It was a busy 2022 for manufacturers. The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) noted the industry’s value-added output rose to $2.768 trillion in the second quarter of 2022, up from $2.703 trillion in Q1 of 2022 and an all-time high. NAM also revealed that by November 2022, manufacturing employed 12.93 million workers.

These facts are illustrative of manufacturing’s continuous expansion. With growth comes room for new processes, improvements, and tools. It also brings a host of new challenges to overcome.
