What is Distributed manufacturing?

Distributed Manufacturing (DM) refers to networked production planning of geographically dispersed production facilities for the aims of agility–responsiveness to customer demand, flexibility–robustness of the production network, and sustainability–seriousness of the manufacturing process’s environmental impact.

DM is also linked to the “distributed economy,” which is a more sustainable alternative network made up of local small-scale producers who use local resources, redefining efficiency, scalability, and the consumer-producer relationship.
