the age of mass production. The first two industrial revolutions made people richer and more urban. Now a third revolution is under way. Manufacturing is going digital. As this week’s special report argues, this could change not just business, but much else besides.

A number of remarkable technologies are converging: clever software, novel materials, more dexterous robots, new processes (notably three-dimensional printing) and a whole range of web-based services. The factory of the past was based on cranking out zillions of identical products: Ford famously said that car-buyers could have any colour they liked, as long as it was black. But the cost of producing much smaller batches of a wider variety, with each product tailored precisely to each customer’s whims, is falling. The factory of the future will focus on mass customisation—and may look more like those weavers’ cottages than Ford’s assembly line.

The old way of making things involved taking lots of parts and screwing or welding them together. Now a product can be designed on a computer and “printed” on a 3D printer, which creates a solid object by building up successive layers of material. The digital design can be tweaked with a few mouseclicks. The 3D printer can run unattended, and can make many things which are too complex for a traditional factory to handle. In time, these amazing machines may be able to make almost anything, anywhere—from your garage to an African village.

The applications of 3D printing are especially mind-boggling. Already, hearing aids and high-tech parts of military jets are being printed in customised shapes. The geography of supply chains will change. An engineer working in the middle of a desert who finds he lacks a certain tool no longer has to have it delivered from the nearest city. He can simply download the design and print it. The days when projects ground to a halt for want of a piece of kit, or when customers complained that they could no longer find spare parts for things they had bought, will one day seem quaint.

Other changes are nearly as momentous. New materials are lighter, stronger and more durable than the old ones. Carbon fibre is replacing steel and aluminium in products ranging from aeroplanes to mountain bikes. New techniques let engineers shape objects at a tiny scale. Nanotechnology is giving products enhanced features, such as bandages that help heal cuts, engines that run more efficiently and crockery that cleans more easily. Genetically engineered viruses are being developed to make items such as batteries. And with the internet allowing ever more designers to collaborate on new products, the barriers to entry are falling. Ford needed heaps of capital to build his colossal River Rouge factory; his modern equivalent can start with little besides a laptop and a hunger to invent.

Like all revolutions, this one will be disruptive. Digital technology has already rocked the media and retailing industries, just as cotton mills crushed hand looms and the Model T put farriers out of work. Many people will look at the factories of the future and shudder. They will not be full of grimy machines manned by men in oily overalls. Many will be squeaky clean—and almost deserted. Some carmakers already produce twice as many vehicles per employee as they did only a decade or so ago. Most jobs will not be on the factory floor but in the offices nearby, which will be full of designers, engineers, IT specialists, logistics experts, marketing staff and other professionals. The manufacturing jobs of the future will require more skills. Many dull, repetitive tasks will become obsolete: you no longer need riveters when a product has no rivets.

The revolution will affect not only how things are made, but where. Factories used to move to low-wage countries to curb labour costs. But labour costs are growing less and less important: a $499 first-generation iPad included only about $33 of manufacturing labour, of which the final assembly in China accounted for just $8. Offshore production is increasingly moving back to rich countries not because Chinese wages are rising, but because companies now want to be closer to their customers so that they can respond more quickly to changes in demand. And some products are so sophisticated that it helps to have the people who design them and the people who make them in the same place. The Boston Consulting Group reckons that in areas such as transport, computers, fabricated metals and machinery, 10-30% of the goods that America now imports from China could be made at home by 2020, boosting American output by $20 billion-55 billion a year.

The shock of the new

Consumers will have little difficulty adapting to the new age of better products, swiftly delivered. Governments, however, may find it harder. Their instinct is to protect industries and companies that already exist, not the upstarts that would destroy them. They shower old factories with subsidies and bully bosses who want to move production abroad. They spend billions backing the new technologies which they, in their wisdom, think will prevail. And they cling to a romantic belief that manufacturing is superior to services, let alone finance.

None of this makes sense. The lines between manufacturing and services are blurring. Rolls-Royce no longer sells jet engines; it sells the hours that each engine is actually thrusting an aeroplane through the sky. Governments have always been lousy at picking winners, and they are likely to become more so, as legions of entrepreneurs and tinkerers swap designs online, turn them into products at home and market them globally from a garage. As the revolution rages, governments should stick to the basics: better schools for a skilled workforce, clear rules and a level playing field for enterprises of all kinds.

Leave the rest to the revolutionaries.

The Soviet commies stopped being commies more than 20 years ago (please try to keep up). Since then, they have been dealing with fallout from taking the free market, privatization road.

There a lot of people that aren't cut out for science, engineering and math or college for that matter. And since there are only so many trade school related jobs, where do they find a job that pays a decent wage?

Skilled trades.

Instead of getting a government loan to major in philosophy, how about learning how to be a plumber, auto mechanic, electrician, or another skilled trade?

There are a lot of liberal arts majors tending bar and waiting on tables. I know a bunch.

The idiot politicians have this stupid notion that getting any college degree is better than no college degree at all.

That is COMPLETELY wrong.

Or it could mean that they start their own business.

An example of what has become wrong with America...

There are a ton of people who would love to start a taxi company in New York.

They get a driver's license. They buy a car. They take a test. They get their car inspected. All reasonable requirements, but no dice -- government requires them to get a Taxi Mendelian, which now costs $1 million.

There are examples all over the country of government's doing really stupid things to prevent very small business people from serving customers and contributing to society.

Many poor people (including blacks and immigrants) who want to start their own business and rely on themselves can't do so because government has restricted the market to prevent competition.

One option for these ambitious people is to become someone else's employee (often times at minimum wage), rather than following their own dreams.

America became a GREAT country because we enabled people to follow their own dreams, open a business, and become their own boss.

So, some turn to the black market (drugs, etc), because being their own boss is the only way that they can possibly live the American dream.

Now, governments at all levels are systematically destroying people's dreams by restricting entry into markets to create monopolies or oligopolies for themselves or for the special interests.

It's sick and wrong.

What are we going to do about it???

you are underestimating the enemy

Actually, you are over estimating the enemy. The enemy is not dead, but they are struggling.

In a closed nation, tyrants can very quickly gain control and do whatever they want.

We don't live in closed society any longer.

Let the U.S. government disconnect us from the global internet. Do you think that people will just roll over and play dead???

NO, people's livelihoods depend on the internet. No offense, because I don't know how old you are, so perhaps you don't understand this. If Obama (or anyone else) tried to take control of the internet there would be a revolution.

We've just seen it with PIPA. Politicians on both sides (including golden-haired boy Rubio) supported it. They all had to quickly change their positions because of the outrage that they received.

The Internet is air to the digital economy.

Yes, the bastard politicians will continue to try to control everything. But's it's not 1917 anymore. They cannot shut off the free-flow of information. The free-flow of information is their downfall.

It's much easier to prevent freedom than it is to take it away.

The same people may be running the government, and the government may be just as corrupt as ever, but it ain't communist any more. (Where did you get the idea that only communist governments could be corrupt?)

The Russian economic system has "Made is America" written all over it.

Gaidar, Chubias, and Vasiliev studied Western models of capitalist economies and similar economic reform efforts, specifically the reform efforts of economist Jeffrey Sachs in Poland. Sachs had implemented “shock therapy” programs and policies in his efforts to convert the Polish economy to a market based economy. His shock therapy programs involved the rapid conversion of all property and assets to private ownership. Shortly after learning about Sachs's rapid conversion programs, Gaidar invited Sachs to advise Yeltsin’s new economic team, which Sachs quickly accepted.[1]

Harvard Project

With the collapse of the Soviet Union, one of the highest ranking individuals in the U.S. Treasury, Lawrence Summers, was called upon to facilitate the transition in Russia's economy. Summers had close ties with Harvard University as an alumnus and professor. He also had close ties with Andrei Shleifer, an economist at Harvard. Shleifer was sent to Moscow by the World Bank to facilitate the conversion of the Russian economy. Additionally, Shleifer directed key elements of the reform effort of the Harvard Institute for International Development.[1]

HIID advised the Russian government on privatizing its economy and on how to create capital markets, as well as how to develop the necessary laws and institutions to regulate them those markets. This project, which was contracted to HIID by USAID became known as the "Harvard Project". Though USAID contributed more than $40 million of U.S. government funds to the activities of HIID in Russia, there was little supervision of activities by the United States government.[1]

While Andrei Shleifer technically led the Harvard project on behalf of HIID, his presence in Moscow was limited as he supervised the project from HIID’s headquarters in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Shleifer’s wife, Nancy Zimmerman, a hedge fund manager, became involved in the project, reflecting some of the conflicts of interest.[1] Unable to spend the necessary time needed in Russia, Shleifer appointed Jonathan Hay to supervise the day-to-day operations of the project. Hay had been an associate of Shleifer, as well as an associate of Sachs. It helped that Hay was fluent in Russian. Though Hay appeared a valid candidate for the vital position as HIID supervisor of activities in Russia, he lacked practical experience.[1]

You can't resist an opportunity to attack, however you never offer a counter argument.

Talk about changing the topic to something more manageable, the thread topic isn't me, Eric.

If you don't agree that the Russian economic system was planned with the help of American economists, then offer up some information that refutes my statement. If you think the Russian economic system is still communist, then tell us why.

What has that got to do with the third industrial revolution (thread topic)?

You BRAG about your ignorance, and have it as your friggin' signature. So this leads to the logical question, which I've posed to you three times.

Your sig makes it part of the thread, and thus fair game.

WHY can't you answer the question?

What makes you think your ignorant opinion has any value?

If you think her opinion is ignorant and has no value, why do you keep asking for it? And really, your tag lines used to feature cartoon animals throwing feces..that didn't automatically make every thread about your favorite fetish.

So then, using your logic I could post anything and it would become the thread topic because it was now part of the thread - have I got that right?

Then (e)very thread Eric posts on must be about you, me and a few others here. I think he's cracking up.

BTW, I am able to answer your question and will if it is ever asked in an appropriate place. However, that doesn't mean you are capable of understanding the answer.

The lack of insight into his own behavior is profound.

Could you two libTURD hags please quit talking to each other?

I can actually feel the world getting more stupid when you two "communicate" with each other.

The world is already STUPID enough.

Please stop.

(For the children.)

Spoiled, stupid and ignorant, brain dead phuckwads, libTURD fools, tools, and idiots, are the real sickness; the messiah "king" obammy and his regime are only the symptoms.

Aha, THIS is where you've just surrendered... switching screen- names, to (again) attempt to defend the indefensible.

It'd be cute, were it not for the fact that you always try to play this game.

You've trapped yourself, and have no easy exit. So voila, enter MING to save the day!

(QUITE the coincidence, eh? LOL.)

Oh, and BTW, since you're attempting to (again) divert attention, so that you can escape the trap, we'll call the score as follows:

Capitalist Eric: 2
LoonyMing: 0

Thanks for playing. And thanks for the laughs.

One consistent thing about you, Eric, is.... you are always clueless.

He 'thinks' again that I answered for you and pinged his groupies. I'm surprised he didn't ping Wood_Chopper. He's just too funny.

Why would he have to ping his groupies when he's declared himself 2 points ahead.

Poor Eric, he really is confused.

I've seen the latest generation of 3D printers.

Not only can they print static 3D structures, they can print moving parts, like gears, within a 3D structure. It's a truly revolution technology.

I've seen this with my own eyes. They are amazing. I remember last year some time that Republican leftist on LP named Willie Green told me I didn't know what I was talking about when discussing this technology. He was a supposed expert even though he admitted it had been decades since he had worked with this type of equipment. What an ignorant douche bag. Even when I showed him multiple you tube videos he wouldn't admit he was wrong.
