The Future of Manufacturing

When you think about the world of manufacturing, it might not register as the most exciting thing. Dull assembly lines, flickering lights, bored workers, the works. Well, not anymore. In this episode, we talk with two Ohio State experts about the current state of manufacturing in the United States. They discuss how it’s vastly different from the past, how it’s improving, and where we need to go to catch up to the rest of the world.
